Project Profile Spotlight

Verizon Wireless Amphitheater

This fan-shaped amphitheater located at Retama Park outside of San Antonio provides covered seating for 8,000 concert-goers with lawn seating for an additional 12,000 patrons. The structure, which was designed and fabricated by Heavy Structures, rises 67' above grade at the stage. The primary structural system consists of 12' deep parallel-chord trusses that span from 120' across the narrow part of the fan to 240' in the center. The trusses were factory assembled from hot-rolled shapes and are supported on 5' diameter concrete columns.
