Project Spotlight: National Detail's Nippert Stadium West PavilionMarch 1, 2018
Lincoln, Nebraska-based National Detail was part of the project team that won a Merit Award in the 2017 Innovative Design in Engineering and Architecture with Structural Steel awards program (IDEAS2), presented annually by AISC.
The $86-million addition to the University of Cincinnati’s Nippert Stadium — the third-oldest Football Bowl Subdivision stadium — includes a 115,000-square-foot, 130-yard-long West Pavilion, with premium seating, luxury suites, press facilities and more.
The pavilion wraps the upper west edge of the seating bowl and towers more than 120 feet above the field below. Its dynamic form defines the stadium edge, and a curtain wall with large glass panels facilitates views through and from the structure, showcasing the efficient X-braced structural steel frame that helps to establish the building's identity.
The project — which also won Second Place Commercial in the 2017 SDS/2 Solid Steel Competition — is the March feature in the 2018 SDS/2 calendar.
