Walt Snyder Stadium
The entire Walt Snyder Stadium grandstand structure is composed of precast concrete. The project’s budget focused on filling bugholes for a specific square footage and taking proactive measures to extend the life of the structure. Plastermix was used on the stair risers at eye level to provide a very uniform texture for the most visible areas. D & A Masonry addressed bugholes on the higher level risers by using a hopper sprayer to apply Elastideck, a cementitious membrane, and then driving the Elastideck into the bugholes with drywall knives. This technique provided a very smooth surface. Elastideck was also used on the stair treads, and to mask the cold joints which were left visible after a previous phase. Super Color Stain, a water based acrylic coating, was used over the Elastideck to provide dirt and stain resistance. Both products are breathable and provide waterproofing to protect the underlying concrete. Color Coat acrylic coating was used on the undersides of the bleachers, the press box and utility shed to provide preventative waterproofing.
