The vast majority of AstroTurf fields are installed for use by multiple sports. This makes sense, since the very reason most customers go synthetic is to permit more usage.
Benefits of Using AstroTurf
Achieving a balance of properties to satisfy the requirements of multiple sports and user groups requires more than just installing different line packages — it requires a range of turf technologies and an understanding of the various user groups’ needs.
Ohio State University
The Ohio State University recently hired AstroTurf to convert an existing native soil athletic field to a state-of the-art synthetic turf field that would match the existing AstroTurf 3D fields we constructed in 2012 at Lincoln Tower Fields. This project was administered under a brand new Design/Build process for OSU, which required AstroTurf to forge ahead in uncharted territory.
AstroTurf was the prime contract holder and provided both professional design services and general construction as part of its contract with The Ohio State University. This required a great deal of leadership. Clear communication, organization, and diligence were necessary to manage the project and ensure that all subs, which included architecture and various construction firms, met their goals in a timely fashion. The specific scope of work included field design, engineering, temporary fencing, erosion control measures, excavation, storm water management, concrete, dynamic base construction, synthetic turf installation, new sod installation, landscaping and grow-in oversight.
