Central Catholic High School
Central Catholic High School in Lawrence, Massachusetts engaged Huntress Sports to provide planning, engineering & design, bidding and construction administration services associated with their new $2,000,000 athletic field project. The scope of work included a state-of-the-art synthetic turf field, 300 seat grandstand, sports lighting and associated site amenities.
The new facility provides the first opportunity for Central Catholic to host home games for both men's and women's sports on their campus. For the last 20 year the school had used the existing 70 yard field in this location for practices for many of the varsity, junior varsity and intramural athletics and recreation programs. Development of the site was complicated by the prior use as a state prison facility which had been demolished in the mid 1990's.
As geotechnical investigations began it was discovered that footings, tanks, chambers and utilities from the old building were still present in the subsurface. The site was cleaned, stabilized, graded and expanded to accommodate the new athletic field program. Huntress Sports secured all permits and approvals in a timely manner and the project was completed on time and within budget.
