Cardinal Newman High School, Synthetic Baseball Field

Carlile • Macy was chosen to assist Cardinal Newman High School with the design of a new synthetic turf baseball field and soccer practice field on their Santa Rosa campus. Carlile • Macy's civil engineers prepared the grading and drainage design of the permeable base for the synthetic turf. Several alternative base designs were explored before selecting a system utilizing a grid of 12" wide flat subdrains underlying a 4" base of Class 2 permeable drain rock. The project was designed and permitted through the County of Sonoma on a fast track schedule and was completed in summer 2009.
