Ballpark at Sulphur Dell Construction April 2014The Nashville Ballpark Project is well under way, with the majority of Excavation work completed. The field, dugouts, and basement areas are taking shape in the ground. The remaining portions of excavation in the outfield will take place after relocation of utility lines are completed by the end of May. During excavation, the contracted Ballpark Archaeologist found and mapped an Industrial area showing fire pits used for salt production in 1200 A.D. Field investigations were completed within 10 days and a full report will be provided in the coming weeks.

The Construction Management Team is currently drilling deep foundations (caissons) which will support the facility. This work is anticipated to take up to 8 weeks to complete. In the coming weeks you will see plumbing being laid and concrete being poured as the foundation begins to take shape. This project remains to be on schedule and is targeted to play ball in Spring 2015.
