Warhill Sports Complex

Artificial Turf Replacement, Repair, and Maintenance – January 2019

Scope of Work

The Warhill Sports Complex Artificial Turf Replacement project will provide improved playing surfaces to the existing 7 artificial turf fields. The location of these fields consists of 6 fields stationed opposite the Warhill Indoor Sports Complex and the 7th field located within Wanner Stadium. The infrastructure upgrades will include site work to the aggregate base of all 7 fields. The replacement of the artificial turf playing surfaces is for all seven fields. Infill materials currently being used on the existing fields will be removed, filtered, and tested for reuse into the replacement artificial turf. The 6 fields located together will be expanded include added areas for goal placement and common areas. A layer of infield material named Cool Play will be added to all fields which will aid in the reduction of surface temperatures. Fields will have sewn in lines for Football, Field Hockey, Soccer and Lacrosse.
