MOOSIC, PA — Alvin H. Butz, Inc. has been selected as Construction Manager to reconstruct and renovate Lackawanna County’s PNC Field in Moosic. Reconstruction activities include demolishing the ex- isting upper deck and re- building it to feature suite and club level seating. The lower section seating bowl will remain. Six concession stands, rest rooms, locker rooms and administrative ar- eas will be upgraded to ADA compliancy and state-of-the- art facilities. The renovations will include over 90,000 s/f of building space. Field reno- vations will consist of new dugouts, lighting, scoreboard, warning track and outfield. The renovated stadium will have a 10,000-fan capacity including tiered picnic areas, lawn seating, kids zone for families, and will feature a 360-degree walk around concourse. Design for the stadium is being done by Ew- ing Cole. The new stadium will be the home of AAA baseball
