Cotton Bowl

NOW Specialties presents the Cotton Bowl, last renovated in 2012. The Cotton Bowl was originally named Fair Park Stadium, with a seating capacity of 46,000, although periodic retrofits have doubled that capacity to 92,100. Today it is the ninth largest football stadium in the United States.

Heery International was responsible for the 2012 renovation, which featured a dramatic stainless steel mesh design and silver metallic accent band. Cambridge Architectural provided two of their architectural mesh patterns: Midbalance and Pellican, and they were tireless in their support of our installation. NOW Specialties is grateful for the opportunity to work with Balfour Beatty Construction, the architect, and our excellent suppliers throughout the improvement of this true Dallas icon.

"NOW Specialties was an instrumental Subcontractor/Design Build Partner to the Success of the Design-Build Project. They provided constant leadership and teamwork approach to the project. They were definitely an A+ subcontractor to a difficult project".
