LOYOLA MARYMOUNT UNIVERSITY, Los Angeles, CA
LOYOLA MARYMOUNT UNIVERSITY, Los Angeles, CA

The LLOYD Team has provided services in 2012 for Ohno Construction to renovate the field on the top level of the Drollinger Parking Structure of Loyola Marymount University. 
Lloyd provided design and construction management for the transition from natural grass to a new NCAA infill artificial turf multi-sport field. 
The project required a transition from natural grass to artificial turf, while maintaining the existing drainage system. This was accomplished by stabilizing the existing rootzone sand and then placing a pad with the new turf on top. The new infill turf installed is AstroTurf gameday Grass 3DXtreme-52. 
A major challenge of the project was maintaining structural soundness of the existing structure by carefully choreographing all of the required construction equipment. Tufted field stripes, logos and side line lettering give the field a clean look.
