Blum Construction has been pleased to help Wake Forest University with expansions for many of its sports facilities, including the expansion for the Wake Forest University Baseball Clubhouse — a new clubhouse and other facilities for players. Crews excavated approximately 40,000 cubic yards of earth to make way for the two-story, 34,000-square-foot facility. The existing concession stand and about one third of the stadium’s bleachers were demolished. In order to accommodate the lower level of the building, which opens directly onto a new dugout near third base, the building pad has been lowered 24 feet and subsurface stabilization provided. Wake Forest’s new facilities are competitive with those of any collegiate baseball program in the country, helping the University recruit from among the best high school players.
