Sports Turf Company, a specialty sports construction and surfacing company, is proud to announce it has been awarded the final seven Gwinnett County High School artificial turf field renovations. This project is the fourth and final set of high school facilities awarded to Sports Turf Company for Gwinnett County Public Schools. The seven Gwinnett County projects include:

- Grayson High School in Loganville, GA
- Berkmar High School in Lilburn, GA

In 2019, Sports Turf Company completed the renovation of both South Gwinnett High School and Duluth High School’s artificial turf fields. In 2020, Sports Turf Company completed the renovations of both Dacula High School and Mill Creek High School’s artificial turf fields. Lastly, Sports Turf Company completed the field and track renovations at North Gwinnett High School, Archer High School, and Mountain View High School in early 2022.
“Sports Turf Company has continued to show they are the leader in athletic construction, specializing in surfaces that focus on safety, performance and durability for our student athletes,” Gwinnett County Schools Athletic Director Ed Shaddix said. “We are consistently impressed at the work they’ve done throughout the county and their ability to meet strenuous deadlines. We’re excited to watch these remaining fields propel our school systems’ athletic programs forward.”
Sports Turf Company will renovate all seven high schools’ existing natural grass fields to an artificial turf system that surpasses other systems in terms of safety, durability, and performance. The artificial turf system, that includes a 10-year warranty, features AstroTurf’s RootZone 3D3 Decade turf system, Brock SP Series shock pad, and the organic infill, BrockFILL. AstroTurf’s RootZone 3D3 Decade is a performance artificial turf system that combines slit film and monofilament fibers with a RootZone layer of texturized fibers for optimum durability and better shock absorbency. The Brock shock pad technology is specifically engineered to optimize safety for athletes during impacts to the surface. The infill, BrockFILL, is a highly engineered wood particle infill specifically designed to improve traction and reduce artificial turf heat. BrockFILL is the latest in alternative infills and is sustainably grown and harvested in Georgia.
“We’re excited to continue our commitment to Gwinnett County Schools by providing safer, more durable and higher performing athletic facilities,” said Sports Turf Company President Todd Wiggins. “Gwinnett County Schools are setting a new standard in the southeast by providing their student-athletes with the best of the best in terms of artificial turf systems. The award-winning system encompasses technology that far surpasses any other system in the industry.”
