Project Profile: Helicopter Landing Pads at Circuit of the Americas

Faced with a challenge in early 2012, Austin engineers Carlson, Brigance & Doehring (CBD) understood the requested helicopter pads at the Circuit of the Americas weren’t just for shuttling patrons to and from the venue. These pads would also serve as a critical link for emergency medical teams. CBD chose Fiberweb’s GrassProtecta to ensure that more than 2300 landings and takeoffs would come off without a hitch, regardless of weather or ground conditions. The helicopter pads have received high praise from the Federal Aviation Administration and as a result the Circuit of the Americas has chosen GrassProtecta for nearby vehicular parking, work to begin in the summer of 2013.
