Historical Stadium Meets Modern Standards with Overlaid Plywood Forms

A massive renovation project on the Berkeley campus at the University of California  brought the historic California Memorial Stadium up to modern standards.

Built in 1923, the aging facility required renovations and a seismic retrofit to reduce seismic risk while maintaining the architecture and character of the celebrated structure. The $321-million project included massive amounts of concrete formed with high and medium density overlaid plywood.
