SoFi Stadium & Performance Venue totals 3 million square feet and has 28' 10" and 31' 10" decks. The interior corridors had openings requiring high wind loads with plaster finishes creating very large studs with heavy gauges. Parts of the moat wall framing had continuous 68' walls with 6" 14 gauge, 3.5" flange studs at 8" on center, with large movement requirements. Particularly on the performance venue, every stud was its own individual radius with its own design, no stud was the same. The also project had tall walls without structural support and heavy design requirements, creating huge challenges. The studs on this project were massive and heavy, they had had to be pulled up with different cranes and a hoist. Extensive coordination was required with MEP systems. On the Performance Venue, each stud of the radius walls was laid out with a 3D QML system. No stud was the same.
