Major infrastructure upgrades contribute to exceptional fan experience for MLB team
San Diego, CA, May 28, 2019 – Building upon its existing relationship with the San Diego Padres, BNBuilders recently completed the Compass Premier Club and VIP Patio Suite renovation at Petco Park. Designed by Carrier Johnson + CULTURE, the $2 million renovations were completed during the off season to be ready for Opening Day on March 26. BNBuilders also built the San Diego Padres Hall of Fame in 2017, a ballpark feature which has quickly become a favorite for local and visiting fans. The Compass Premier Club renovations demonstrate the Padres’ continued commitment to delivering an exceptional experience to fans of San Diego’s MLB team.
The Compass Premier Club renovations included demolition and reconstruction of the 7,500-square-foot space with upgrades to the arrival vestibule, bar area including wood and tile, and 36 new VIP loge seats. Now complete, the Club features an open floorplan with expansive views of the park. Emphasizing the Padres’ strong regional connections, the Club was complemented by locally-resourced custom materials, adding unique character to the space.
Manuela Bravo-Smith, Sr. Associate with Carrier Johnson + CULTURE, states, “The design concept was developed in close collaboration with the Padres team to provide their members a space that embraces the love for the sport in a relaxed yet classic environment. We were delighted to work with many ‘behind-the-scenes’ members of the very dynamic and complex Padres organization, who all contributed to bringing this project to life.”
Jamie Awford, Principal at BNBuilders, states, “The Padres and Carrier Johnson were knowledgeable, proactive, and collaborative partners in helping make this exciting space a reality. We are thrilled to play our part in continuing to make America’s favorite pastime a memorable experience which enhances community connections and enriches lives.”
