Chosen as the headquarters for the 53rd Super Bowl, the construction of the Mercedes Benz Stadium has been contributed to by Cementos Argos.

A cement company of the Argos Group, Cementos Argos has stated that it is making its mark as the second largest concrete producer in the US, positioning itself as a strategic ally of emblematic works in the country.

With more than 25 500 trips from the company’s mixer trucks, Argos delivered 153 000 m3 of concrete for the construction project. 19 ‘mega columns’ support the stadium, with the company using ice water and liquid nitrogen to keep the mixture cool during the summer, in order to meet technical and strength specifications.

The company also delivered sustainable concrete elements that contributed to the project achieving Leed Platinum status – it is the first stadium to achieve this certification. The headquarters saves up to 29% more energy than others of its kind and the venue has the capacity to hold up to 83 000.
