SunTrust Park Billboard
When the Atlanta Braves moved from Turner Field to SunTrust Park in Cobb County in 2017, we were delighted to take part in the final phase of construction. On February 10th, 2017, J-Mar Craneworks requested two of our Linkbelt ATC 3275’s to assist in lifting the new billboard at Circle 75 Parkway and Harodian Way, visible from I-75 South.
On March 8, 2017, construction camera provider OxBlue released a time-lapse video of SunTrust Park’s construction. The high-definition time-lapse movie was produced using over 203,000 images taken by three cameras over a 21-month period.
The Braves received the certificate of occupancy for the entire ballpark on February 24, 2017. With seats, video boards and most other elements already installed, the sod was one of the last missing pieces of the new ballpark. Workers began the installation of 109,000 square feet of sod on March 4, 2017, a task that took two to three days to complete. The first game in the new park was held on Friday, April 14th, 2017 and was met with enthusiasm. Photos of the festivities can be viewed HERE.
