Built in 1921, University of Tennessee's Neyland Stadium is the largest football stadium in the south and the third largest college stadium in the country. Shortly after football players cleared the field following their last 2008 game, construction teams began tackling the stadium’s two-year Phase III renovation.
The contractor handling the project’s exterior framing, sheathing and metal installations as well as the interior framing, wallboard installation and finishing would normally need a year or more to complete a project of this size, but the timeline was eight months. Two shifts worked on the project, and the ease of use of SECUROCK™ Glass-Mat Sheathing helped complete the job on time. The product cut better and was less dusty. The SECUROCK™ Glass-Mat Sheathing was also smoother than other products, which made it easier and faster to apply caulk. Even wet weather did not slow progress since SECUROCK™ Glass-Mat Sheathing panels are designed for use in most exterior systems and have the highest possible rating for mold resistance.
With 120,000 square feet installed, The Neyland Stadium renovation is one of the largest installations of SECUROCK™ Glass-Mat Sheathing. Installers were happy that while using SECUROCK™ Glass-Mat Sheathing, there was no itch like there is with other products.
