Brand new sports facilities for School City East Chicago
Abonmarche designed and managed construction of a track and synthetic turf soccer field at the East Chicago Central High School and a multi-purpose field at the Block Middle School. The projects included field events, landscaping, field lighting, sewer and water service and drainage to match campus design. Abonmarche staff led the project from initial community meetings and concept development through design and permitting, as well as construction inspection and oversight. As a result of this project, East Chicago High School was able to host their first home track meet in 25 years on May 7, 2011.
The new facility features an 8-lane synthetic surface track, high jump and long jump pits, pole vault, discus and shot put areas, as well as new 800-seat bleachers and a new two-story building for restrooms, concessions, storage and score keeping, a sound system, and two new scoreboards for soccer and track.
