SunTrust Park Awarded to Hirschfeld Industries
American Builders 2017, a joint venture between Brasfield & Gorrie, Mortenson Construction, Barton Malow Company and New South Construction, named Hirschfeld Industries as Prime Steel Contractor for the SunTrust Park. The new home of the Braves is named for Atlanta-based SunTrust Banks, and is developed by the Braves in partnership with Cobb-Marietta Coliseum and Exhibit Hall Authority. This project will be completed by Opening Day 2017.
Designed by sports specialist architectural firm Populous, SunTrust Park will seat 41,500 with a unique configuration that brings fans closer to the field and maximizes sightlines. The 8,000 ton steel-framed structure, engineered by Walter P Moore, features a 90 foot canopy with architectural panel roof cladding, a closely integrated concrete and steel seating bowl frame to accommodate a demanding construction schedule, a 900 ton Admin Building, and numerous ancillary structures outside of the seating bowl.
