(Nov 23, 2021) – Hellas Construction announced completion of a new multi-purpose synthetic turf field for City College of San Francisco. The CCSF Rams are 10-Time Junior College Football National Champions.
Crews from Hellas Construction finished construction at the George M. Rush Stadium with a complete system for the football field including 19 mm Cushdrain®, Matrix Helix® synthetic turf and Elia Renufill™ infill for superior safety and fast play. The field passed a full battery of performance tests that use natural grass benchmarks for field performance in shock absorption, vertical deformation, energy restitution and more.
The field uses no crumb rubber infill. Instead, Hellas installed Elia Renufill, an olive particulate infill that provides a firm and fast system which absorbs water for temperature reduction. Elia Renufill is a sustainable solution that does not cut down any trees.
According to Head Football Coach, Jimmy Collins “City College is the winningest junior college football program in the history of the United States, we’ve won more national championships, transferred more players to Division 1 schools and we are excited to have Hellas install the highest quality synthetic turf field in the United States.”
