Sports Turf Company, a specialty sports construction and surfacing company, is proud to announce they have been awarded the renovation project for Cobb County schools to replace the synthetic fields at all 16 of the county’s high schools. This is an exceptionally large replacement contract with a very tight schedule for the project. “This was a major decision for Cobb County staff and the Cobb County Board of Education and will greatly benefit Cobb students who use the county’s stadium fields,” said Cobb County School District Athletic Director Don Baker. “In our judgment, Sports Turf Company and AstroTurf provided the best value for our school system. Along with the play and durability advantages of the Decade system, it includes a 10-year warranty, meaning that the cost of ownership is reduced. Sports Turf exceeded our expectations across the board, and we are excited to break ground.”
Sports Turf Company’s solution is an AstroTurf, RootZone® 3D Decade System. The texturized nylon RootZone fibers, coupled with the dense 60 oz. turf enables the system to encapsulate infill, which results in minimal rubber splash, less infill migration than basic systems and, most importantly, better shock absorbency. The system improves safety, playability, and durability, making 3D systems the top choice for athletes and field owners alike. “We are pleased that Cobb County Schools has the faith in the Sports Turf/AstroTurf team for this tremendous responsibility of renovating their schools’ fields,” said Todd Wiggins, President of Sports Turf Company. “It is such an honor to work with a system that takes that much care in selecting companies that will construct their facilities.”
