Construction Progress – 9/29/10

The construction of the New Marlins Ballpark hit an exciting milestone as the east retractable roof truss panel that had been sitting on the shoring towers was moved from the west side of the project to the area just behind second base. This will allow the construction team to begin the assembly of the second roof truss panel that will eventually be located on the west side of the operable roof. The retractable roof is made up of three panels (East, Center and West) that will move independent of each other or in tandem. In other developments, the concrete superstructure was completed in the last week and the precast concrete that will support the ballpark seats is nearing completion.  A total of four set of stairs, two ramps and four escalators located behind home plate have already been installed.  The foundations for the two north garages is now 100% complete and the casting bed is now in place to allow the Construction Manager to make significant progress.
