Parking and Sports Facilities at Yankee Stadium

  • ACEC NY - Diamond Award
  • ACEC National - Honor Award

As part of the new Yankee Stadium Development, three parking garage structures with roof-top parkland facilities were constructed as a design-build project. YU & Associates (YU) as a design team member was responsible for delivering all site/civil, geotechnical and environmental engineering services for these parking structures. These structures now provide more than 3,700 car parking spaces and roof-top sport/park facilities with track and field grandstand seats, a softball field, multiple basketball courts, and multiple handball courts.

Geotechnical and construction support services were performed for a subsurface investigation, foundation evaluation, and construction oversight. These presence of variable subsurface conditions and proximity to below grade and elevated subway structures required the planning and implementation of multiple types of pile foundations. Planned construction phasing, controlled inspections of earthwork, pile load test and installation were performed by YU for the duration of the project.

Environmental engineering services included site investigation, contaminated soil delineation and reporting. During construction, environmental site monitoring and soil disposal management work were performed. These included community air monitoring, waste classification and reuse and disposal facility evaluations as well as agency coordination. HazMat services involved asbestos and lead paint (ACM & LBP) investigation and abatement design.

Site Engineering included the site layout and grading design, utility connections and stormwater management designs, and regulatory permitting. Site engineering work also involved builder’s paving plans, a master sewer plan and the relocation of an existing major sewer.
