The following "final" update on the Roof Lift at Cardinals Stadium was provided Tuesday afternoon by Robert S. Aylesworth, Executive Vice President with the Hunt Construction Group:
"The stadium roof was lifted to its maximum elevation of 156 feet above the stadium floor at approximately 2:00 PM on Monday. Local 75 Ironworker crews working for Schuff Steel Company, the steel fabricator and erector, then completed installation of the transfer girders and final attachment of the roof to the concrete frame. In spite of the weather, the roof lift went almost entirely 'as planned' with 5,600 tons of steel lifted and installed during the four-day project."
