Thornton Tomasetti provided structural design services for the 40,000-seat ballpark on a tight Pittsburgh site on the banks of the Allegheny river. It features two main concourses, a suite and a club level with a four-story administration building and a two-story entertainment and scoreboard building in the outfield, as well as a promenade and players parking near the river.
Special features include two spiral pedestrian ramps, four circulation towers, five single mast 100-foot-tall light standards, press level at the upper deck, sunscreen, and an arcade. The project was completed in just 24 months.
