Calvin, Giordano & Associates, Inc. was selected by the Town of Davie to provide design, and construction services to convert two existing natural grass playing fields (Bronco and Mustang) to artificial turf at Bamford Park. The Town staff indicated their desire to have the fields converted to artificial turf consisting of silt-film and to use a three layered heat reducing composite infill material of selected graded sand, S.B.R. crumb rubber or similar material and a top layer of composite material with heat reducing properties in order to provide a more enjoyable experience for the players during hot months and player safety. The overall project included the design for installation of artificial turf and drainage system for Bronco and Mustang Fields, ADA compliant sidewalk improvements, grading and retaining wall design. The fields will serve multiple sports; Bronco field will have markings for Boy’s Football, full length soccer for 11vs11 (U13 onwards) and Men’s lacrosse, and Mustang Field will have markings for full soccer for 11vs11 (U13 onwards), two small soccer fields for 9vs9 (up to U12) and full Men’s lacrosse. The project was permitted through the Central Broward Water Control District.
The project is currently under construction and is scheduled to be completed in March 2018.
