Reasons for Galvanizing: Aesthetics, Coating Durability, Corrosion Performance, Prior HDG Experience, Sustainability
Components Galvanized: The entire fence and related components were hot-dip galvanized.
"Hot-dip galvanized steel was the selected solution because of its low cost, maintenance free long service life and abrasion resistance."
The construction of the $400 million New Quebec City Coliseum has been at the epicenter of Quebec politics for several years.

This position in the spotlight and the inner-city location make every component of the project vital. The need to limit access to the paid parking areas required fencing and hot-dip galvanized steel was the selected solution because of it's low cost, maintenance free long service life and abrasion resistance.
Other important factors included the challenging service condition of fencing being buried in salt laden snow banks, an environment in which HDG has a proven track record. A major consideration by the decision makers was the successful widespread use of galvanizing in the other surrounding public venues such as the fairgrounds building and the main exposition hall which all share the same site as the new stadium.
While the tonnage is small this project is situated in an intensely busy area with year round visibility and the high degree of scrutiny by several levels of government will highlight the competitive advantages of hot-dip galvanizing to important decision makers.
