Overview

After playing at the House that Ruth Built for 85 years, the New York Yankees moved across the street to a new stadium that revived many of the design themes that were stripped from the original during its 1974 renovation. The new stadium includes signature design features such as a 500-foot-wide scoreboard/video board with cantilevered end bays, and a suite level and upper deck seating that cantilevers 50 feet beyond the main level concourse, creating unobstructed views.

A leading engineering challenge was the requirement for highly detailed, aesthetic connections, including the design of the trademark frieze, which also plays a structural role as the front girder of the canopy. Developing the project in a Tekla model enhanced the design review of these and other important exposed structural elements. The thought process from the beginning combined structural requirements and the highest level of aesthetics, resulting in a structure that is elegant both technically and visually.

Project Delivery Methods

Our structural engineers have experience in the full spectrum of delivery methods, from traditional design-bid-build, to fast-track, construction manager-at-risk (CMR), design-build, Integrated Project Delivery (IPD), Lean Project Delivery (LPD) and hybrids of all of these.

Our collaborative approach is well suited to newer delivery methods that are designed to foster greater cooperation, and we strategically apply the benefits and best practices of these methods to enhance traditional design-bid-build projects.
