Galvan Gets Into the End Zone

Galvan Industries is providing hot dip galvanizing for exposed structural steel, hand rail, frames and other steel elements for the new end zone facility at Appalachian State University’s Kidd Brewer Stadium. Hot dip galvanizing will protect the steel from corrosion for decades, even with the harsh winter weather of the Appalachian mountains.

The facility will be 80,000 square feet of space and will accommodate various athletics and academic uses, including spaces for athletic training, hydrotherapy, locker rooms, conference and continuing education training, medical offices, coaches and staff offices, dining facilities, a team store and ticketing office. There will be approximately 1,000 premium seats added to the existing Kidd Brewer Stadium seating structure.

The end zone facility will replace the 45-year-old Owens Field House, which is approximately 34,500 square feet. The $45 million project is scheduled for completion in time for the 2020 football season.  Go Mountaineers!
