STA­DIUM RE­PAIRS

The Hamilton Spectator - - LOCAL -

Here’s a high­light list of post-con­struc­tion fixes the city has stepped in to do so far: in­stalling draft beer lines; re­plac­ing 12 rain-dam­aged tele­vi­sion screens (in­door mon­i­tors were ini­tially in­stalled out­doors);

swap­ping out faulty baby-chang­ing ta­bles, re­plac­ing rail­ings in var­i­ous areas; im­prov­ing ven­ti­la­tion in the pop­corn-mak­ing room;

in­stalling eight water-bot­tle-fill­ing sta­tions (the miss­ing foun­tains were an over­sight of the city, not the builder);

pay­ing for emer­gency gen­er­a­tors to power the sta­dium dur­ing a Ti­cats home game when a trans­former failed;

pay­ing a foren­sic en­gi­neer to in­ves­ti­gate af­ter a mas­sive tower speaker plunged into the empty foot­ball stands last sum­mer. A sub­se­quent safety au­dit of other hang­ing fea­tures was also com­pleted.

New plans to fix leaky ex­pan­sion joints as well as faulty floor drains. Fans had long re­ported prob­lems with drains, while the orig­i­nal sta­dium builder tried to redo fail­ing wa­ter­proof seals in the stands as early as 2015;

Up­com­ing plans to im­prove au­dio and video sys­tem at sta­dium.
