Jeffrey L. Bruce & Company worked with Cude Engineers to redesign the competition athletic fields at Warren,Taft, and Holmes High Schools for the Northside Independent School District (NISD).
JBC was initially involved with the existing conditions field assessments at each of the schools, providing data analysis on existing soils, turf, and irrigation systems of each of the fields. After the evaluations were presented, NISD opted to invest in renovating the natural turf fields with a sand-based field type system rather than retrofit with synthetic turf.
JBC provided sports field design for these
fields that included:
• Sand Cap Rootzone
• High Performance Turf Type
• Fertility Plan for Expedited Turf Grow-in
• Finish and Sub-grade Slope Design
• Irrigation Peer Review
• Sub-Drainage Peer Review
During the construction of the playing fields, JBC provided on-site observation of each of the fields. At critical times during the installation, including sub-grade review, rootzone installation and turf installation, JBC was on-site as the Owner’s Expert Representative.
