WORCESTER – Gilbane-Hunt, a Joint Venture, will be offered the contract as the Construction Manager for the Polar Park project — the future home of the Triple-A affiliate of the Boston Red Sox.

According to the City of Worcester, the Selection Committee for Polar Park made the recommendation of Gilbane-Hunt to the Worcester Redevelopment Authority (WRA), who will vote on the recommendation at their next meeting on Tuesday, March 19 at 8 AM.

“With the addition of Gilbane-Hunt as Construction Manager, we’ve assembled the final piece of our All Star Team that will bring Polar Park to life in April 2021,” said City Manager Edward M. Augustus Jr. “Their impressive resume of work both nationally, and locally here in Worcester, really speaks for itself. I extend my sincere thanks to the Selection Committee as well as the Worcester Red Sox for their work in evaluating the proposals.”

The Gilbane-Hunt partnership has completed high-profile projects in the past — including the Connecticut Convention Center and Rentschler Field, home of the University of Connecticut Huskies.

The Worcester Red Sox offered the following statement regarding the decision: “Although the Worcester Red Sox are not voting members of the Selection Committee, members of our front office sat through all five candidates’ exceptional presentations. We support the Committee’s recommendation and look forward to working with the Gilbane-Hunt team, which has both deep experience in sports and baseball and substantial local ties.”

Polar Park is scheduled to open in Worcester’s Canal District in April 2021. A groundbreaking for the project is expected in July 2019.
