DESCRIPTION: The Passaic Board of Education selected SCE as the consultant for design and construction administration services for the rehabilitation of the athletic fields and facilities at Boverini Stadium. SCE was selected based on their proven performance on athletic facility design and construction experience on projects requiring a fast track design, bid, 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 baseball fields within the inside of a 400 meter track, design of a synthetic turf softball/little league baseball field, additional synthetic turf soccer and football practice areas, design of track & field events with new all weather surfacing to meet NFHS standards, and the design of sports lighting for all fields and activities within the stadium facility. Site improvements include the design of new site grading and new retaining walls surrounding the entire western perimeter of the stadium to provide additional field areas and improved site access and drainage facilities. Additional services include soils and geotechnical investigations, soils sampling and testing, and coordination with all regulatory agencies and the State of NJ Department of Education.
The project required an aggressive design, bid 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 Passaic Board of Education. The entire project was completed from field survey, conceptual design, soils investigations and testing, to final design, permitting and construction documents over a period of six and one-half weeks. Site improvements also include improved subsurface drainage systems, site electric service, retaining walls, privacy walls, security fencing, maintenance access areas, storage buildings, irrigation system for site maintenance, improved pedestrian access and spectator sitting areas.
