With the start of the baseball season it is only right that we feature the all new Atlanta Braves spring training facility.
It’s hard to believe from looking at the pictures, but this project was built on a former cow pasture. March 24th was opening day. Thousands of people came to see the Braves beat the Tampa Bay Rays. The Atlanta Braves Spring Training Facility, known as CoolToday Park, is the first new baseball complex in the region since JetBlue Park was built in 2012 for the Boston Red Sox in Fort Myers.
This project includes a stadium with a seating capacity of 6,200 seats and 1,000 berm seating. In addition it includes six full and two half practice fields, an agility field, a state-of-the art clubhouse consisting of approximately 55,000 square feet and additional amenities such as batting cages, covered observation tower, pitching mounds, parking facilities, and a public plaza.
Trident partnered with Tandem Construction and Barton Malow to help complete this job. We were responsible for the beautiful clubhouse and covered observation tower.
Both of our contributions took over 248,000lbs of steel to complete.
