University Of Phoenix Stadium


The biggest barrel cactus in the state describes the amazing University of Phoenix Stadium project in Glendale, AZ.

CENTRIA Formawall® Dimension Series® and exposed fastener panels in Platinum are coated with a mica finish that reflects the surrounding desert setting. Formawall Dimension Series panels feature a steep slope drain shelf allowing the panels to bend back to form part of the roof and permitting the panels to properly shed water. Vertical recesses between panel areas allow light to radiate from inside the structure. Thermally efficient Formawall Dimension Series is the very first exterior building product to achieve Cradle to Cradle CertificationCM.
