OGDEN, UT--(Marketwired - August 28, 2013) - Hellas Sports Construction of Austin, Texas has been awarded its second contract with Weber State University in Ogden, Utah. In 2011, Hellas installed a new state-of-the-art synthetic turf field at Elizabeth Dee Shaw Stewart Stadium, thanks to a generous donation from Robert and Annette Marquardt. The new project entails installation of 22,000 square feet of Matrix® Turf at a new indoor synthetic practice field on the second level of the Weber County Ice Sheet Expansion. The field will be multipurpose for use by the Wildcat's football, soccer, baseball and softball programs' training during winter months.
Hellas Sports Construction's proprietary turf is currently in manufacturing and is projected to be installed by this October.
Hellas' popularity has been soaring in the U.S. in the last decade. With over 1,900 facilities constructed nationwide, more than 1.5 million athletes play on Hellas surfaces annually. Its impact in the country is also remarkable, creating the elite standard of safe playability and serving as a model that tends to attract other sophisticated athletic programs and facilities in the country.
