Project Profile: DuPont™ Tyvek® CommercialWrap® Covers All the Bases in St. Louis Ballpark Village
THE GOAL: Spanning seven city blocks on the 10-acre site just north of Busch Stadium—home of the 11-time World Series Champion Cardinals—the St. Louis Ballpark Village is the country's first fully-integrated mixed-use development, designed to deliver the excitement and energy of the game day experience to a new neighborhood outside the stadium walls.
THE CHALLENGE: St. Louis, straddles two climates. It is subject to both cold arctic air and hot, humid tropical air from the Gulf of Mexico. With an average of 48 days of thunderstorms and 41 inches of precipitation per year, along with hot, humid summers and wintry rain, St. Louis has more than its share of severe weather which requires a high-performing weather barrier system.
THE SOLUTION: The construction team specified an air and water barrier system that includes DuPont™ Tyvek® CommercialWrap® to help ensure a sealed, protective building envelope. In addition to the many benefits of the product itself, the team cited the support of the local DuPont™ Tyvek® Specialist who provided technical support for the project in the form of field observations, pre-construction meetings, and attendance at mock-up evaluations.
