Lucas Oil Stadium
Indianapolis, IN

This operable roof stadium is the home of the Indianapolis Colts and connects to the Indiana Convention Center. The design is a fieldhouse style with a gabled roof. Two main 100' deep super trusses span the length of the stadium and support transverse trusses that carry operable roof panels. The main stadium bowl is cast-in-place concrete raker beams and columns that support precast tread riser units. The concourses are cast-in-place concrete beams and slabs.

The north end framing is steel truss rakers and composite floor framing to accommodate longer spans in the lower level for convention space. Pogues Run, a 40' wide combined over flow sewer, runs beneath the stadium cutting across the south east corner. A series of 21 eleven feet deep and five feet wide concrete transfer beams transfer the stadium columns over this existing sewer.

Project Details: Seats 63,000 | Project Completion 2008 | FRP Services: Structural Engineer of Record for entire facility, excluding roof.
