Sports Turf Company takes home honors in the Association of General Contractors, Build Georgia Awards 2018. Sports Turf Company takes home first place in the General Contractor’s category for Thomasville High School’s football stadium in Thomasville, GA. While, Emory University’s Soccer Stadium takes home Merit honors in the same General Contractor’s Category.
Thomasville High School’s stadium was a renovation from natural grass to synthetic turf, won by Sports Turf Company through a competitive proposal process. The elite field features one of Astro Turf’s safest and most advanced synthetic turf systems. The system features a 3D3 HD turf with rootzone to help eliminate infill splash and improve player footing, as well as a Brock SP14 pad to increase player safety and maximize performance. To reduce extreme South Georgia temperatures, Zeofill was layered over the top of the infill. Zeofill is a mineral that absorbs 81% of its weight in water.
Emory University’s soccer stadium was a renovation of a natural grass field to an elite natural grass field with an underdrain system and sand based rootzone. The stadium can now can take on a great amount of water and traffic and still remain playable all season.
These two honors come after Sports Turf Company won awards for Burke High School’s football stadium ,as well as Gilmer High School in the 2017 Build Georgia Awards.
