The House that Maxx Metals Helped Build

March 16, 2012

After a few slow years in Bay Area construction, optimism in the business community is giving rise to a new building boom. One example of this resurgence is the 49ers’ new football stadium in Santa Clara.  The San Francisco 49ers currently play in the extremely outdated Candlestick Park which was built in 1950’s.  San Francisco 49ersIn 2006, the team first released plans for a new stadium in San Francisco proper, but when funding and support for the project fell through, they decided on Santa Clara, which is roughly 45 miles to the southeast and actually boarders on San Jose. The new multi-use stadium, which breaks ground this spring, will seat 68,000 and include over 109,000 square feet of meeting space. In a nod to the 21st century, the stadium is going to be environmentally friendly.  It is already registered with the US Green Building Council and it will include a green roof, photovoltaic panels, excellent public transit access, and water-conserving plumbing fixtures.  The HVAC systems will have no CFC’s and they hope to recycle or salvage 75% of the non-hazardous construction waste. When the stadium is completed in 2015, it will cover 1.85 million square feet and cost $1.02 billion.

Of course, you can’t build even the most green stadium without a whole lot of steel and metal. At Maxx Metals, our diverse inventory of hot dipped galvanized and carbon steel products, along with our stainless steel and aluminum items will make this new billion-dollar project possible. Many of the contractors involved in building the new stadium have already put in their orders with us and cannot wait to get started this spring.

When the 49ers take the field in the fall of 2014, it wouldn’t be too farfetched to say that they will be playing in the house that Maxx Metals helped build. If you want to learn more about this project, you can always visit the 49ers website.
