Community Maritime Park Stadium

Pensacola, Florida

117,000 sf 5,270 seat multi-use stadium. Construction includes precast concrete bowl seating, steel framed elevated slabs, post-tensioned slabs-on-grade and an auger cast pile foundation with concrete grade beams and pile caps. This project was custom designed to meet the needs of the client for the use by a minor league baseball team as well as for accommodating other sporting and festival type events. The structure and slab-on-grade was pile supported due to poor soil conditions and concern over scour from hurricanes. Due to the acquisition of a AA Baseball Team, during steel fabrication and construction of the foundation, enhancements to the stadium were added to the project scope. JDA worked diligently to adjust the structure while using newly constructed elements within the enhancements and also providing subcontractors information need to keep construction moving forward without incurring additional mobilization fees. Estimated Construction Cost: $18.5 million
