    Dant Clayton construction continues to advance on Yulman Stadium, future home of the Tulane University Football Team.  Steel erection kicked off earlier this month and is now 50% complete.  This week, slab setting began on our Hybrid Precast Stadium System.  This patented Dant Clayton product provides the principal benefits of a traditional concrete stadium at a significantly reduced cost.

    The stadium's steel Vertical Picket Rail system is also currently being installed.  The railing, powder coated in Tulane green, will be featured on the field level, and also surround all of the vomitories, access stairs, and ramps.  Aluminum installation is next up on the Dant Clayton project schedule, slated to begin in November.  The entire athletic facility is scheduled to be complete in the Fall of 2014, coinciding with the inaugural season for the Green Wave as full members of the new American Athletic Conference.

    For a live look at the overall construction progress, check out the Yulman Stadium webcams, featuring views of the ongoing project from the Wilson and Reily Centers.  You can also hear from Jim Alty, Vice President of Facilities Management, and Yvette Jones, Executive Vice President of University Relations and Development, talk about the construction progress of Yulman Stadium here.
