DESCRIPTION: The Township of Irvington Board of Education selected SCE and DMR Architects as the consultant for design, permitting, and construction administration services as part of a design team for the rehabilitation of the athletic fields and facilities at Irvington High School’s Matthew’s Field. SCE was selected based on their proven performance on athletic facility design and construction experience on projects requiring a fast track design and build schedule to meet the needs of the school district and the community.
The project includes the design of multi-purpose synthetic turf fields to accommodate football, soccer, and track events within the inside of a new all-weather surface running track, design of new spectator bleacher seating with press box, additional natural turf practice areas, design of track & field events with new all-weather surfacing to meet NFHS standards, and the design of sports lighting and sound system for all fields and activities within the stadium facility, the renovation of restroom facilities and a new concession building and storage facilities. Site improvements include the design of new site grading and new fencing surrounding the entire perimeter of the facility to provide additional field access and improved site access and drainage facilities. Additional services include coordination with all regulatory agencies and the State of NJ Department of Education.
The project required an aggressive design and construction schedule and included extensive site layout, grading and earthwork, and design improvements that involved detailed engineering and project management services to coordinate the budgetary and scheduling needs of the Irvington Board of Education. Site improvements also include improved subsurface drainage systems, site electric service, security fencing, maintenance access areas, improved pedestrian access, Hall of Fame Entrance Plaza, State-of-the-art score board with messaging system and full stadium sound and graphics, and spectator sitting areas.
