Boston – New for the 2016 opening season, AHA Consulting Engineers, along with D’Agostino Izzo Quirk (D’AIQ) Architects and Gilbane, worked to create 222 more seats in Fenway Park’s right-field pavilion seating area, located to the right of the Cumberland sign and below a stadium light fixture. AHA provided plumbing and electrical engineering design for this additional seating area.

For the 2015 season, AHA, D’AIQ Architects, and Gilbane Building Company added a 36-person suite, known as the Infiniti Suite. This suite is fully furnished, has a kitchenette, bathroom, and indoor/outdoor seating areas. AHA provided mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire alarms for this addition.

Also created in 2015 and just outside the Infiniti Suite is Fenway Farms, a roof-top garden, started by Linda Henry, Red Sox Team owner, John Henry’s wife. Although relatively small in size, this garden produces lettuce, tomatoes, kale, broccoli, carrots, peppers, beans, cucumbers, eggplant, radishes, and herbs which are used in the concession areas within Fenway Park and the restaurant in the EMC Club. Recover Green Roofs from Somerville installed the planters and irrigation system, and Green City Growers, also of Somerville, planted and continue to maintain this roof-top garden.

What else has changed at Fenway Park since the major, 10-year, $285 million renovations and restorations period ended in 2011? The short answer is, “a lot.” Keeping America’s favorite ballpark in pristine condition and able to accommodate growing numbers of fans and spectators every year is no small task. AHA Consulting Engineers has been assisting on the Fenway Park renovations and expansions since 2009. Some of these post-major-renovation projects include adding the Royal Rooters visitors’ clubhouse and restrooms, right-field roof and monster corner expansions, first-base deck concessions, third-base deck bar and concession area, media and press level renovations, and visitor and home team locker rooms.
