Aviators Ballpark Las Vegas 

A newly constructed ballpark in Las Vegas, America. Achieving desert aesthetic on Snap-Clad metal panels. Using Sherwin-Williams Furopon® coating containing Kynar 500® FSF® PVDF resin to ensure durable coatings. Read and see more about the projects in this case study. 

Opened in 2019, the ballpark constructed for the Triple-A Las Vegas Aviators team hit a home run with the design and materials specified for the project. 
In fact, it was named winner of 2021 MiLB Triple-A Best of the Ballparks by Ballpark Digest.
Howard Hughes, owner of the Howard Hughes Corporation and the Aviators baseball team, bought the land where this ballpark would eventually be built.  To manifest this new 10,000-person capacity ballpark into existence, Devin Norton, a designer with HOK, delivered a design inspired by the corporation owner’s desert and aeronautical history. The base reflects the Red Rock Canyon and Summerlin, Nevada area, while the upper portion of the ballpark uses a mix of steel, glass and metal, similar to aviation materials.
 To achieve the desert aesthetic on the base, 31,000 square feet of PAC-CLAD Snap-Clad panels from Petersen Aluminum was installed. The Snap-Clad panels are typically used as roofing panels but were specified for the exterior walls in repeating patterns. In addition, these metal panels are coated in a custom Chocolate Chip Fluropon® finish from Sherwin-Williams Coil Coatings, containing Kynar 500® FSF® resin, helping to complete the desert landscape look. This durable coating system allows the ballpark’s dramatic hues to stay fresh despite the harsh sunny and hot environment.  The stunning Aviators Ballpark is now a cornerstone of downtown Summerlin.
