Kauffman Stadium Gets New Perforated Metal Exterior

Kauffman Stadium architects chose McNICHOLS® Perforated Metal to modernize the structure's architecture with an attractive functional skin.

Perforated Metal Exterior

Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri, home of the Major League Baseball Team, the Kansas City Royals recently underwent major renovations. The stadium originally opened in 1973 and has hosted over 90 million fans since that year. The original non-enclosed, open-air stadium recently underwent a $250 million renovation to provide visitors with upgraded amenities and the latest in advanced building technology.

The newly renovated stadium, debuting in 2010, showed off a massive curtain wall wrapping the front of the building. The 345 feet wide curtain wall is made of both glass and metal panels that extend over 50 feet in height. The metal panels along the curtain wall were made of McNICHOLS® Aluminum Perforated Metal. The lead architects on the remodel chose Perforated Metal to modernize the architecture of the exterior of the stadium with an attractive and functional skin. The project required 50 different sizes of Perforated Metal panels. Our Fabrication Team was able to individually cut to size each of the Perforated Metal Sheets to fit properly within the aluminum channels or mullions.
