Rogers Stadium Limited Partnership awarded the first phase of the Rogers Centre’s $300 million renovation to PCL Constructors Canada Inc. last month, and work is now well underway this off-season before the stadium opens for the 2023 season in April.

Rogers Centre was conceptualized as a multi-purpose stadium when it opened in 1989 and has not undergone a large-scale renovation in its 33-year history. The project will address the most important challenges with the current stadium, while not rushing the necessary long-term work needed to maintain the ballpark for future generations of fans.

To meet the fast-track schedule, work is being sequenced in two shifts over a six-day work week. Demolition to bring portions of the stadium back to base is already nearing completion, enabling next steps.

A few highlights of the work are as follows:

New build

“PCL and our partners are passionate about bringing the Toronto Blue Jays’ reimagined vision for Rogers Centre to life,” says Monique Buckberger, vice president and district manager, PCL Toronto. “Following months of preconstruction planning, our team hit the ground running on the first phase of renovations to give the home of Canada’s Major League Baseball team a new look for the 2023 Home Opener.”
