The concept that proved to best meet the project requirements was to replace a roughly 40-ft section of the bottom chord, including both main bottom chord members and all the bottom chord horizontal bracing
Rack damage also occurs when fork truck operators push pallets, empty or with product, against end row uprights, which can bend their diagonal or horizontal bracing
Intermediate horizontal bracing
and vertical buttress could have prevented the failure of even some of boundary walls.
The aim was to create a protective, permeable enclosure without horizontal bracing
, which might impede views of the game.
