Engineered to Last -Fenway Park Turns One-Hundred

Jon Marcus, a writer for Product Lifecycle Stories, has just written an article on the preservation of one of the most famous sports venues in the world, Boston’s Fenway Park.  Jon tells an interesting story about recent preservation efforts at the stadium, and relates that at one time the iconic ballpark was threatened with demolition.  As with any structure of its age, there are many layers of history attached to the stadium.  It has undoubtedly been both a challenging and a rewarding aspect of the project to understand those layers and how they work together.  Among the sources for Jon’s article is Vertical Access partner Evan Kopelson.  Although Evan has never seen a baseball game at Fenway Park and is not involved with the current preservation effort, he definitely has an appreciation for the history of the structure and the work going into its preservation.
