The Stanley Cup pays a visit to the Penguins’ future home
The crew hard at work on the new Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh, PA, couldn’t believe their eyes on July 9 when they saw the Penguins arrive at the site of their future home. Not only that! The Pens brought the Stanley Cup with them, much to the delight of the many hockey fans out there. It was a thrill for the construction crew to see the legendary trophy up close and even touch it!
The construction crew happily gathered around The Cup to pose for pictures.
Peter Murphy, project manager for Structal-Heavy Steel Construction, got the chance to be photographed with the Stanley Cup.
At Structal-Heavy Steel Construction, work on the Consol Energy Center construction project is progressing on schedule. Fabrication of the components at the St. Gédéon, QC, and Point of Rocks, MD, plants is almost completed, and erection of the structural steel is scheduled for completion in October 2009.
The 18,000-spectator arena is scheduled to open for the 2010-2011 NHL season.
