Hunter Roberts Construction Lands Yankee Stadium Upgrades

Yankee Stadium improvements

Hunter Roberts Construction has been awarded the contract for the forthcoming upgrades at Yankee Stadium. Before the New York Yankees begin the 2017 season, Yankee Stadium will receive several new amenities that will result in an overhaul of the fan experience. 

The Bullpen Landings are major component of the upgrades, which will also result in a new kid’s area, a batter’s eye deck, party decks in the 300 level, and more. These enhancements will add several new social gathering spaces to improve the guest experience at Yankees and New York City Football Club games.

New Decks to Enhance Guest Experience
The Bullpen Landings, located on the left and right fields, will be social gathering areas, overlooking the visitors and Yankees bullpens. Both landings will feature their own specialty food and drink options to be enjoyed at custom drink-rails with USB outlets. All obstructed-view seats in the bleachers will be removed.

Overcoming Project Challenges to Ensure Success
The scope of work includes deconstructing the bleachers and installing new structural steel and concrete, building scaffold overhead to support temporary roofing and existing utilities while installing the new decks and light fixtures. The project team will need to overcome challenges such as accommodating a short schedule and coordinating around stadium events and unexpected weather conditions.

“Our construction demolition plan and experience with Yankee Stadium and other sports facilities makes Hunter Roberts the ideal choice for this project,” said Project Executive Alex Craig.
