As part of a teaming agreement, Chris-Tel Construction provided over $3 million worth of work on the new JetBlue Park at Fenway South located in Fort Myers, Florida. The scope of work included historical restoration of the original manual scoreboard and installation on the Green Monster (a duplicate of the original at Fenway in Boston), installation of the Batter’s Eyes on the six practice fields, construction of the enclosed batting tunnels and open air batting tunnels and installation of the fencing and vinyl coated gates for the entire facility.
The team of Chris-Tel Construction was instrumental in the development and construction of JetBlue Park at Fenway South on a fast-tracked schedule. The Park had a non-negotiable completion deadline of 2012, in time to honor the Boston Red Sox 100th Anniversary and to accommodate the start of the Spring Training Season.
Site clearing commenced in July 2010 and continued through August 2010, while construction on the Boston Red Sox Spring Training and Player Development Complex was constructed simultaneously. The construction schedule was aggressive and required the horsepower of this multi-faceted company to accomplish the goals and milestones for this facility.
Additionally, JetBlue Park achieved LEED Certification from the USGBC, which allows the Boston Red Sox to demonstrate leadership, innovation, environmental stewardship, social responsibility and a focus on reducing operating costs.
Overall, the Organization was satisfied with the team at Chris-Tel Construction in their approach, commitment to the fast-track schedule, communication and collaboration that made this concept a reality. I fully recommend Chris-Tel Construction for the construction of your Athletic Facility.
