College of the Sequoias, Visalia, CA

All-Weather Track & Field

For the new College of Sequoias all-weather track & field, QK incorporated synthetic materials to create a venue that was not only attractive, safe, and accessible for student-athletes, but long-lasting, and easy to maintain. The running track is made of polyurethane rubber on top of an asphaltic base, while the football/soccer field is made of synthetic turf over cushioned backing for all-weather use and injury prevention. The design features an on-site subsurface drainage system that transports water from the surface of the field to the landscaped adjacent bioswales, with a safe major storm overflow to the municipal drainage system.

Additional services included topographic surveying and base map development, civil engineering, landscape, and irrigation design, bidding assistance, construction staking, environmental compliance processing and approvals, off-site utility coordination, stormwater pollution prevention plan (SWPPP), dust control compliance, construction observation, final inspection, and project closeout. The design meets National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) specifications.
