150 KSI Post Tensioning System

The city of Orlando wanted to elevate the status of the Citrus Bowl and attract larger schools. To do so they needed to increase the capacity of their 40,000 seat stadium enabling them to offer more money to the participating teams. The additional seating was accomplished with an upper deck along each side. Overlooking the old stadium 140' in the air, the new upper deck doubled the stadium capacity to 80,000. Pomco Associates, Inc. was awarded the contract to supply and erect the upper deck sections along with the four access ramps. The project was a combination of precast and cast in place post tensioned concrete. Williams 1-3/8" dia. 150 KSI All-Thread bars were cast in the foundations raising through the precast sections and tensioning them to the foundation. The entire project was completed in nine months in time for the 1990 New Year's Citrus Bowl game. The Big Ten has since signed a long term contract for the New Year's Day game.

Main Reason They Chose Williams

According to Paul Kraemer, chief engineer, Pomco chose Williams because of the Williams stop-type couplings. The stop-type couplings assured equal thread engagement when making a connection in a blind hole several feet down a column.
