GO BIG! The sports tourism industry is booming. More and more multi-field complexes open every year.
These facilities are designed to be meccas for traveling teams. They aim to provide guests with everything they need for successful tournaments – hotels, shopping – and of course, high-quality athletic surfaces.
Just as sports tourism facilities provide a one-stop destination for teams and families, AstroTurf serves as an indispensable partner in the process – standing side by side during the entire process.
Questions? We’ve Got the Answers!
Here’s a broad roadmap, outlining some of the ways we help your project earn its return on your investment:
1. Feasibility Studies
The first step in the process is conducting a feasibility study. You’ve got a vision, but you need a road map to get there.
AstroTurf can connect you with third party specialists that will evaluate:
- Land Access
- Funding sources and strategies
- Economic impact on local businesses
- Regional populations of users
- Local infrastructure to support influx of visitors
All of these factors and more will help you get a clear understanding of what your scope and reasonable expectations should be. Bigger isn’t always better – you don’t want to spend millions of dollars above and beyond what the project will justify. We can work together to set a budget and understand how long it will take to recoup your investment.
2. Site Analysis
Once you have a budget in mind from your feasibility study, you’ll need to analyze the site to determine how many fields you can build.
AstroTurf has on-staff licensed engineers and partnerships with design firms across the country who can analyze soil borings and surveys to access how many fields you can build.
3. Surface Selection
AstroTurf has earned a reputation within the turf industry as a company that focuses on innovative technologies and sport-specific playability. We offer a comprehensive range of systems to serve a full spectrum of budgets and sports.
Our holistic partnership during the planning stages will allow us to recommend surfaces that balance factors such as:
- Player Protection
- Maintenance Requirements
- Heat Mitigation
4. Construction & Installation
It really starts to get exciting when we finally break ground. This is when our investment in the project pays off – we’ve been with you through each step of the process, and we’ve got the resources to get your project across the finish line. Construction can take months, so you need to trust that your partner can afford to be there for the long haul.
Our reputation and history means AstroTurf brings a lot to the table:
- $100,000,000 bonding for peace of mind
- More directly employed base and installation crews than any other turf company.
