Contracted by the New York Yankees to provide project management services, Tishman Speyer Properties entrusted Turner to construct the new Yankee Stadium; a 14-acre site directly across the street from the original Yankee Stadium. The 635,000 square foot stadium has a seating capacity of 52,000 and more than 170,000 square feet of premium amenity spaces that includes: conference facilities, fine dining restaurants, 68 luxury suites, retail boutiques, executive and administrative offices. Completed 4-months ahead of schedule, Turner set a new standard in construction excellence by delivering a world-class environment that preserves the authenticity and energy of the original Yankee Stadium.
 
Key to the project’s success was Turner’s ability to employ Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) practices to safeguard the schedule and budget. The project marked the first time Turner applied Building Information Modeling (BIM) technologies on a project of this scale. The team generated 3D models of the steel frame, exterior wall and MEP systems well in advance of material fabrication. As a result, the team identified more than 10,000 clashes; subsequently developing a collaborative approach with the architect and engineer to resolve the issues while still maintaining the new stadium’s aesthetic. The stadium was christened by the New York Yankees in its inaugural year with a World Series win, as well as receiving New York Construction magazine’s Overall Project of the Year.

Yankee Stadium won McGraw Hill Publications “Project of the Year” Award for New York Construction in 2009.
