Another USTA Tennis Stadium Features a PTFE Membrane Roof/Facade by Birdair
Part of a second phase renovations at the USTA Billy Jean King National Tennis Center included construction of a new 8,000 seat Grandstand Stadium in the southwest quadrant of the Tennis Center. Simultaneously, field courts 7 through 16 will be moved south so that a larger pedestrian and fan esplanade can be created, better connecting the new Grandstand with Court 17. This southern expansion also allows the USTA to further enhance the fan experience, with a new additional food court, new merchandise locations and sponsor exhibit booths, and other fan amenities across the southern expanse of the Tennis Center.
Birdair's scope of work included design, fabrication, supply and installation of approximate 27,000 sq.ft. of PTFE-Coated Mesh Facade and some 23,000 sq.ft. of solid PTFE-Coated Fiberglass Membrane for the cantilevered roof system.
