Rangers’ Globe Life Field Features Texas Inspiration Inside and Out Rangers Celebrate National Women in Construction Week The Texas Rangers celebrated National Women in Construc- tion Week in March by honoring the hard-working women who are making the Globe Life Field project become reality. Profiles included laborers, administrators, engineers and the construction site’s only female safety manager. In the photo above: Meet Telissa Hubbard. Hubbard is a Senior Project Engineer with Manhattan, currently working on Globe Life Field. Hubbard is in her fourth year with Manhattan Construc- tion and currently oversees the structural steel, roofing and handrails on the project. From the limestone quarried in Lampasas to the “Champion Red” Acme brick made in Denton, the Texas Rangers’ future Globe Life Field features materials inside and out made here in the Lone Star State. Bryan Trubey, executive vice president of HKS and the principal designer of Globe Life Field, discussed the materials being used in the construction of both exterior and interior elements of the new retractable roof ballpark during a March 7 construction site media tour. Trubey and the HKS design team have incorporated a variety of materials, the majority of which are being produced in Texas, that reflect the elements of form and structure, transparency and landscape. For example, more than 1 million Acme bricks will be used in the ballpark project. The “Champion Red” brick is made at Acme’s Denton Plant. This facility also supplied the exterior of the Rangers’ current home, Globe Life Park.
