PRECAST CONCRETE: PRECISION ENGINEERING FOR CIRCULAR STAIR TREADS

The Ft. Worth Arena has circular stairs leading to the entry level as shown in the image below. The AAS team custom fabricated the stone pieces using wet-pour architectural precast concrete to realize the design vision of concentric circular pattern.

  • The AAS team developed custom molds for unique radial shape of the stone pieces required for stair treads at every step/level.
  • The molds design included the circular grooves required on each stone piece.
  • The shape, size and tolerance for each stone piece was confirmed in the design phase using CAD drawings.
  • The project team provided detailed settings plan that identified position of every stone piece.

The in-house color lab developed batch mixes to coordinate color of the precast concrete panels with the dry vibrant-tamp cast stone, and GFRC panels used on the exterior façade & surrounding support buildings of the arena.

Detailed engineering enabled stair treads design to dissolve with the overall end user experience.
