This blog post shows design assist process, as well as custom fabrication of the large size GFRC panels for the Dickies Arena project. The Arena is sited on the Will Roger’s Memorial Center campus in Ft. Worth, TX.
Custom GFRC Panels Design, Fabrication
The architects for the project aim to develop Art Deco design elements on facades of the arena to match with the 1930s era experience on the campus. The building facade design uses large size GFRC panels with intricate design details in them.
- The AAS team developed series of custom molds to match the large size and intricate design details required for the project.
- The mockups are created to confirm the shapes, details in the fabricated stone panels and color matching.
- AAS works closely with architects and contractors to review details and confirm design feasibility.
AAS has capabilities now to manufacture GFRC products in its Ft. Worth plant as well.
