Scope of Work:
FIELDS began this project with removal of the existing natural grass field, which was drained by an older PAT (Prescription Athletic Turf) system, and also removal of the irrigation system. SVSU approved the FIELDS recommendation to add concrete flatwork in front of all three bleachers sections for ease of maintenance and equipment access. A new stabilized sand base was placed on top of the existing sand, the existing PAT drainage system was renovated, the irrigation system was modified to wet down the new synthetic field when needed, and Desso synthetic turf with sand/rubber infill was installed. FIELDS also replaced the goalposts. The project was completed before the SVSU football team began its fall training camp in August 2011.
