Four bidders emerge on new Braves ballpark construction project

Atlanta BravesThe numbers haven’t been crunched, but we have four bids in for construction of a new Atlanta Braves ballpark, scheduled to open for the 2017 season.

The four construction groups submitting bids, in alphabetical order:

  • American Builders, a consortium that includes Mortenson Construction (Minneapolis), Barton Malow (Southfield, Mich.), Brasfield & Gorrie and New South Construction (both Atlanta). Mortenson has a slew of sports-construction experience (including Target Field and the new Minnesota Vikings stadium), as does Barton Malow.
  • Clark Construction Group (Bethesda, Md), whose projects have included Nationals Park.
  • Hunt Construction Group (Indianapolis) and Holder Construction in a joint bid. Hunt’s resume includes AT&T Park and Marlins Park.
  • Turner Construction Company, the international giant whose resume includes the new Yankee Stadium.

The budget for the project is $672 million. Cobb County commissioners and staff as well as Braves officials will be grading the bids and come up with a final recommendation by May 27.
