The new, multi-purpose stadium will be built on a vacant parcel of land in Worcester’s Canal District and accommodate nearly 10,000 fans when it officially opens in time for the 2021 baseball season. Gilbane-Hunt, a joint venture, was selected as the builder of choice for this project in no small part due to their combined experience building Triple-A and Major League ballparks throughout the country, including Boston’s iconic Fenway Park.

Designed by D’Agostino Izzo Quirk Architects, in conjunction with famed ballpark designer Janet Marie Smith, the stadium will incorporate some aspects of Fenway Park as well as elements that evoke Worcester’s unique culture, including a small museum paying homage to the city’s rich history of baseball. However, the new stadium will also be reminiscent of the Pawtucket Red Sox’s McCoy Stadium and include a lower left field area with bleachers and a grassy knoll for families to sit and enjoy a game.

This is our largest site contract awarded to date. It has been a collaborative effort by our Estimating Team including Dennis Vandi and Kevin Hitchko.

Leading the WLF team will be Project Manager Jim Ganiatsos and Project Superintendent Jeff Emerson. Mike Rock will be the Soil Project Manager handling the disposal of 118,000 tons of soil. Our work begins on Monday and will be substantially complete by August 2020.
