TenCate Mirafi® for ballpark Gwinnett Braves

A ballpark had to be designed and built for the Gwinnett Braves in Lawrenceville (Georgia) to accommodate 10,200 spectators. Naturally mission accomplished – thanks in part to the application of TenCate Mirafi® HS/PP in the construction of 9m to 12m high retaining walls. TenCate Mirafi® HS/PP are high-strength woven geotextiles based on polyester and polypropylene fibres − so extremely strong and endowed with excellent cohesive characteristics.

TenCate Geosynthetics Pendergrass could deliver them quickly, and the design team from Wall Technologies Co. supplied the structural solution. To meet the challenging deadline, the teams worked in shifts to install on average 110 m² of wall per day.

The pictures give an impression of the build site.
