Lloyd Sports + Engineers is excited to highlight a family member's move on up to the Big Leagues! Sam Long is pitching for the San Francisco Giants and has all our eyes glued to the games.
Congratulations to all of the teams and student-athletes who earned a spot in this year’s 2021 Women’s College World Series.
It’s been two years since the last champion was crowned at Hall of Fame Stadium in Oaklahoma City. During the pause, Lloyd Sports + Engineering was thrilled to lead the design and oversee a beautiful new playing surface reconstruction including natural grass, clay skin areas, and synthetic turf areas last year.
Good luck to all the teams and a special Go Bruins and Go Wildcats to our current Pac-12 clients at UCLA and the University of Arizona.
Maricopa Unified School District originally opened its first doors in 1955. 66 years later the District is pleased to announce the ground breaking for High School #2. Lloyd Sports + Engineering is proud to be a partner with the School District and provide a future learning facility for the community.
The new project site is located at the southwest corner of Murphy and Farrell Road. The site is planned to develop a total of 65 acres within two phases. The first phase will develop approximately 37 acres that will consist of two buildings, a parking facility, and a track and field facility. Lloyd provided engineering design for all offsite improvements, roads, water, sewer, and reclaimed water for over a mile of improvements to the project site. Lloyd also provided onsite design for the infrastructure.
Construction will begin June 2021 and school opening is anticipated July 2022.
Exciting things are happening at Monterey Peninsula College. Over the past two years Lloyd Sports + Engineering has worked with the College to refresh the football stadium turf and reconstructed the new Lobos’ baseball field.
The football field replaced the existing turf with the newest technology in synthetic turf and shock/drain pads creating a vibrant look with the highest quality of play.
The baseball field finished a full reconstruction of a new synthetic turf field & bullpens in January of 2021. Using the Lloyd team’s experience and knowledge the field was realigned to provide a deeper outfield and better use of foul lines to meet the needs of NCAA athletes.
Fantastic progress has been made on the construction of Queen Creek Elementary School #9. It's so satisfying to see the building take shape and asphalt go down. This will be an important addition to the childhood education resources for the families in Queen Creek, Arizona.
Even high profile venues can have failures. Solid and thoughtful designs in engineering is not a luxury. Lloyd Sports + Engineering can help navigate issues in field design and construction to avoid costly replacements.
In a recent article from AthleticBusiness, two school stadiums are in the process of replacing turf after experiencing drainage issues.
As part of the continued dedication to their student athletic program and effort to maintain player safety, the Washoe County School District acquired funding to convert their aging synthetic turf field to a premium quality synthetic turf playing surface. All of us at Lloyd Sports + Engineering are proud to have helped the District achieve their goal.
The aging synthetic field included an infill that consisted of sand and crumb rubber that has, after the fact, found to contain traces of lead. Part of this project included responsible disposal and removal of all existing lead-containing crumb rubber infill.
The improvements also included a reintegration of the fields drainage system, consisting of new perimeter trenches to infiltrate storm runoff. The infill is a blend of sand and clean lead-free crumb rubber. The center of field is adorned with an intricate logo of the Lancer Knight and the field of play includes alternating shades of green that give the field a unique look. The new field is striped solely for football and will support the McQueen Lancers for many seasons to come.
Congratulations to O’Brate Stadium, home of the Oklahoma State University Cowboys Baseball program, for winning the 2021 Best of the Ballparks fan vote for college facilities. Lloyd Sports + Engineering is honored to have been part of the design-build team for the stadium.

If you have seen one of our many completed project announcements, you may be wondering, how did it all start? We are going to give you a glimpse into Lloyd’s most recent project for Mountain View and Los Altos High Schools, starting with the design phase.
Lloyd recently completed design and received DSA approval for both Mountain View and Los Altos High Schools in the Mountain View-Los Altos Union High School District. Both schools will receive a brand new synthetic turf practice field, complete with new fencing and landscaping as needed.
The design of these fields started in Fall 2019 when Lloyd met with the District, school and RGM Kramer, the District Representative. Both fields had similar programs but site specific needs. Mountain View High School naturally has a larger space, but to accommodate a unified lacrosse field, the design adjusted the fencing along the baseball field. Los Altos High School has a smaller space that is enclosed by existing facilities, giving the field a more urban design approach with all the edges needing to be tied back into an existing condition. As Lloyd worked through the design process there were several meetings discussing impacts on the site circulation, noise, neighborhood use and planned uses. School staff were involved throughout the design process to help ensure it met their needs. See the side by side images of each schools existing school site and colored rendering design for details.
Both schools are in the bidding process and we are excited to see the designs come to life. Keep a look out for future updates as this projects moves into the construction phase, starting Summer 2021.
