Hillsboro, OR. (June 22, 2022) - The City of Hillsboro (ballpark owner) has contracted a design-builder, Mortenson, along with SRG Partnership and Populous to expand Ron Tonkin Field to meet the new Major League Baseball (MLB) standards for a High-A Long Season ballpark. Mortenson and Populous have designed and built a long list of noteworthy sports and stadium projects, including Climate Pledge Arena in Seattle and Target Field for the Minnesota Twins. The project begins later this year.
“We received proposals from four design-build teams from across the country. The Mortenson/SRG/Populous team stood out because of their very personal, right-sized, and community-oriented approach to this project,” said Sean Morrison, Senior Project Manager. “Another important factor was their tried-and-true approach to DEI and support and development programs for COBID subcontractors. We feel this will create real opportunity for those businesses in our community”
“Mortenson, SRG and Populous share our vision for turning Ron Tonkin Field into a world-class, multi-purpose venue that will host Hops baseball, concerts, and festivals year-round” said K.L. Wombacher, Hillsboro Hops President and General Manager.
The Mortenson team will work with the Hillsboro Hops organization and the City of Hillsboro to modernize, complete, and expand home team, visitors’ and coaching/umpire staff facilities and make needed upgrades to the onsite infrastructure to ensure compliance with recently upgraded MLB facility standards.
“The entire team is delighted to have been selected for this important, high-profile project,” said Dan Mehls, vice president and general manager of Mortenson. “Our experience building community and sports projects is a great source of pride and we are excited to be playing a part in the transformation of the field for Hillsboro Hops right here in our backyard. Go Hops!”
SRG and Populous are also leading the transformation of Reser Stadium at Oregon State University.
