AUSTIN, TX (November 22, 2016) –
West Virginia University upgraded their Division I tennis courts with the help of Hellas Construction, in order to provide students
and have the ability to host tournaments at the WVU Mountaineer campus. The university now has courts comparable to those at the U.S. Open.
“The courts were not only updated, but brought up to United States Tennis Association (USTA) standards for competition,” said Brian Jorgensen, Project Manager at Hellas Construction. “We have tennis surfacing installers that specialize in Division I installations. Not a lot of companies have the ability to meet the strict tolerances set by the USTA, American Sports Builders Association (ASBA), and the International Tennis Federation (ITF),” said Jorgensen.
Jeff Palermo, WVU Project Engineer said, “The gentlemen that you had here working on our tennis courts did a terrific job!” He said, “I think it looks really nice. You have a good crew of guys.”
Hellas partnered with general contractor March-Westin Company, Inc. on this great project. Erik Edwards, March-Westin Project Manager said, “I would absolutely work with Hellas again. Everyone was very happy with the end result.”
Jorgensen said, “It was a detailed and meticulous project that Hellas is very proud of.” He said, “They can now host tournaments on world competition courts.” Hellas has resurfaced Division I tennis courts at universities all over the country.
