Another month has flown by and progress continues at Bell Bank Park. Since our last construction update in October (click here if you missed it), turf is starting to be installed on softball fields, sand is being filled in on the volleyball courts and concerte is being laid for the pickleball courts. We are excited to watch and be a part of this project come to life.
The newest facility for Cardinals fans at the State Farm Stadium is open! Next time you are down at a Cardinals game, come out to the Great Lawn and enjoy this brand new hangout. Thanks to our partners for a great project SmithGroup and AECOM.
Completed just last month, the Carson City School District converted their aging synthetic turf football and soccer field to premium quality synthetic turf. The aging field included unusual grading where the crown of the field was extended after the field goal posts, creating a “shelf” and safety hazard of potentially tripping athletes. Part of the project included careful re-grading of the field to eliminate the “shelf” or drop off, making it a safer place for students to play on the field and adjacent track.
Improvements also included renovation to the drainage system, irrigation system, a full re-striping for football and soccer, and cleaning and spot repairs to the track. One non-traditional feature added to the field was sprinkler heads adjoined with a “Coach’s Button” allowing for the sprinklers to run on hot days for players, without additional work from maintenance staff. allowing for ease of use by the Carson High School athletics department. Lloyd Sports + Engineering has been pioneering this feature on multiple other projects.
All of us at Lloyd are proud to have helped Carson City School District achieve their goal and provide a field that will support the Carson City Senators for many years to come.
Glad to be a part of this design team! It is very satisfying to see the ribbon cutting ceremony for Glendale Union High School District. The addition of a classroom building will be the new home for band, choir, and ROTC. Thanks to Orcutt|Winslow and McCarthy Building Companies for another successful partnership.
