Citi Field – The New Mets Stadium
Citi Field, the new home of the New York Mets, sits atop one of the most challenging subsurface conditions in the New York metropolitan area. The Flushing Meadows site is underlain with deep deposits of soft clay and silt. These soils make high-capacity foundations a particularly challenging design feat. MRCE performed a comprehensive geotechnical investigation including a site specific seismic analysis, to design driven pile foundations reducing uncertainty and yielding a cost-effective foundations.
A coordinated team effort on the part of the architect, geotechnical engineer, structural engineer, and construction manager produced an extraordinary stadium that was ready for the Mets’ 2009 home opening game.
