Fifth Third Ball Park
A sign company was contracted to install an electronic sign at a minor league baseball park. An existing concrete pad was considered by the engineer to be insufficient for the additional loading which included compression loads and wind/overturn forces. The engineer calculated the requirements and designed four additional helical piers for each of the three concrete pads involved. Ground water conditions were challenging and the pad was not what the engineer understood it to be.A couple redesigns and the job was completed including all factors of safety prescribed. The sign company was pleased with the work, flexibility, and timeliness of the project.
