JointMaster Delivers on Fast-Track Completion of Citrus Bowl Renovation


Milwaukee, Wis. — Dec. 16, 2014 — Inpro’s JointMaster division soundly delivered during a veritable “two-minute drill” leading to the on-time and successful major reconstruction of the Citrus Bowl Stadium in Orlando, Fla.

The $207 million project was completed in just 10 months, totally transforming the stadium, and boosting its capacity to 65,000.

JointMaster provided a combined 2.25 miles of expansion joints, fire blanket, foam seals, and cover plates used throughout the reconstructed stadium. The installation included custom-designed stainless steel tread covers for pedestrian spaces in the bowl’s seating area.

“Ten months for a project of this size is aggressive by anyone’s standard,” said Rob Lindberg, division sales director for JointMaster. “The contractor faced hard deadlines for the Phase 1 completion to allow for already-scheduled sports events in November. It’s very satisfying to know we were able to help the construction team score by delivering our products to meet their tight timetable.”

About 90 percent of the stadium was demolished to install a new seating configuration, as well as the addition of 6,000 club seats, 33 luxury suites, a 10,000 square-foot party deck, and new video screens. The first and major phase wrapped in mid-November, and full completion is slated for this April.

JointMaster has supplied expansion joint systems and related products to several major stadium projects, including Fenway Park in Boston, Camp Randall at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Lucas Oil Stadium (home of the Indianapolis Colts), and the University of Arizona.
