Expansion helps Crimson Tide celebrate championships
Neel-Schaffer provided civil and structural engineering and surveying services for the University of Alabama’s Walk of Champions North End Zone Plaza.
The Plaza provides a grand entrance to the north end of Alabama’s football stadium, Bryant-Denny Stadium, including a main 34-foot wide, lighted, brick-paved walkway that incorporates commemorative championship plaques into the brick paver layout. Additionally, it includes a nine-foot wide lighted, brick-paved sidewalk that provides access to larger than life-size statues of national championship winning coaches.
Neel-Schaffer provided civil site design services for the relocation of water mains, and additional storm and sanitary sewer to accommodate the expansion of the south end zone of the stadium. The design also includes improvements to the portion of Paul W. Bryant Drive adjacent to the expansion. Additional design during construction included temporary parking plans and multiple permanent parking lots upon completion of the expansion.
