48 JANUARY 2019 COATINGSPROMAG.COM coatings crew — had to wait to be subbed in. "e scope was basically an entire demolition of the interior," Kipp said. "ey kept the four outside walls but took out everything inside. It was basically a shell of a building. ey removed the existing structures to create wraparound concourses and 360-degree seating. e first year was basically a lot of demolition and installing new concourses and stands. It was a total mechanical upgrade." W hile that was going on, Hardig worked with both UC and the general contractors to make sure its plan was a winner. "Pretty much all of 2017, we spent doing mockups and submittals of product," Kipp said. "We didn't do any work other than design and look at the demo." During the early design phase, the owner's architect had asked for a stained logo for the main concourse entry; Kipp called for a tactical adjustment. "I voiced my concerns for the longevity of the stained option with the expected traffic," Kipp explained. "ese were the original 30-year-old slabs, and they were spalled and destroyed. ere was no way we could 've polished what they had.

Hours and hours were spent developing a plan and working with specialty pigment manufacturers to match Pantone colors in concrete, working with drafters to develop forms on a waterjet, and working up a few mockups."

They filled the joints with polyurea and then finished the concrete with a densifier and protective sealer, both by Prosoco.
