Citi Field was built as a replacement for Shea Stadium, home of the New York Mets.
AECOM Hunt, in a joint venture, provided both pre-construction and construction services, employing a combination of fast-track and conventional procurement methods to deliver this major project.
The $600 million, 1.2 MSF open-air baseball stadium features five floors, 54 luxury suites, four restaurants and a total capacity of 41,800. The stadium has a structural steel frame with cast-in-place concrete shear walls and slab-on-deck construction. Features include a contoured seating configuration to bring fans closer to the field on all levels and wider concourses designed for easier access, while providing a 360-degree view of the field.
Several key trades were identified early in the procurement process and were bid utilizing a design-assist approach.
