Citi Field is a stadium located in Flushing Meadows–Corona Park in the New York City borough of Queens. Completed in 2009, it is the home baseball park of Major League Baseball's New York Mets. Citi Field was built as a replacement for the adjacent Shea Stadium, which opened in 1964 next to the site of the 1964–1965 World's Fair. Citi Field was designed by Populous (formerly HOK Sport), and is named after Citigroup, a New York financial services company which purchased the naming rights. The $850 million baseball park was funded by the sale of New York City municipal bonds which are to be repaid by the Mets plus interest.
The project was performed as a joint venture effort between Cardoza Plumbing Corporation
and Paramount Plumbing Corporation due to its enormous size and aggressive completion
The project consisted of completely new plumbing systems with new source equipment such as Domestic Suction Tank, Quad Domestic Boosters Pumps, High/Low Zone Hot water Heaters and Filtration Systems in addition to miles of new distribution piping serving the Gang Toilet Rooms, Concession Areas and VIP/CIub Dining Areas within the entire Stadium.
The challenging areas of work arose in the installation of storm drainage piping due to the enormous heights and angles to access certain areas where drains were placed in the upper decks and around the stadium.
The project was completed on time and without incident.
