The latest place to see our work is Jacksonville, Florida, at the newly opened Daily’s Place Amphitheater. Daily’s Place seats 5,500 people and is connected to both EverBank Field football stadium and a brand new 94,000 square foot indoor football practice field.
The exterior structure of Daily’s Place is formed from 67,000 square feet of PTFE fiberglass fabric panels suspended from a series of steel trusses. Each truss spans nearly 200 feet from south to north. The PTFE fabric roof allows natural light to enter the space without also allowing in heat, and maximizes natural ventilation to keep guests cool without artificial air conditioning. At night, the PTFE helps to create a dramatic effect with colored LED lights. The roof’s structure rises to create a ceiling that reaches 70 feet at the apex of the amphitheater. The PTFE fabric panels can withstand winds up to 135 mph. The amphitheater features a main floor that can seat up to 4,000 and a mezzanine and balcony, which can each seat up to 1,000.
