MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL OPENING SERIES

Moore Sports, the promoter of the 2014 Major League Baseball (MLB) Opening Series, engaged PPC to project manage and construction manage the significant bump-in and bump-out works to create an MLB standard facility at the iconic Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG).

PPC worked closely with the Major League Baseball representatives in the US to finalise the brief and design of the works prior to the Los Angeles Dodgers taking on the Arizona Diamondbacks at the SCG. This required cooperation with the SCG Trust and their head curator. PPC developed a positive and collaborative relationship with the SCG trust enabling the bump-in to be completed in 12 days and the bump-out in 7 days due to the unique nature of the works, which included;

  • 4,500sqm of turf removal
  • The procurement, installation and removal of infield clay from the US;
  • The installation of field of play fencing and padding;
  • The fit-out of team locker rooms;
  • The construction of dugout and bullpen construction as well as the backstop net and batting tunnel;

The procurement of contractors and suppliers was complex with PPC utilising both Australian and American organisations involving logistics and import procedures.

The event was hailed by the NSW Government as the most successful event since the 2000 Olympics!
