Kress Events Center

University of Wisconsin Kress Center
Green Bay, Wisconsin

UW-Green Bay26-hiThe Kress Events Center at the University of Wisconsin utilized Fabral metal roofing panels to their fullest potential to create this unique, curved design. 125 Stand ‘N Seam metal roof panels measuring 327 feet span this extensive curved roofing project. Each panel was field formed at the roof line and curved to create this unique design. Stand ‘N Seam panels were chosen for several reasons: continuous movement, availability in both steel and aluminum, and most importantly, the highest wind rating (over 90) available. In total, 174,000 square feet were added to this university sports center complete with a snow retention rail system.

Student and campus goals for this facility were to make recreation more accessible. The Kress Center provided a highly visible and attractive activity center for students, faculty, staff, and community members and significantly expanded opportunities for organized and unorganized fitness and recreation activities by students, faculty, and staff. It created a venue with acoustics suitable for large-attendance campus events that fostered a sense of community and connection with the local region, including convocations, commencements, student organization and new student welcome activities, and small concerts and performances. The center also provided support spaces for existing instruction in physical education and future instruction in emerging health and fitness related fields. It created a noteworthy home for the Fighting Phoenix Division I Athletic Program with competition spaces for teams, practice, conditioning, and sports medicine support for all student athletes, office space for staff, and facilities that address Title IX and other gender equality requirements.
