From the initial concept sketch only CS can design and test a custom cover to meet your project’s requirements.
We have a team of technical experts that can work with you to design a custom cover that meets your project’s specific requirements. We can show you in person how your expansion joint cover will function and operate under real-life conditions with our exclusive full-scale test chamber, which has evaluated some of the industry’s largest joint covers.
Project: California Memorial Stadium
Architect: HNTB Architects & STUDIOS Architecture
Product: Customized Seismic Stair System
Located directly over the Hayward Fault, California Memorial Stadium was the first facility to require 12" expansion, compression and lateral movement. In less than 21 months, we designed, tested and fabricated the custom joint cover assemblies for six seismic joint openings around the stadium bowl. These custom stair risers and treads throughout the stadium help reduce seismic risk and ensure life safety in a major seismic event.Tell us about your project
