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.
