DESCRIPTION: SCE represented Bridgewater Baseball, Inc. on its athletic facility improvements project in the Spring of 2014 and provided site planning, engineering, regulatory compliance and construction phase services for the baseball infield area improvements at Fields PR2 and PR 3 at the Prince Rodgers Complex, located in the Township of Bridgewater, County of Somerset, New Jersey.
SCE reviewed and researched the two (2) baseball infield areas and the adjacent sites relative to the limits of the floodplain, wetlands, transition area requirements and any prior uses. The two (2) little league baseball infields were designed as expandable to allow for 50/70 league baseball play. The updates to the field included a new synthetic turf infield surface equipped with an under drainage system. SCE field surveyed and evaluated the existing baseball field areas and developed a recommendation for drainage improvements to address site deficiencies within the area of the proposed improvements. SCE also provided testimony at the Township Planning Board meeting and provided construction phase administration and observation services.
SCE completed the project in Spring 2014, just in time for the start of the little league baseball season. The new facility has been very successful for the Township of Bridgewater by avoiding many rainouts due to field conditions and reducing the need to reschedule games and practices throughout the season.
