The Issue: 
Bentley challenged SCG to convert an old, water-laden farm site into a multi-faceted, premium athletic complex.

The Job: Responsible for excavation, roadway development, sub base construction, drainage, irrigation, installation and more, SCG transformed the once wetland-below-the-floodplain, into a state-of-the-art athletic facility, complete with new baseball and soccer fields, tennis courts and a track. 

The Results: Despite the challenges at hand, SCG constructed a facility that rivals that of semi-professional sports programs. “We have what looks like a minor league baseball field; and a track that could be used by some of the world’s most elite runners – the whole thing is incredible,” said Bob DeFelice, Bentley athletic director and baseball coach. “The detailed work and the solutions to the numerous challenges SCG had to come up with quickly and efficiently are unlike anything I’ve ever seen,” he said.
