VAN HORN, Texas (May 22, 2014) – Culberson County-Allamore Independent School District hired Hellas Construction earlier this year for a thorough renovation of the Van Horn Eagles Stadium field. Hellas is installing a new track, synthetic turf and a field house as part of the $6 million contract with Culberson County-Allamore Independent School District. Eagle Field will be open for the first home football game on September 3.
Hellas Construction, with their in-house design capabilities, is well capable of meeting the project schedule and be a single source provider for the District, which was especially appealing to the Board of Directors.
“We are excited about the project,” said Marc A. Puig, Superintendent Culberson County-Allamore Independent School District, ” the whole team at Hellas Construction has presented itself as experts from day one, and we’re very excited about the partnership.”
“Small town, big stadium,” Puig concluded, “this is an exciting opportunity for our town and the start of a new legacy for our Van Horn Eagles.”
Hellas is replacing the fields with its Matrix® Synthetic Turf system and the tracks with epiQ TRACKSTM V300 further ensuring the longevity of the sports fields and tracks.
“This is our first time working with Culberson County-Allamore Independent School District and ASA Architects which is especially exciting to us as it gives us an opportunity to truly start a long lasting relationship with a new client and showcase our teamwork capabilities. We recently completed the construction of a new track for Alpine Independent School District and we are excited to continue our partnerships with the rural Texas school communities ,” said Reed Seaton, President & CEO, Hellas Construction.
