Georgia Institute of Technology

Atlanta, Georgia

The indoor football facility at Georgia Institute of Technology combines visual interest and function. The curved roof, instantly recognizable on campus, provides adequate space for athletes to practice inside.

Knight Architects applied 80,000 square feet of Fabral Stand ‘N Seam panels in Bone White to the roof providing superior durability. Fabral Select Series 12 concealed fastener panels were used for the soffit also in Bone White.

On-site fabrication allowed the panels to stretch the entire span of the building. Stand ‘N Seam is a high-performance, structural standing seam roof system ideal for the most demanding applications providing superior wind uplift resistance.
