When the University of Illinois was ready to add a new press box and suites to Memorial Stadium, staff turned to MSA for support. MSA designed a support apparatus for a scaffolding system that would allow the installation of the new, three-story glass curtain wall for the addition. After analyzing the load capacity of the existing girders'  and the bearing capacity of the pre-cast concrete stairs, MSA designed a three-dimensional trussed platform.

In 2009, this project received an Excellence in Structural Engineering Award from the National Council of Structural Engineers Association in the Outstanding Project Award Category.
