Churchill Downs

Louisville, KY

Ben Hur was contracted to erect 486 pieces of precast at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky.  This precast Colonnade consisted of columns, spandrels, and decorative caps all placed to aid in crowd control and bring a fresh new look to the Iconic facility.  The new Colonnade seamlessly flows to accommodate entry and exit gates, a new main ticket area, security offices, shipping gates, and screen walls to hide the main electrical transformers.   The highlight of the project is the new Main Entrance which consists of arched spandrel panels set between decorative columns and ornate topping pieces.
