America’s Cup Means More Construction

August 27, 2012

Looking for something to do this month now that there are no longer Olympics to be watching? You could join the hundreds of thousands of spectators gathering around the piers in San Francisco for the America’s Cup World Series events.

This means exciting things for the Bay Area. San Francisco gets to welcome the Cup – the oldest international sporting trophy – back to the U.S. for the first time since 1995. It also means loads of preparation and construction. Naturally, the city is well-suited to the race given its wind and weather patterns, which aid in planning televised segments, and make for a challenging course. The geography and panoramic (and free!) views along the Bay make the location as perfect for watching as it is for competing. Still, there is a lot of work to be done to prepare for the events.

By Summer 2013, completed projects like the America’s Cup Village, grandstands, and even the new Pier 27 Cruise Ship Terminal that just received its final steel beam – just to name a few – will have commanded local materials, employees and services. Here at MAXX Metals, we’re looking forward to a busy year.
