Originally called "The New Comiskey Park," the construction of U.S. Cellular Field was completed in 1991. A few years later, it was found that all concourses throughout the stadium exhibited excessive cracking because there weren't enough control joints in the topping slab. In addition, the waterproofing membrane failed and luxury box ceiling tiles fell down every time it rained. The main challenge of this project was to complete renovation during the baseball off-season, even when it was too cold normally to pour concrete during the winter months.
