Chase Field

WOODPATEL was the engineer-of-record for the Downtown Phoenix ballpark for the Arizona Diamondbacks major league baseball team. WOODPATEL services included preparation of on-site demolition, utility abandonment, project specifications, and construction documents for a sub-level field, multi-level seating area, state-of-the-art retractable domed stadium, parking, and plaza area designed to meet ADA standards. Unique to this project were mass excavation, ballfield drainage system, perimeter hardscape improvements, and sub-level drainage pump system. Our efficient design reduced the number of pumps required to pump stormwater into the storm drain system and stadium wash-down water into the sanitary sewer system. While working on this project, WOODPATEL was able to meet an incredibly fast-track schedule, requiring detailed, extensive coordination with the owner, architect, mechanical engineer, contractor, landscape architect, and utility companies. WOODPATEL prepared phased construction documents to meet this schedule, empowering the project to be bid out in increments.
