Reno Aces Ballpark & Freight House District
Submitted by Devcon Construction, Inc.
Breathing new life into an abandoned area of downtown while providing a new home for the minor league Reno Aces, this project is centered around a baseball stadium with seating for 9,100 fans, with 22 luxury boxes stretching from first to third base, a sublevel baseball clubhouse and training facility. The downtown entertainment district accompanies the stadium with indoor restaurants and bars plus an outdoor space sheltered by a 38-ft-tall canopy featuring bars, a stage and roof-top deck overlooking the action on the ball field.
Built in two stages, the project required soil remediation, demolition and 40,000 cu yds of excavation on a very tight site with nearly 150 years of building history. The well-coordinated team broke the project up into 25 different bid packages and drawing sets, to ensure material lead times and an on-time, under-budget final product.
