Andover Central had seen other turf companies come and go since getting their first turf field back in 2000. Project Managers Alonso Arredondo and Jared Carr contacted the Vice President of Development at Hellas Construction, Michelle Kuhns, it wasn’t just about new turf, it was about creating a sports complex not just a sports facility. Combined with Hutton Construction and Schaffer, Johnson, Cox and Frey Architects, the team became a true partnership in creating a complex any student-athlete would be proud to call home.
Hellas helped transform the middle school field and track into a new state of the art facility. With the new cushdrain mat under the turf and the color inlaid exchange lanes on the track it is truly a beautiful facility. Integrating the new field into an existing baseball and softball facility, along with a new 14 court tennis complex makes it one of a kind in the state of Kansas.
Hella’s reputation and staff were two of the biggest selling points for Arrendondo and Carr. This along with the state-of-the-art products made this an easy choice for them. Safety was at the top of the list for Andover Central and Hellas was able to provide the latest technology with the new cushdrain mat. The overall satisfaction of the finished product is immeasurable.
