Thanks to B&D’s impressive work at Miller Park, Major League Baseball’s Chicago White Sox have called on the Milwaukee-based carpenters to replace their seats at U.S. Cellular Field on Chicago’s South side.
The new seats are a portion of the Phase Five renovations being made at the stadium. When U.S. Cellular purchased the naming rights for the former Comiskey Park in 2003, the stadium began to undergo numerous changes in an effort to make the park more fan-friendly.
In addition to replacing the seats, the ballpark has also received a new roof, scoreboard, center-field fan deck and paint job, among other changes. Also in store for 2005 in the Phase Five renovations is a 15,000-square-foot baseball and softball skills instruction area for kids and a 314-seat Scout Seating area behind home plate that B&D will also install.
B&D, in conjunction with American Seating Inc., will replace the entire contingent of blue seats at the stadium, beginning with the 2,140 seats at the club level and the Scout Seating area, along with the left-center field bleacher section, which were all complete prior to Opening Day of the 2005 season.
Following the 2005 season, B&D will begin work on replacing the 13,096 seats in the upper, Terrace Level. The final phase will be replacing the remaining 20,978 seats in the Field Level.
