Deconstruction of Yankee Stadium in the Bronx.

  • COMPLETION DATE
    2010

Overview

We are providing consulting engineering services for the deconstruction of the original iconic Yankee Stadium (“the House that Ruth Built”), located across the street from the Thornton Tomasetti-engineered Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, NY. Working through Stantec Consulting in our role as technical representative to The New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC), we prepared performance and planning documents for the engineered deconstruction, and assisted the project CM, Turner Construction in developing feasible approaches for performing the work. Our work included preparing a full Revit 3D model of the original stadium to aid in analysis and visualization. In addition, drawing from our expertise in New York City Building Code demolition requirements (many of which were added and revised shortly before the project began), we helped the team navigate the complicated NYC agency review and permitting process with the goal of obtaining the necessary permits.

Our role on the project includes performing on-site observations and providing the necessary engineering consulting during the deconstruction work. Our responsibilities include assisting the NYCEDC in analyzing the deconstruction process, and assessing the proper and timely execution of the ongoing work.

A public park with baseball fields, to be known as Heritage Field, will occupy the site of the original stadium, with references that will hark back to the significant history of those grounds.
