Atlanta Falcons Mercedes-Benz Stadium Taking Shape
Covered previously here in ConstructionPro Week (Nov. 2015 and Oct. 2016), the Mercedes-Benz stadium is taking its final shape in preparation for completion this summer. The first scheduled sporting event is for the Atlanta United soccer team on Sunday, July 30, 2017. The drone flyover at the three-minute mark has a good look at the three remaining cranes working through the top opening.
Other videos to check out include one showing the process of lifting a 900,000-pound truss into place (see below) and an 11-minute time lapse posted at the stadium website.
