SAN ANTONIO, TX (Mar 5, 2021) –
Northside Independent School District (NISD) is continuing its athletic facilities renovations in 2021. Harlan, Taft, and Warren High Schools will install Matrix Helix® Turf, Cushdrain® shock pad with Realfill™ Infill and epIQ V300 tracks while Health Career High School will have the track completely rebuilt. In 2019 & 2020, Hellas Construction did the same type of installations at Brennan, Holmes, Marshall and Stevens High Schools.
Stan Laing, NISD Executive Director of Athletics said “It’s always a good sign that you work with someone early on and then years later you come back and you are working with the same company. It has just been a great working relationship with Hellas.”
A slight difference at the installations in this phase is they will also include Eco Nailer™ boards. Eco Nailer is an ecologically friendly nailer board used in the turf installation process to secure the synthetic turf in place. Eco Nailer is 100% recycled plastic made from turf waste. Eco Nailer will not rot, mildew, decay, or warp, even under extreme freeze-thaw cycles and in wet climates. Eco Nailer has a 25-year warranty and will last two to three turf cycles.
Brian Parks, Business Development Manager said “Northside ISD trusts that Hellas will do a good job and we believe we have provided them an excellent product and superior service. We hope to continue this relationship long into the future”
Northside Independent School District has worked with Hellas since 2005 when Hellas Construction resurfaced Gustafson Stadium. To date Hellas has worked with NISD on approximately 30 projects since the company’s inception. NISD is the largest school district in the San Antonio area and the fourth largest in the State of Texas. Additionally, in 2020 Hellas installed Major Play® Fusion turf baseball and softball fields at Don Hardin Athletic Complex and post tension tennis courts at Sul Ross Middle School.
