New York Mets rotunda stairs

 

Here are jobsite photos of the Rotunda stairs we built for the new New York Mets stadium. The design, formwork, and production of these precast concrete stairs took about 9 months, but the end result is breathtaking I think. They were shipped from our Saxonburg plant and installed in the stadium just before Christmas 2007. It’s a little hard from these photos to see the size of the stairs, but here’s a photo of some of us standing on the first set of 3 in our plant.

I can’t begin to say how proud I am of my father and of my son, who together built the forms to produce these 24 stairs, each of which weigh 12 tons, and which fit together perfectly.
