Best Stadium – K-12
Not to be outdone in the Texas high school football stadium arms race, the new $69.9 million dollar McKinney ISD Football Stadium and Events Center has a home and visitor seating capacity of 12,000 and serves the 3 high schools.
The McKinney ISD Football Stadium reflects a classic architectural style featuring brick-clad insulated architectural precast column covers, arches, spandrels, and wall panels as well as structural precast double stadium risers, single risers, and tubs.
The structure was also designed to allow for future expansion. In addition to high school football, the stadium also continues to host the annual college Division II National Championship through 2021, as well as other miscellaneous events.
The architectural precast components, totaling 504 pieces, were manufactured at Enterprise Precast in Corsicana, Texas, while the 226 structural components were manufactured at their sister structural facility, American Concrete Products, in Dallas, TX. Significant collaboration between the precaster’s in-house engineering department and the architect took place to ensure the success of the project.
