At the entrance of the center there is a horse rearing up and on the inside walls there are metal, galloping horses. These horses stand for the BSU Broncos. There are two concrete towers at the Stueckle Sky Center that are 170 feet tall. 252,360 pounds of rebar and 1,130cubic yards of concrete with 860 embeds of reinforced steel were used in the concrete form to build the North Tower. 220,000 pounds of rebar and 1,116 cubic yards of concrete with 680 embeds of reinforced steel in the concrete form were used to build the South Tower. The North Tower concrete was poured at 10 inches per hour. The South Tower concrete was poured at 14 inches per hour. It took 6-8 days to pour and complete the towers. People worked 8-hour shift through 24 hours to complete the towers. There are three elevators in the North Tower and two elevators in the South Tower. There are two more elevators on the other side of the North Tower.
