AOLA Celebrates Completion of 75th Synthetic Turf Field

AOLA Celebrates Completion of 75th Synthetic Turf Field

Appel Osborne celebrated a momentous milestone this spring with the completion of the 75th and 76th synthetic turf fields designed by our firm.  Two synthetic turf baseball fields at Lockport CSD were completed and ready for use by the District for their 2019 baseball season. 

When one of our clients is considering a synthetic turf athletic facility, we pride ourselves on the exceptional service we provide them when working through the process.  The development of a synthetic turf field project can be overwhelming because there are numerous things to consider and many options available.  Our experienced Partners and Project Managers work closely with Owners to make sure they are knowledgeable, comfortable, and confident about the decision they are making.  Our team is well-qualified to ensure that the selected turf will fulfill the needs of all end-users including the Owner, athletics department, players, community, etc. 

Since the construction of our first synthetic turf field in 1994, our firm has been dedicated to remaining educated and well-versed in the continuing developments in design practices and product information.  The past 25 years of experience has helped our landscape architects learn best practices for designing turf fields that are safe, functional, and aesthetically appealing.  Furthermore, the relationships built with synthetic turf design and construction professionals over the past 25 years ensure that our design team and clients receive trustworthy information to assure all goals and needs are fulfilled. 

Beyond design, our team understands the importance of regular site visits during construction to verify conformance to all construction drawings, details, and specifications.  Once construction is complete, our team will do a final walk-through with the Owner and all necessary parties and assist with any questions regarding maintenance requirements. 

In 2012, Appel Osborne became the only Landscape Architecture firm in New York State to receive their Certification as a Licensed Professional by the Synthetic Turf Council.  We have been proud to uphold this certification by meeting the requirements and standards of The Council and pledging our continued compliance with their code of ethics.

Our expertise in the design and construction oversight of synthetic turf fields is something our firm is exceptionally proud of.  Thank you to the clients and Owners who have given us the opportunity over the past 25 years to provide them with athletic facilities they can be proud of. 

Here’s to 75 more!
