Gilbane Interiors Group Boston has been hired by the Boston Red Sox to manage offseason renovations. The project, to be completed by opening day, includes the additional of a luxury suite along the left field line and a new section of rooftop level seating above.
The scope also includes a renovation of the center field Budweiser roof deck bar and concession stand, and the addition of a camera basket above the center field bleachers. In addition, there are renovations being made to the ground level center field concession stands and a historical remodel of the left field foul pole, AKA the “Carlton Fisk Pole.”
“The project demands an aggressive schedule, with all construction operations being completed before the Red Sox opening day on April 13,” noted Matt Haverty, director of Gilbane’s Boston Interiors Group. “There are several logistical challenges working safely through the bustle of the Fenway neighborhood while keeping the park fully operational during the peak season for historical tours.”
The new construction will add a total of 200 new seats to Fenway Park and is being considered the last major seating addition that will be undertaken in the park’s lifetime.
The architect designing this project is Somerville based D’Agostino Izzo Quirk Architects, Inc.
