New Stadium

28 March 11:38 am

Another monumental in Earthquakes history happened today as we placed our final steel beam at the New Stadium construction site.

Once again, the most tech savvy president in MLS gives us a first-hand view of the New Stadium Steel Topping Out Ceremony through social media. 

Isn't she pretty?

 

All set. 

 

Best fans in MLS made their mark: 

 

Ever wondered why there was a Christmas Tree on top of the beam? Now you know:

It's all coming together at the new stadium site. 

Schuff Steel installed the first beams for the team and office building, and none other than newly-minted head coach Mark Watson, Quakes President Dave Kaval and GM John Doyle signed the first cross beam.

We visited the new stadium construction site with Quakes prez Dave Kaval the other day, and it turns out there is a lot more excavating to be done than we originally thought. Just check out the photos below. 

The old FMC building foundation wall: 

One of three concrete bunkers found on the site. It wasn't an easy task for the construction crew to rip these suckers out. 

 

The trouble with digging below the water line. You run into water. A lot of it. 

Kaval inspecting the ground water: 

Get a first hand look at these giant concrete pillars (at least 100 of them) found on site. Check out Kaval's vine

These giant metal objects weren't easy to pull out of the ground either:

Know an MLS President who uses Vine more than @QuakesPrez? Didn't think so. Dave Kaval visited the new stadium site today and Vine'd his way through the new construction.

There has been a lot of heavy lifting at the new stadium site these past few weeks. 

As Quakes' President Kaval noted in his update, the construction crew has been working hard to dig up the deep foundation from the old FMC site. 

Just check out the photos below:

How much paperwork goes into building a stadium? Enough that you need a dolly to drag it all into City Hall.

Club president Dave Kaval did just that on Wednesday, offering up a few trees worth of building documents for the City of San Jose to peruse over the coming weeks.

In the meantime, prep work continues at the site.

How far will fans be from the field when the San Jose Earthquakes open their new stadium? Quite simply, not far.

Here's a comparitve look at the rakes of various venues from around the league:

Stadium construction has officially begun (see photographic evidence below).

20 February 11:14 am

The first permits for construction on the new stadium site have been approved and fans can expect to see prep work at 1125 Coleman Ave. as early as next week. The group handling the site prep is Campanella in conjunction with the project's general contractor, Devcon Construction.

Per the club's initial timeline, site prep wasn't scheduled to begin until Thursday, Feb. 28, but club president Dave Kaval confirmed that fans could see action on the site as early as Monday. Construction equipment is now on site.
