An Overview of Waterproofing World-Class Stadiums: Maintenance, Restoration, and Repair

May 03, 2022

Waterproofing world-class stadiums and stadium structural maintenance management make up crucial components that ensure the safety of fans, players, and employees. Stadium structures consist of concrete and steel, constantly exposed to the elements and high traffic. These factors can compromise structural integrity, requiring stadium maintenance, restoration, and repair. 

Everything from the stadium roof structure to the support beams to the flooring needs careful maintenance and upkeep. According to IbisWorld.com“Over the five years to 2021, demand for the Sports Stadium Construction industry improved, as funding for industry projects increased in light of the recovering economy. Industry operators build, renovate and maintain sports stadiums, arenas and fields. Increasing incomes have caused government tax receipts to grow, leading to higher funding for educational and commercial institutions.”

The report noted, “Moreover, the economic recovery has also caused sports franchise industry revenue to grow, which when combined with growing public funds, caused demand for large professional sports stadiums to rise as well. Therefore, industry revenue is expected to increase at an annualized rate of 1.7% to $12.3 billion over the five years.” This growth puts an even greater demand on the maintenance of stadium structures. 

The longevity of your facility requires a regular, consistent maintenance plan that is tailored to your building and includes all of the numerous factors that play into the stadium’s life expectancy. Below are some tips on maintaining and waterproofing world-class stadiums to help reduce the need for frequent repairs and reconstruction.

Why Waterproofing Is Vital for Stadium Maintenance and Building Upkeep

Waterproofing world-class stadiums are vital for stadium maintenance as it protects the structure’s longevity. The stadium roof structure covers and protects everything under it and within the building itself. Without proper waterproofing, corrosion, movement, and constant exposure to fluctuating temperatures can cause the structure to fracture as water can seep into these areas and cause structural damage.   

Stadium Maintenance and Upkeep Considerations to Keep in Mind

There are several maintenance considerations to consider when maintaining and repairing a stadium structure. Below are a few suggestions.

Maintaining routine waterproofing care and maintenance can make it easier for facility managers and crews to keep a safe and operational stadium in good working order.

How Waterproofing Services Extend the Life of Stadiums and Improve Cost-Effectiveness of Maintenance

Waterproofing world-class stadiums and stadium roof structures will extend the life of the components within the design and improve the overall cost-effectiveness of future maintenance. Waterproofing allows for flexibility in the natural movement of the stadium. The waterproofed joints and surfaces maximize the safety, especially in high traffic and heavy load areas. It increases durability while providing low maintenance and easy cleaning of the surfaces. Waterproofing world-class stadiums also provide non-slip protection to ensure the safety of spectators and employees.
