“Best in class” is just as the name implies. When you award your projects to FIELDS, you know that there is no better sports construction company in the industry that can compete on quality and delivery at your negotiated price.
We have built a reputation on being the best resource you will have ever worked with. In building that reputation, we never cut corners or offer anything less than what you are expecting.
We make it a standard business practice to offer recommendations such as how to improve your project without added costs and how to provide value-added services as a means to maximize your return on investment.
Our value proposition is to provide products and services that exceed the expectations of you, our clients, and to do it in a cost-competitive and timely manner.
To those ends, our clients will attest to the quality of our work by our offering of end-to-end solutions to their needs through our:
Technical Competencies & Equipment
Due to our staff’s experience and the projects we have completed to date, we have an exceptional background in the technical competencies associated with all aspects of sports parks and athletic complex construction projects.
In addition to our modern fleet of trucks and equipment, our mechanics and superintendents have designed and fabricated a wide range of custom, one-of-a-kind implements and attachments to enhance the productivity of existing tractors, trenchers, excavators, and conveyors for both unique and everyday construction tasks.
Quality is our utmost concern, beginning at the submittals and shop drawings phase, extending to the procurement phase and continuing all the way through the balance of your project. All supporting documentation requested in the construction documents – including the product literature, samples, mockups and shop drawings – are submitted for your review.
Manufactured items are reviewed from catalog cut-sheets through technical specifications. Commodities, both organic and inorganic – including soil amendments, mulches, topsoil, gravel, sand, peat and geotextile fiber fabrics – are reviewed from lab test results, sieve analyses and other related testing. Once this is accomplished, all of these items are again inspected on your site to determine if the tested samples are in agreement with your project specifications and our own standards of performance.
Our experience suggests that each sports field has unique concerns that directly impact the success of the project. Our Manager guarantees that any of these quality considerations are accommodated on the project. These considerations can include a variety of specific solutions.
All work begins with the assembly of budgets and cost estimates. The application of technology thus begins within our Preconstruction Services Department.
Project Managers have access to portable laptop computers for use at the individual project sites. These individuals use critical path scheduling software as well as project documentation and cost tracking software.
In addition, each FIELDS satellite jobsite is computerized and linked to our corporate office network through the Internet. The resulting level of interconnectivity allows staff to share real-time data, review project status, and communicate via e-mail both internally and with customers as needed.
The safety and well-being of our clients, the general public and our employees is of paramount importance to our operation. It is our specific intent to operate in compliance with all state and federal safety guidelines, regulations and statutes.
The Worker’s Compensation Insurance Experience Modification Rate (EMR) best exemplifies safety. FIELDS’ EMR ranks among the best in the construction industry.
Our safety training program commences with the training of new hires from our comprehensive, published safety manual. Training continues with periodic in-service training that takes place throughout our staff members’ careers. Each employee has achieved OSHA 10- and 30-hour certifications. Our environmental safety procedures are in compliance with all state and federal legislation.
FIELDS is dedicated to operating in an environment of integrity, respect for our communities and preservation of our environment. We endeavor to be a responsible corporate steward of our natural resources and honor client desires to conduct their projects using eco-friendly practices.

“We here at The Ripken Experience Myrtle Beach have been pleased with our pilot program of the FIELDS turf cooling system. We currently utilize the system on our recently renovated Griffith Field, which serves as our championship field during our tournaments. Coaches and players have given us positive feedback on the effects of the system for cooling the turf during warm days in Myrtle Beach. FIELDS did an excellent job of installing the system and we hope to be able to utilize the system more in the future on other fields.”Bobby Holland, General Manager, The Ripken Experience (Myrtle Beach, South Carolina)
