FieldTurf Begins Laying Turf At BCBank Park
The new state-of-the-art athletic field has begun to be laid at BCBank Park. Crews delivered the turf on Father’s Day, and have started the process of laying the turf on site this Monday morning.
It will take approximately two weeks for the turf to be laid and seamed together. The eight-lane track will be started soon after turf completion. The Promise Foundation continues to meet their deadlines in insuring the facility is ready for the start of the fall football season.
FieldTurf made its debut in the sport surfacing industry in 1988 with the introduction of a synthetic grass system for tennis courts and a synthetic grass surface used to minimize wear and tear around golf practice tees. The company then began developing synthetic turf surfaces for other sports installations including soccer, lacrosse, football, and baseball. FieldTurf focuses on perfecting a sports field system with a sand and rubber infill, to provide superior athlete safety, high performance and extreme durability.
FieldTurf has spent the Spring working on three projects in North Central West Virginia: BCBank Park, Mountaineer Field, and Bridgeport High School.
