PC Strand is a 7-wire cable made from high carbon steel. It is used in both pre-stressed and post-tensioned concrete construction applications. PC strand is often used in stadium construction. The new Atlanta stadium being constructed in downtown Atlanta will be made of post tensioned concrete slabs.
In July of 2014 a ground breaking ceremony was held for the new stadium. By September of 2014, the first elevated floor slab was framed and poured. These slabs were post tensioned concrete slabs. Post tensioned concrete slabs are pre-stressed steel cables inside sleeves positioned in form then covered with concrete. This same process will be used on each story of the new stadium. This process will ensure that the new stadium is sturdy as well as maintain the strength.
The new stadium is set to open in 2107. The new $1.2 billion multi-purpose stadium will be an iconic sports and entertainment complex.
