DESCRIPTION: The Angels of Victory Field at Mount St. Mary Academy won the prestigious honor of being named one of the Distinguished Sports Field Projects of 2009 by the American Sports Builders Association (ASBA). This project included the installation of a new, six-lane equal quadrant track and synthetic field in the summer of 2007. The facility includes 100,000 cubic yards of earthwork and 30,000 square feet of retaining walls to provide the proper grade for the proposed use.
The entire facility was designed by SCE under the direct supervision of Mr. Daren J. Phil, PE. The track and field layout was designed to adhere to the strict standards established by the American Sports Builders Associations, ASBA for certification as a Class 3 facility. This standard promotes the ability for setting national collegiate or NCAA records. The synthetic turf field was designed as a multi-sport facility that was permanently striped for soccer, lacrosse and field hockey sporting events. The facility has been designed utilizing all state-of-the-art materials including in-filled synthetic turf, polyurethane track surfacing, field event equipment, bleachers, scoreboard, stormwater management improvements, retaining wall system and access/security fencing.
Management of this facility was coordinated by SCE to hold strict tolerances on the field construction and selected specifications. The facility design included the incorporation of the Academy colors and custom logos for team recognition. Advanced fiber optic video and digital audio systems were also included into the facility for interface with the athletes and spectators. SCE has also provided expertise in the evaluation and processing of the applicable permits addressing local, county and state requirements. Change orders that were requested by the Directress were performed after implementation of a value engineering assessment to minimize increases in the project costs.
