Crismon Road and its traffic circle, Queen Creek, Arizona, episode two. Concrete work has begun for both the inner circle curbing as well as the outter circle curbing. The Traffic Circle included over 100 foot radius for right-of-way with approximately 20 feet of asphalt for a travel lane. The inner curb is mountable along with 13 feet of Class "A" concrete for extra protection. The inner curb and extra width of concrete allows for over steering and correction while manuvering the roundabout. A new irrigation channel along the edge of Crismon Road was constructed to supply water to the existing farms next door. We were also lucky to catch a couple of dust devils off in the background. Thanks again to Jake, our drone pilot.

Did you see this in the news? Well, it’s happening… Rezoning has been completed and the project team is deep into design, developing solutions for the construction of phase one, while accommodating future phases… because the need for the additional phases will be eminent once the kids (and parents) are able to experience the joy of learning life skills through soccer at this premium facility and fields.

Several members from the Lloyd Sports + Engineering team celebrated the upcoming retirement of ASU's Athletic Grounds Facilities Manager, Brian Johnson, this past Wednesday at the Papago Golf Course. The lunch included attendance from industry friends and colleagues from ASU, UA, SiteWorks, and West Coast Turf. In addition, special guest Don Follett, former Director of Fields and Grounds with the Baltimore Ravens, who preceded Brian's position at ASU, was also present for the celebration. The intimate lunch honored Brian's 37 year legacy at ASU, his lasting friendship, and notoriety talent that he has brought to field quality at both the professional and collegiate levels.
Congratulations again to Brian Johnson from all of us at Lloyd, and wish him the best in his next chapter!
Maricopa High School #2 construction continues here in Episode 2. The classroom and gymnasium building envelopes are closed up. The Track and Field construction is progressing and it's fun to watch the water truck do its job. Thanks again to our in-house drone pilot, Jake. We are so proud to have such a great team with Maricopa High School District, Orcutt | Winslow and Chasse Building Team.
We like to look back on previous projects every now and again to see how everything is holding up. This month we are checking in on how the Santa Teresa High School athletic fields and landscaping are looking after 9 months. The fields look great and the landscaping is really starting to fill in. The bioswale grasses look lush and green and the trees are full!
Here are some before and after photos around the site. Thanks again to Field Turf and Bothman Construction for excellent work.
Lloyd Sports + Engineering's own Sam and Anthony met Olympic gold medalist Dan O'Brien during our tour of Bell Bank Park (Legacy) this past month. Dan O'Brien is a former decathlete and is now Executive Vice President of Athletic Development at the park and helped lead the tour as we visited their sports medicine and athletic training facilities. Dan is personally involved in on-site training for the athletes at Bell Bank Park.
During lunch at the G.O.A.T. Restaurant at Bell Bank Park, we had this photo taken with Dan and his 1996 Olympic Gold Medal for Decathlon. Dan shared an interesting fact with us: only the Gold Medal Owner is allowed to wear it, but we were allowed to hold it, so we were content with that.
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.
