AT&T Park in San Francisco, Calif. Courtesy Sara Showalter (http://www.sarashowalter.com)
Located at the edge of San Francisco Bay, AT&T Park is the 42,000-seat home of the San Francisco Giants. Home runs hit by Giants sluggers regularly splash into the bay just beyond the right field wall. Design challenges included resisting severe seismic forces on a site with liquefiable soils; coordinating foundations and retrofit of an 80-year-old bulkhead with local engineering sub-consultants;and using a fast-tracked design/construction schedule to meet the opening day deadline.
