While watching Monday night football, or the upcoming Super Bowl, many SPIDA members will take note of the massiveness of the spiral duct utilized in the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.   The $1.5 billion Atlanta stadium made wide use of spiral duct.   At our general meeting in conjunction with ASHRAE/AHR, we are fortunate to have two of the gentlemen at R.F. Knox Co., Inc out of Atlanta to speak on the accomplishments, as well as the hurdles of a project of this size.  Mr. Sean McNamara who was the project manager on this job can communicate on how they managed to make this job go smoothly in the field, while Mr. Chad Smith, shop superintendent at R.F. Knox, can discuss the planning and staging through the manufacturing process.


The meeting will be held at the Georgia Wold Congress Center in room C106, located at 285 Andrew Young International Blvd NW, Atlanta, GA  30313.  For information about hotel availability, please visit the AHR Expo Website.
