University of Berkeley- Baseball Stadium Backstop & Netting

Client: UC Berkeley

Location: Frank Schlessinger Way. Berkely, CA 94720

Netting Type: Backstop & Safety Netting

Duration: 2 weeks

Spectator Experience and Safety

At Judge Netting, we are proud to have completed a significant upgrade to the baseball stadium at the prestigious University of California, Berkeley. Our project involved the removal of an old, multi-pole backstop and the installation of a new, state-of-the-art tie-back backstop system. This upgrade was meticulously designed to enhance the viewing experience for spectators and improve visibility for TV cameras, revolutionizing how fans and audiences engage with the game.

Innovative Design and Enhanced Safety

In addition to the backstop upgrade, we installed protective netting barriers along the left and right fields, seamlessly integrating them with the new backstop. This addition was critical in enhancing safety for the players and spectators, ensuring that everyone can enjoy the game without concern.

Navigating Challenges with Expertise

One of the major challenges we faced during this project was the limited and tight access for equipment. However, with our experience and expertise, we overcame this obstacle by utilizing precise and compact equipment. Our team worked diligently to ensure the project was completed in a timely manner, avoiding any disruption to the baseball season.

A key aspect of our success in this project was the close collaboration with UC Berkeley staff. Prior to the commencement of work, we conducted a detailed site visit, which allowed us to plan effectively and ensure that our designs and solutions were perfectly tailored to the specific needs and constraints of the stadium.
