Ed Smith Stadium Renovations
The Baltimore Orioles were remodeling! GRAEF performed MEP renovations and new additions to an existing stadium for use by the Major League Baseball Baltimore Orioles for their Spring Training Facility. The newly renovated Ed Smith Stadium includes a party deck, sun shading and private suites along with its existing concessions, press boxes, restroom facilities, Team Store and ticket centers. GRAEF performed all mechanical, electrical and plumbing engineering for this state of the art stadium using green building practices, with an emphasis on energy conservation and sustainability.
The ballpark walls were extended toward the street, giving the facility an indoor concourse and a second-floor facade features additional concessions and bathrooms. The new structure also has a roof extension and a wrap-around apron to address frequent complaints that the stadium doesn’t have enough shaded areas. Outfield areas have been improved with a left field picnic area and a bullpen to be constructed down the right field line. Other changes include the installation of 7,100 seats recycled from Oriole Park at Camden Yards.
