Developed by the Atlanta Falcons Stadium Company, LLC and owned by the Georgia World Congress Center, the $1.6 billion, 2 million square foot Mercedes-Benz Stadium project included iconic architecture, a retractable roof, permanent seating for 71,000 for NFL, MLS, and additional sports-related games and entertainment venues; including premium seats, luxury suites, 7 restaurants, and two parking decks with accommodations for 21,000 vehicles.
LONG provided various land surveying and SUE/UC related services over a span of 4+ years. Initially, LONG prepared a preliminary boundary survey, aerial mapping, and utilities for the 45-acre North Site, north of the World Congress Center; and then, provided this same service for the 33-acre South Site, south of the Georgia Dome. When the South Site was selected by the Atlanta Falcons as the site for their new stadium, LONG performed a complete field run boundary, topographic, utility, and tree survey of the site. Additionally, LONG prepared right of way abandonment plats for the 7 roadways to be removed or relocated; individual boundary surveys used to acquire the many parcels that made up the property; a consolidation plat combining these parcels; and an ALTA/NSPS boundary survey of the entire property.
LONG staked geotechnical bore holes, provided construction staking of the stadium including the mega-columns, two parking decks, and the Home Depot Back Yard tailgating lot and the Falcon’s statue. During construction of the retractable roof, LONG spent 6 months surveying the exact location of targets on the roof truss members for use by the structural engineer to determine if deflections were within tolerance.
