The new stadium’s design, by HOK Sport, consists of two separate structures. The exterior is a wall circling the perimeter of the Yankees’ new property, and resembles the pre-renovation exterior of the original Yankee Stadium. The interior is a modern ballpark, with increased modern amenities that have become a staple of every new ballpark. The signature frieze, the lattice work that once rimmed the original stadium’s roof, adorns the new stadium’s roof.
The field’s dimensions are identical to those at the previous Yankee Stadium. The new stadium seats approximately 51,000 fans, with a total capacity of approximately 53,000 (including standing room), compared with 57,545 in the original Yankee Stadium. In addition, there are over 60 luxury boxes between the second level and the upper deck.
E-J’s scope included the fit-out of all lighting and power in the Left Field, Home Plate, and Right Field areas, as well as the Architectural lighting control system and the temporary lighting power systems for the entire project.

USTA NATIONAL TENNIS CENTER – LOUIS ARMSTRONG STADIUM
Louis Armstrong Stadium was the main venue of the US Open until 1997 when the new Arthur Ashe Stadium was completed. Originally named the Singer Bowl, Louis Armstrong Stadium was built in 1964 for the Worlds Fair.
As the final Phase of the USTA’s Redevelopment Project, Louis Armstrong Stadium underwent a major renovation and modernization in under 1 years time.
EJ’s scope of work included ALL electrical, communication, broadcast and technical systems within this facility. Electrically the entire existing electrical system was gutted from the service to final loads. A new service and distribution system was installed. Service and distribution equipment included 5kV, 277/480V and 120/208V equipment and wiring. Also installed was entire fit-out of public spaces within the stadium including extensive architectural lighting of the Great Hall. Also included was retail and concession space and a new ticket office.
Modernization of this decades old facility included installation of state-of-the-art broadcast cabling infrastructure to match the newly constructed Arthur Ashe Stadium. A modern data/voice infrastructure was also installed to handle the Ticket Office, Retail, Concession, Scoring and back office requirements. A new Broadband TV Distribution and Audio system was installed. All systems were integrated into the new existing campus systems, bringing the entire campus to the leading edge of technology.
All life safety systems were also installed at this time. With one month until the US Open the fire department required installation of a Fire Pump. Within this month EJ engineered and installed a complete service and hookup of this fire pump.
