Washington Nationals Baseball Stadium

In 2006, final approvals were received for the construction of a more than $611 million publicly financed 41,000-seat baseball stadium to allow the former Expos (now the Nationals) to move to DC. As part of a joint venture for engineering and construction services, JVP Engineers provided Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing services as the Engineers of Record.

The Nationals Park has become the first major stadium in the United States to receive a LEED Silver Certification from the US Green Building Council, by saving millions of gallons of water using efficient field lighting, adding a green roof, incorporating recycling at the ballpark, and by paying particular attention to issues affecting the health of the Anacostia River, such as stormwater management and minimization of water pollution.

JVP successfully provided engineering design services for the implementation of:

  • Energy Modeling/Analysis
  • Mechanical and plumbing equipment (trane chillers, air handling units (AHUs), roof top units (RTUs), VAV systems, pump and motor starters) and power
  • Concession/kitchen equipment and power, sports lighting, signage and scoreboard power, lighting and mechanical/plumbing equipment for offices, suites, lounges, restaurants and bars
  • Power and lighting for hydrotherapy, steam and exercise areas; power, lighting and mechanical/plumbing equipment for the washing machines and dryers
  • Emergency generator system for Life Safety and standby lighting and power loads
  • Single line diagram for 13.2kV/5kV/480/208V power system including underground services; high/medium/low voltage equipment (transformers, unit substations, switchgears, switchboards, panelboards etc) power
  • Microlite/musco make lighting control system including dimming

JVP Engineers has also provided ongoing support to the Nationals Stadium, including renovating existing team stores to accommodate new vendors for the team apparel in 2011. The scope of services included mechanical and electrical modifications for various stores located on the grounds of the Nationals Baseball Stadium, including the main team store on the north side of the stadium, the smaller team store on the south side of the stadium and one concession stand converted into a team store.

In 2013, JVP was tasked with providing mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection design services for the conversion of the 300 Level Vendor Commissary to a Concession Kitchen: JVP’s involvements included the design for a new grease exhaust hood, exhaust fan and exhaust duct, as well as, the modifications to the existing electrical system within the space to accommodate the new equipment.
