DESCRIPTION: The Union Catholic High School Sports Complex is a multi-purpose facility that included a four (4) lane 400 meter track with six (6) lane 110 meter hurdle run that enclosed a baseball field, softball field and soccer/lacrosse field. The significant economic attribute of this facility is the merger of the baseball warning track and foul ball areas as a running track. The project commenced in June 2009 and was completed November 2009. The facility included the entire regrading of the existing field to meet applicable design standards.
Property constraints required the installation of retaining walls and extensive regrading and tree removal to minimize the off-site disposal of excess materials. The entire facility was designed by SCE under the direct supervision of Mr. Daren J. Phil, P.E., P.P., C.M.E. The entire facility was designed to adhere to the strict standards established by the National Federation of State High School Associations for certification as an ASBA Class 4 facility. The synthetic turf field was designed as a multi-sport facility that was permanently striped for baseball, softball, soccer and lacrosse sporting events. Select colors to establish base lines and infield areas were also implemented to enhance the facility’s aesthetics.
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, lighting and access/security fencing. The sporting facility improvements were constructed under a design build contract that utilized the extensive experience and expertise of SCE and The LandTek Group. 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 school colors and custom logo for team recognition. SCE also provided the expertise in the evaluation and processing of the applicable permits addressing Local, State and County requirements.
