Texas Sports Builders Installs Colorado Independent School District's Water-Conserving Artificial Turf Field

Fast Installation Lets Wolves Start Football Season on State-of-the-Art Surface

Burleson, Texas, UNITED STATES

COLORADO CITY, Texas, Nov. 9, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- When the Colorado High School football team plays its home games, the school's new state-of-the-art artificial turf field benefits the area in two ways: by conserving water and generating revenue.

The new Mondoturf artificial turf field, which is manufactured by Mondo, replaced a natural grass field at Wolves Stadium. It was installed by Texas Sports Builders, the leading sports construction company in the Southwest. The company began installation the first week of July and finished in time for the Wolves to kick off their home season on Sept. 9.

According to Reggy Spencer, superintendent of the Colorado Independent School District, the school district chose an artificial turf field because it would reduce water consumption—a major concern because of the state's ongoing drought. "We are under strict water restrictions, so our natural grass field was not looking its best and we had to limit its use," he said.

Officials also determined that the new field would help position the school as a potential host for playoff games. "We have always been passed over as a playoff site in favor of schools that had artificial turf fields," Spencer said. "With our new artificial turf field, we will be able to get more use out of field year-round, and we'll be able to generate revenue for the city by hosting playoff games."

When the time came to select the contractor to install the new artificial turf field, Texas Sports Builders was the obvious choice, partly because of the school district's experience working with the company. "Texas Sports Builders rebuilt our running track a few years ago, and we were very pleased with the result," Spencer said. "Naturally, we turned to them to help us choose the best artificial turf field."

Spencer said Texas Sports Builders was great to work with—accommodating changes to the project even after installation began, and meeting the school's requirements for a fast installation.

"It can be tough to make changes in the middle of a project like this, but Texas Sports Builders did everything we wanted, and they finished in time for our home opener," said Spencer. "We couldn't be happier with Texas Sports Builders and we highly recommend them for installing tracks and fields."
