Salt River Fields at Talking Stick (Scottsdale, AZ)Challenges: Arizona: where baseball is king, and the sun and heat are relentless. In fact, according to Dave Dunne, owner representative, During construction of the most beautiful ballpark in the nation, Phoenix experienced one of its most brutal summers, underscored by history-making sandstorms. And the projects quick turnaround was just as relentless.
Solution: The signature feature and reason so many fans said they will be returning to the Salt River Fields Stadium next season is its uniquely designed roof. It features two overlapping decks behind home plate that are positioned so that 85% of all fans in the grandstand are shaded during the course of the afternoon.
A light gray JM PVC membrane was specified to reduce potential glare on passers-by from a too bright surface. HKSs architects worked closely with Johns Manvilles Technical Services team in Denver to develop the parapet flashing system, resulting in a custom color around the stadium clubhouse. Light stands and towers were particularly challenging, and, again, JMs Denver group teamed with the designers for a solution that would keep the roof structure watertight and be in compliance with detail drawings.
The project was awarded the U. S. Green Building Councils LEED Gold designation the first LEED-certified Spring Training facility.
