Bolts, Boilers Share The ’Stick’s Love

Friday, August 8, 2014

When Sir Paul McCartney serenades Candlestick Park to sleep next week, nostalgic fans need not go home emptyhanded.

They can take a stadium boiler with them. Or a light fixture. Or even the scoreboard.

Fans said goodbye Sunday (Aug. 3) to the storied San Francisco ballpark, which is being demolished to make way for a 1.1 million-square-foot multiuse development.

Candlestick Park (then called 3 COM Park) was home to both the Giants and the 49ers in 1998. The baseball team moved to AT&T Park in 1999. The Niners head for the new Levi's Stadium this year.

First, however, the structure must be picked clean, down to the industrial washing machines. That process will occur next month, when the stadium's remaining industrial assets are auctioned off during a three-day webcast.

A public preview will be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. PT Sept. 9, according to an announcement by San Diego-based auction house Heritage Global Partners (HGP), which will oversee the sale.

The sale is being held in conjunction with Schneider Industries Inc., which also presided over the carcass-stripping of Tiger Stadium and Busch Stadium.

Come and Get It

Items up for grabs at Candlestick include:

  • Scoreboards;
  • Light fixtures;
  • Broadcast equipment & televisions;
  • Luxury box assets;
  • Electrical patch paneling;
  • Concession and kitchen equipment;
  • Industrial washing machines;
  • Boilers and generators;
  • Machine shop equipment; and
  • Stadium infrastructure.

“As both a Giant and 49er season ticket holder for 30+ years, The ‘Stick will forever have a special place in my heart, and I know countless others feel the same," said HGP managing partner Kirk Dove.

The artificial turf is long gone, but the lights, infrastructure and scoreboard are still up for grabs. A public preview of the stadium's three-day auction webcast is set for Sept. 9.

He called the auction "a rare opportunity to own some of the infrastructure of this famed stadium before it’s torn down."

Added HGP managing partner Ross Dove: “I attended sports and special events at The ‘Stick for over 50 years with my dad Millard and grandfather Harry. I’m certain both would be very proud that we are handling this one-of-a-kind auction.”

Story of The 'Stick

Candlestick was originally built in 1960 as the home of the San Francisco Giants, who remained at the park for 40 years.

In 1971, Candlestick also became home to the San Francisco 49ers, who saw five Super Bowl champion seasons there. (The Niners head to the new Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara this season.)

The ballpark took on added luster as the setting for the Beatles' final full concert in August 1966.

McCartney's sold-out "Farewell to Candlestick: The Final Concert" on Aug. 14 is the last scheduled event at the stadium.

If PCI Program is equivalent to NACE II then can i assume PCI Certification as NACE III

No. Neither NACE PCI nor SSPC PCI is equivalent to NACE CIP III.
