The Phillies New Ballpark Built By Carson Concrete

Over the past 35 years, Carson Concrete has finished over 800 jobs, placing millions of yards of concrete and more than 30 million square feet of formwork. Founded by Anthony Samango, Jr., Carson Concrete built the tallest building at the time in several cities, including Liberty One in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Main Street Center in Richmond, Virginia; and Merritt Towers in Baltimore, Maryland.

One of the company’s most impressive accomplishments is constructing a new ballpark for the Philadelphia Phillies. The 22-acre site required the placing of more than 60,000 cubic yards of concrete. The project required two and a half miles of 20-foot walls, 200,000 square feet of 20-foot-high concrete decks, and a two-foot-thick slab on grade that is 300,000 square feet in size.

Located on Pattison Avenue between Citizens Bank Way and Darien Street, the world-class ballpark opened on April 3, 2004. The first game featured the Phillies against the Cleveland Indians in an exhibition game. Since then, the Phillies have won a World Series title and two National League pennants.
