FabriTec Structures completed the installation of 36 outer and 36 inner fixed fabric panels as part of the integrated roof system at BC Place British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada. The stadium reopened to the Canadian Football League (CFL) fans in the late fall of 2011 where the home team, the BC Lions, took on the Edmonton Eskimos in the season’s opener. The purpose of BC Place’s roof replacement – part of a 17-month revitalization project for the stadium – was to replace its previously air-supported dome roof with a modern retractable roof to reveal more than 25,000 square feet of blue sky. The retractable roof has turned BC Place into a year -round, open-air facility and serves as an architectural signature for the Canadian province of British Columbia.
