Tim Hortons Field

The Project

The 2015 Pan American Games were headed to Canada, and they were in need of venues to host their events. Timing couldn’t have been better as the Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the Canadian Football League (CFL), were also looking to renovate their near century-old Ivory Wynne Stadium. A deal was made and the two projects became one. When initial delays were greater than expected, Kingspan’s KS Micro-Ribs panels were specified to help with the build-speed and sustainability of the multi-functional stadium.

The end result was a stadium fit for both FIFA and CFL requirements – and with the help of this panel system, the brand new stadium went on to achieve a LEED Silver certification.

Having the single component wall system arrive on site ready to install meant that the schedule was unlikely to be delayed by weather, as seen with other parts of the project. The pre-manufactured assembly of the single component insulated metal panels also meant a reduction in scheduling delays, as it eliminated the need for multiple trades for its installation.


A Great Result

The funding for this project was primarily from the Canadian government, who implemented a federal sustainable development strategy for Canada just a few years prior. With so much invested in the new stadium, it was imperative that the project fit into their sustainable future goals. As the KS Series Micro Rib panels were pre-manufactured, this eliminated related construction site waste. Add in a decreased environmental impact, and Kingspan’s contribution met the Canadian movement’s sustainability plan, as well as its own initiative for a zero landfill target.
