Westfield to be Site of Largest Sports Complex in US
7 Apr, 2014
Grand Park Sports Campus, located in Westfield, Indiana, is expected to be the largest sports campus in the United States. The Motz Group (TMG) recently announced it will be the sole synthetic turf field specialist for the facility.
Grand Park features 400-acres of sports-related attractions including seven synthetic multi-purpose and eight synthetic baseball fields. With nearly 60 outdoor playing surfaces plus two indoor facilities, Grand Park will be the host site for many athletic events, including local, regional, and national sports tournaments, along with community sporting contests.
A project of this size and caliber requires detailed planning, carefully executed logistics, and a suite of well-vetted providers. Countless back-to-back games combined with 1,500,000 plus sports visitors expected per year calls for quality assurance, product durability, and a reliable service model. Equipped with nearly 40 years of experience and a sheer passion for perfection, TMG recognized an immediate synergy and arose to the challenge.
The company noted, “We arrived onsite at Grand Park this past August, and have been working continuously to prepare for the facility’s opening scheduled for April 2014. TMG is tasked with designing and delivering 15 quality-built synthetic turf fields to the state-of-the-art facility. Each synthetic turf system, TriplePlay for the baseball fields and SportGrass for the soccer fields, is specifically designed and engineered to perform at the highest levels and will be center stage for athletes ranging from youth to college, on through to professional.”
”With the interest in delivering a sports facility that provided the best playing surfaces available, we needed a professional vendor who shared the same vision and desire for excellence that we do. Grand Park required a passionate, dedicated group of experts all working towards the same goal…that is to develop a sports destination that is second to none. The Motz Group has proven to be that partner and their unswerving drive delivered on their promise,” said Ken Alexander, Public Works Director of the City of Westfield.
“Contributing to the development of the Grand Park Sports Complex has been an incredible experience for our team. It’s rewarding knowing that the facility’s resources, including our synthetic turf fields, will serve as the performance platform for thousands of athletes,” shared Zach Burns, President of TMG.
