Project Details

Abonmarche designed and managed the construction of this award winning athletic facility for East Chicago Central High School. The project included a new varsity turf football field, a varsity soccer field, a track, and a multi-purpose football, soccer, and lacrosse field.

The project included a new customized synthetic turf field to minimize concussions and other player injuries. It featured green-colored rubber granules in the infill to keep the field up to 20% cooler on hot days. A creative structural support and drainage system was designed due to the high water table and 20 feet of debris under the site. The project included a new, sustainably designed press box, bleachers, restrooms, and concessions, as well as energy efficient lighting, score boards, and a sound system.

Several work sessions and project meetings were held with the superintendent, school board, building corporation, facilities and operations directors, athletic directors, and coaches.
