What was done?
Trex Commercial played a key role in this project providing 3,867 linear feet of custom fabricated railing. Football fans will find the company’s custom engineered picket, mesh, glass, cane, drink rail, and more throughout The Shamrock Zone’s main concourse, suite level, office level, and southeast viewing terrace.

What were the results?
“Trex Commercial was key to completing this project and turning the space over in time for the 2021 football season,” said Chris Ryan, project manager with JE Dunn Construction. “Their coordination efforts, engagement in the project and timely execution played a big part in delivering such a complex and fast-paced project on time and on budget — all while navigating a global pandemic. Kansas State Athletics is extremely happy with their new space and with the partnership that JE Dunn Construction and Trex created throughout the job.”

Fans can now enjoy permanent concessions, video boards, additional restrooms and a new 13,500-square-foot club space complete with a kitchen, lounge area and plenty of seating and tables to enjoy food, drinks and friends.
