Project Location Information:
Minute Maid Park, previously known as The Ballpark at Union Station, Enron Field, and Astros Field, is a ballpark in Downtown Houston, Texas, United States, that opened in 2000 to house the Houston Astros of Major League Baseball (MLB). The ballpark is Houston's first retractable-roofed stadium, and features a natural grass playing field. The ballpark was built as a replacement of the Astrodome, the first domed sports stadium ever built, which opened in 1965. It is named for beverage brand Minute Maid, a subsidiary of The Coca-Cola Company, which acquired naming rights in 2002 for $100 million over 30 years. As of 2016, Minute Maid Park has a seating capacity of 41,676, which includes 5,197 club seats and 63 luxury suites.

The largest entrance to the park is inside what was once Houston's Union Station, and the left-field side of the stadium features a railway as homage to the site's history. The train moves along a track on top of the length of the exterior wall beyond left field whenever an Astros player hits a home run and/or the Astros win a game. The engine's coal car is filled with giant oranges in reference to Minute Maid's most famous product, orange juice.

Several small renovations have occurred at the stadium. ParkUSA has provided several grease interceptors of various types to the Astros’ stadium both during the initial construction and renovations.

Project Location Information:
Texas A&M University transitioned to the South Eastern Conference in 2012 and called for request a major renovation of Kyle Field. The former stadium did not fulfil the university’s needs in capacity for football games and updates were required for many decks. The new seating capacity will be 102,512 – the largest stadium in the SEC. The renovations were done in phases to allow the football games to continue and will be completed in full by the 2015 season.

Major aspects of the renovations include replacing the entire west stands and press box, the first deck of the east side, and the Netum Steed Conditioning Laboratory. Additions to Kyle Field include a complete south end zone with lower and upper decks for seating.

Outside of Kyle Field, there will be construction of a widened tree-lined walkway and concourse area. 

With this much construction and building many environmental challenges incorporating water needed to be addressed. Park was able to accommodate many of these issues with different products from our line. ParkUSA provided several products for this project, including an Oil Trooper and several Grease Troopers.
