Lloyd Sports + Engineering has been brought on to the Titans team for the practice field renovation with the SubAir system installation. The SubAir system operates in two directions allowing air to be pumped into the natural grass root zone from underneath the field and also having the ability to reverse the system and pull excess drainage water out. This gives field managers the ability to understand and control their full field profile from both the surface and subsurface levels.
Lloyd was on site this week to monitor the construction progress and assist with issues that arose during the demolition and subgrade preparation of the field including solutions to existing drainage problems and how best to approach various aspects of construction sequencing.
The facility is built on an old clay mining site with shot-rock fill which has presented several unique challenges to the project. In order to ensure efficiency with the SubAir system, the field is separated from the subgrade with a PVC lake liner, essentially creating a bathtub condition. The success of the SubAir system will be critical for the long-term health of the natural grass.
Alongside Crismon High School in Queen Creek, Arizona, Lloyd Sports + Engineering was also responsible for the design of the new Crismon Road alignment. Crismon Road has a multi-lane traffic circle that will serve the high school well for many years to come. Check out this drone video of the road alignment. Thanks again to Jake, Llyod's in-house drone pilot.
Highlighting our partners on this project: Orcutt | Winslow, Core Construction, the Town of Queen Creek and the Queen Creek Unified School District.
Congratulations to Jonathan DeWitt, Drew Charcandy, and the Entire Alabama Facilities Team on this honor recognizing their hard work and care for this natural grass stadium field. This University of Alabama field also made the cover of the magazine!

Can you imagine having this view at a state of the art soccer facility? To celebrate World Landscape Architecture Month, we're highlighting a project that we're very proud to introduce. In the Town of Chino Valley, Arizona, a new youth soccer training facility is in planning and design. Understanding the local context and the advanced programming desires for the facility are key to designing a facility that not only serves the local youth athletes, but elevates them. See below for the Phase 1 layout and the vision for the ultimate buildout.
It's nice to have a birds-eye view of the progress, click here to watch the drone video. Maricopa High School #2 construction is moving along nicely. The classroom buildings are quite far along. The traffic circle shines brightly in the Arizona sun. The start of the Track and Field construction is the latest development. Thanks again to our in-house drone pilot, Jake. We are so proud to have such a great team with Orcutt | Winslow and Chasse Building Team.
