Calvin, Giordano & Associates, Inc. was selected by the City of Fort Lauderdale to provide planning, design, and construction services for the addition of three new soccer and lacrosse fields at Mills Pond Park. The existing park located at 2201 N.W. 9th Avenue (Powerline Road) has three lighted soccer fields, one un-lighted soccer field, and five lighted softball fields. The improvements to the park include three new fields and all associated sports lighting, drainage, and irrigation, as well as a future restroom/concession building, new parking, walkways, and landscaping. Originally, the city staff and the park’s stakeholders had indicated their desire to have at least 2 of the 3 fields be synthetic turf, and to use organic in-fill material instead of black rubber in-fill material for them. Working with the City and stakeholders, CGA prepared six (6) configuration options for bidding purposes per the City’s desire to see what layout would fit within their construction budget. The City ended up choosing the option with three (3) artificial turf fields and a future restroom. In addition, the City of Fort Lauderdale wanted to continue their emphasis on Sustainability by incorporating Green Design principles such as LED sports lighting, innovative drainage solutions, permeable pavers, and Florida Friendly Landscaping. One of the main reasons that CGA was selected for this project is its excellent team of sub-consultants. The team consists of Sports Turf One for sports field expertise, ACAI Associates for architecture, Lakdas/Yohalem Engineering for structural engineering, Nutting Engineering of Florida for geotechnical, Dickey Consulting Services for public information, and S. Davis & Associates for financial services. Construction of the project began in January and is scheduled for completion in March 2018.
