Wrigley Field: The ultimate renovation project. With the main goal of preserving the beauty, charm and historic features of Wrigley Field that fans have cherished for more than a century,  Stantec took on the challenge of upgrading the amenities for the fans, vendors, operations staff, press, and players. Stantec’s project team included a unique blend of architects and engineers with experience working on historic facilities, stadiums and rehabilitation projects.  The Wrigley Field project included a creative dedication to maintaining the unique atmosphere of the ballpark for future generations.

This webinar will cover:

  • A Brief History of Wrigley Field from 1914 -  The original construction, alterations and additions

  • Project Goals and Scope:
    • Historic restoration and preservation – Defining the mid-1930s golden era of the ballpark
    • Program – New and improved spaces, amenities and features
    • Structural enabling – Making the ballpark compliant to modern structural requirements
    • Infrastructure – New HVAC, power, lighting, plumbing, and technology

  • Challenges:
    • Process – The vision, aligning budget and scope, government approvals
    • Phasing – One off-season at a time, post-season and opening day, temporary construction, embracing the final product
    • Winter conditions – The great unknown, not the best time to build in Chicago
    • Volume – Making the new infrastructure and program fit in a 100-year old volume
    • Details – Applying modern construction methods, codes, and function to history
  • Success – The vision begins to emerge, from poor conditions to the best, and the World Series
