Alvin H. Butz, Inc. to Renovate PNC Field in Lackawanna County
Allentown, PA, May 4, 2012 . . . Alvin H. Butz, Inc. has been selected as Construction Manager to reconstruct and renovate Lackawanna County's PNC Field in Moosic, PA.
Reconstruction activities include demolishing the existing upper deck and rebuilding it to feature suite and club level seating. The lower section seating bowl will remain. Six concession stands, restrooms, locker rooms and administrative areas will be upgraded to ADA compliancy and state-of-the-art facilities. The renovations will include over 90,000 square feet of building space. Field renovations will consist of new dugouts, lighting, scoreboard, warning track and outfield. The renovated stadium will have a 10,000-fan capacity including tiered picnic areas, lawn seating, kids zone for families, and will feature a 360-degree walk around concourse. Design for the stadium is being done by Ewing Cole.
The new stadium will be the home of AAA baseball team the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees. The team is playing its entire 2012 schedule away from home using other stadiums until the reconstruction is complete. Construction services are scheduled to begin this week. The project needs to follow an extremely aggressive schedule in order to be completed by March 2013 to allow the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees to resume their International League schedule locally in April 2013.
"We are really excited to begin work on this project," said Greg Butz, President and CEO of Alvin H. Butz, Inc. "We have an extremely talented project team in place and they are fully dedicated to completing the stadium with the highest quality while maintaining the schedule."
In March 2008, Alvin H. Butz, Inc. completed the minor league baseball stadium, Coca-Cola Park in Allentown, PA, home of the Lehigh Valley IronPigs, the AAA affiliate of the Philadelphia Phillies.
