Artificial Turf Construction
Is all synthetic turf the same?
The Sports Industry is a complex and confusing playing field that is constantly innovating, consolidating, and improving. New fibers are being introduced, new backings are being created, new infills are coming to the market and new safety data is being released, daily.
Like most things manufactured there are varying degrees of quality. To the eye, all turf may look the same, but they are drastically different. Click the link below to learn more.
Are artificial turf fields safe?
The short answer is yes! Artificial turf fields are safe, provided they are constructed correctly and properly maintained. So, the question becomes how do you build a safe field? Our experts break down this answer in more detail in the link below.
How much does a synthetic turf field cost?
Field Costs vary depending on the municipality, the storm water requirements, the aggregate material supply, labor, and where can earthwork spoils be placed. The range can be as little as $5 per square foot all the way up to close $20 per square foot. A typical football field will range from $650,000 to $900,000 depending on the options chosen. Synthetic turf fields are similar to cars or houses with bolt options for finishes and conveniences that will add cost but will gain play-ability or flexibility.
How long does it take to build a field?
While site location, grading, and other existing factors can make things vary, a single field can take between 8 and 12 weeks to build from the time construction begins. This does not include pre-construction activities such as sports field design, running track design, permitting process, and any other local requirements
Do you have to send out for public bid to construct a field?
There are multiple cooperative purchasing agencies that have existing contracts in place for running track and sports field construction. Public entities can utilize these existing contracts to purchase exactly what they want and the contractor that they want to build it. The goal of cooperative purchasing is to provide a process that eliminates purchasing stress while saving public entities time and money.
