SARASOTA — Fawley Bryant Architecture has completed the design and build of a 9,307-square-foot batting tunnel for the St. Louis Cardinals at Roger Dean Stadium in Jupiter.
The project served as a catalyst for upcoming improvements, additions and renovations to the Cardinals’ spring training complex that will also be led by the Sarasota/Bradenton firm, according to a press release.
“Many organizations recommended the team at Fawley Bryant," says Dan Good, VP of business development for the St. Louis Cardinals baseball organization, in the statement. "As soon as we started working together, it was evident why. Their knowledge during planning and programming was crucial, and their 3D visualization tools helped ensure clear communication. Their support didn’t stop at design; it continued through permit documents, construction administration, and closeout.”
The collaboration is the latest addition to Fawley Bryant’s sports portfolio, which includes projects with the Atlanta Braves, Pittsburgh Pirates and Miami Marlins baseball teams along with Gatorade, Under Armour, PBR Sports Performance, IMG Academy, Prince Tennis and Binghamton University.
The batting tunnel project included building three batting tunnels and an adjacent structure to house restrooms, storage, a cart wash area, water and ice dispensary, and an A/V room for video coaching, the release states.
“We are proud to play a part in helping the St. Louis Cardinals compete at their highest level,” says Steve Padgett, principal and managing partner of Fawley Bryant Architecture, in the statement. “We worked closely with the organization and our partners to create a best-in-class, optimal training environment for the players and coaches to thrive.”
Fawley Bryant serves clients throughout Southwest Florida. It has offices in Sarasota and Bradenton. The firm reported $5.94 million in gross revenue in 2019.
