US Cellular Field (Chicago White Sox), Chicago, IL
In 1988, the Chicago White Sox owners entered into a lease agreement with the Illinois Sports Facility Authority (ISFA) for Comiskey Park (now U.S. Cellular Field). To ensure the quality that the stadium agreed to in its lease with ISFA, the White Sox organization retained representation, led by Vincent P. Ziolkowski, AIA while at Stein and Company, to oversee its interests in the project.
Services included review of all construction documents, monitoring construction activities and advising on construction issues affecting the White Sox' interests. As an adjunct to the design/construction team, Ziolkowski helped reduce the stadium's cost by more than $10 million through value engineering and provided on-going construction observation to protect the client's financial position. Additionally, by monitoring the terms of the management agreement between the Sox and the ISFA, Ziolkowski helped to keep the project within budget. The stadium includes 114 private suites, 20 concession stands, 12 commissaries, a bi-level restaurant/bar and 20,000 square feet of administrative offices.
