Cardinals Hunt Down Construction Group For New Ballpark
Published December 2, 2002
The MLB Cardinals named Indianapolis-based Hunt Construction Group (HCG) as the lead designer/builder for the team's new $402M ballpark in St. Louis (Cardinals). In St. Louis, Doug Moore noted that HCG "was selected over three other contractors none based in St. Louis." Cardinals President Mark Lamping said that "much of the work would be subcontracted, paving the way for St. Louis companies to participate in construction of the new stadium." John Loyd who the Cardinals hired to manage construction of the new ballpark said that the Cardinals selected HCG "because of the company's experience in ballpark construction." Loyd worked with HCG when he was overseeing construction of Jacobs Field (POST-DISPATCH, 11/28).
