MODS Delivers Winning Press Box Project

In what almost amounts to a winning season all by itself, Columbus High School now has an all-star press box to call future games.

High School Football Coach Scott Hilber came to MODS because their existing press box was dangerous and ready to collapse. The MODS design team assembled and quickly created a design to fit the school’s needs.

From start to finish, the project took just a week, allowing the Cardinals to show off their new facility just in time for kick off! Go Cardinals!

Construction Overview:

The base of the new press box includes secure storage behind a 14 gauge steel wall. These steel side walls are 2mm thick which is strong enough to stop a speeding bullet. The only way inside would be with a oxygen cutting torch. The top section has security glass to prevent potential vandalism or break ins.

Topping It Off:

Custom electrical and audio is wired securely within the hardened structure. Final paint and roof treatment delivers years of maintenance free use.
