The Edward Jones Dome at America’s Center hosted the 2005 NCAA Final Four.

The $280 million facility was opened in 1995. The structure had been built to attract a National Football League team to St. Louis, and successfully lured the Rams from Los Angeles. The dome has a seating capacity of approximately 66,000, with retractable seating enabling multiple configurations for a variety of non-football events. 

Scope of Work

The project involves applying an epoxy floor coating to seating areas, stairs, vertical risers, and portal entryways in the stadium’s club level.

Diamond grinders will be used to remove laitance and surface contaminants, and to achieve a coarse surface profile meeting ICRI CSP 2 standards.

 Contract documents include illustrations to clearly identify the scope of work.

The concrete will be refinished with an amine epoxy primer and finish, with a polypropylene homopolymer additive to increase skid resistance. The project also includes applying safety striping on stairs, as well as stenciled seat numbers and lettering, using a compatible epoxy coating.
