Scope of Work:
FIELDS lowered the field by 3 feet, installed new drainage and irrigation, replaced the heating system, added new root zone, sodded with a bluegrass blend, and installed a new Mondo-surfaced concrete running track. The sod was reinforced with synthetic fibers installed by DD GrassMaster.
Building a field with critical tolerances in the middle of a Wisconsin winter was a challenge. FIELDS engineered and built a conveyor system which moved materials up the stands through an entry tunnel through the vomitory, out to the parking lot. The demo materials included soil, concrete paving, Pex tubing, HDPE pipe, plus thousands of feet of pipe from previously abandoned drain systems.
The import materials included root zone mix, aggregates, and concrete for the track. The new hydronic heating system included new HDPE supply and return lines. Pex tubing is in the field, trench drains, concrete track, visiting players’ tunnel, and along the stadium walls. The system is designed to keep the field at 55 degrees when the outside temperature is 0 degrees with a 15 MPH wind.
