Hollywood Park, Los Angeles California
SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles, California is the new home of the Los Angeles Rams and the Los Angeles Chargers NFL teams, opened in summer 2020 at a cost of approx. $2.6 billion dollars.
It is an indoor / outdoor stadium and precinct featuring a fixed, translucent roof covering both the stadium proper and an adjacent pedestrian plaza. The stadium bowl itself has open sides and seats up to 70,000 spectators for most events with the ability to expand up to 1000,000 capacity for larger events. The stadium design features “the Oculus”— an ovular, double-sided 4K HDR video board that suspends from the roof over the field. The structure weighs approximately 2.2 million pounds (1,000 t) and also houses the stadium’s 260-speaker audio system.
CTS Flange supplied industrial plumbing Flanges for the project including our Copper Coated flange which was used extensively throughout the HVAC-R systems of the stadium and surrounding buildings, including a 200,000 square feet (19,000m2) facility neighbouring the stadium which includes a live TV studio and an outdoor broadcast studio.
