Hayward Field Makes World Debut at the US Track & Field Olympic Trials!
Hayward Field Makes World Debut at the US Track & Field Olympic Trials!

“The Front Runner in Steel Bending. We Tower Above the Rest." We were thrilled to be an integral part of reconstructing Hayward Field at the University of Oregon and got to witness it in person these past two weeks thanks to our niece @ambertanner24 who competed in the NCAA Track & Field Championships in early June and this week in the US Olympic Trials!

Hayward Field is the world-class home to @OregonTF, but this week it takes center stage at the US Track & Field Olympic Trials. Albina created the curved steel diaphragm used to support the roof structure and provided various bent materials to help construct the landmark tower at the northeast corner of the facility. Designers wanted to create a structure that was open and airy, allowing spectators to enjoy great views and natural daylight, in an intimate environment.

Hayward Field University of Oregon Curved Steel Tower

In addition to the iconic roof, the tower at Hayward (187 feet tall) creates a community landmark honoring the first 100 years of track and field at Oregon. We rolled 400 lengths, varying from 20’-0” to 60’-0” long, of Tube Steel 8" X 4" X .500" WALL A500 GR B, 8-5/8" OD X .625" WALL A500C WHEELED, 8-5/8" OD X .375" WALL A500C WHEELED, 8-5/8" OD X .250" WALL A500C WHEELED, and Flat Bar 3/8" X 4½" A36. That is 330,000# lot weight (165 tons) of rolled steel, 10 inbound trucks and 16 outbound trucks! Photo Credit: @brooke_smith_photography
