Primera partnered with Adams Craig Acquisitions on every facet of the hardscape interior design of this project. From the initial consultation and throughout the design process, Primera identified the key elements important to Adams Craig and suggest products that would come together to create not only a beautiful home but one that is inline with their sustainable vision. Take a view at this unique project.
Cubs park – The building work is complete and the first game awaits
The ribbon has been cut, the Park dedicated and today, February 27, the inaugural baseball game will be played at the newly named Cubs Park Spring training stadium in Mesa – the Chicago Cubs vs Arizona Diamondbacks. The recently completed state-of-the-art ballpark consists of a two-story player development facility and a rebuilt and enhanced Riverview Park on a 146-acre site.
The new ballpark’s seating capacity of 15,000 is the largest in the Cactus League. Cubs fans will notice a few features reminiscent of Wrigley Field, the Cubs home stadium in Chicago, including the brick wall behind home plate, green scoreboard with the Wrigley Field-style clock, arched steel work on the light standards and cantilevered roofs. Wrigley Field, which was built in 1914, will be playing host to Major League Baseball for the 100th season in 2014 — and to the Cubs for the 98th year.
The new Spring Training facility was built in just 15 months by Hunt Construction Group. Primera is proud to have been part of this prestigious project, having installed 30,000 square feet of floor and wall tile throughout the facility, including the player development center, clubhouse, player locker rooms and maintenance building.
Cubs players will be introduced to a new player development center which will feature a two-story weight and cardiovascular facility, hydrotherapy room, a 120-seat theater, family waiting room and cafeteria. The major league clubhouse features a football-shaped locker room with 68 lockers and a lounge area, while the minor league clubhouse features 206 lockers to accommodate players training year-round.
In addition to the player development center, the training facility includes 12 covered batting tunnels and two groups of 12-mound bullpens, six full-size practice fields and one half-size field for infield practice, as well as other specialized training areas.
