The new home of the New York Giants and the New York Jets was completed in 2010 where Commodore Construction was hired as a subcontractor to Skanska to place the site concrete work including multiple colored and custom inset sidewalks, curbs, and reinforced planter walls. The stadium is the first of its kind to house two separate NFL teams that share a 50/50 partnership in the stadium. The design of the stadium is open to the air, and the facade is made up almost entirely of louvers and decorative lighting that can change with ease to match the colors of the team that is playing.
The concrete design for the stadium is primarily pile supported slab on grade. Special tie downs were installed to counter any uplift force at certain locations, but the piles can support slabs from 75 tons to 150 tons. There is continuous mat reinforcement at all slabs that vary in thickness. Commodore’s Concrete team placed thousands of square feet of sidewalk and cut seemingly endless control joints at the site that leads thousands of patrons through the many entrances and exits to the stadium.
