Addressing field flooding issues with installation of an efficient artificial turf.

Plunkett Field
Immaculate Conception High School
Elmhurst, IL

Immaculate Conception High School selected Wight & Company for the construction of a new synthetic turf field at their campus, replacing a grass field that had long been plagued by water and drainage problems. The entire project was funded by private donations from parishioners and involved converting the existing athletic field into a doublewide football/soccer field and adjacent baseball field. We also added batting cages, as well as a new entry plaza and gateway monument to welcome spectators into the athletic complex. Besides being a highly cost-effective project, the school could also benefit from additional income received when renting the fields out to other teams.
