Regions Field

Birmingham, Alabama

Parkside Baseball, located south of Railroad Park in the heart of downtown Birmingham, comprises a four-block area formerly occupied by numerous industrial and light manufacturing facilities dating back to the early 20th Century. The City of Birmingham awarded the environmental assessment and cleanup contract to Bullock in October 2011 and Bullock personnel immediately began work on Phase I and Phase II ESAs on each parcel of the four-block area. Following a full evaluation of site conditions, Bullock, working with the design and development team implemented a remedial strategy targeting various source areas adjacent to and beneath the proposed baseball park development. The strategy included two primary components: source removal and treatment of groundwater discharged from the facility dewatering system (required as a a result of the playing surface being approximately five to six feet lower than the average water table elevation). Source removal activities were completed in September 2012 and included the excavation and disposal of more than 6,000 tons of regulated material and the closure of six underground storage tanks. The City received regulatory approval of cleanup efforts in November 2012. The park dewatering system was permitted in February 2013 and the park scheduled to open for its first game on April 10, 2013.
