LandTek Completes State-of-the-Art Training Facility.
LandTek has completed yet another project for one of its most visible, high-profile clients: the New York Red Bulls of Major League Soccer (MLS).
Located in Hanover, New Jersey, the state-of-the-art practice field consists of a new natural turf playing surface, complete with natural sand-based bluegrass sod playing surface, allowing the best playing conditions for the team. In addition, the project features many aspects of LandTek’s Turn-Key services, including retaining walls, irrigation system, and perimeter fence with ball stopper netting system.
Like any project, there were some challenges associated, “We’re familiar with the Red Bulls, having done work for the team in the past,” said Dave Sullivan, Project Manager. “Our standards are sky-high, though, so it was important for us to treat this as the first project we’ve completed for the team. You want the owner of any job to know that when the athletes step onto the field for the first time, whether they’re playing for the first time or as an all-world athlete, they’ll be playing on the best surface possible. We gave them that with this project.”
In addition to this facility, LandTek has completed other high-profile projects for the team, including Red Bulls Stadium, and the dual-field training facility, which was featured in the September 2014 Issue of Plumbing and Mechanical Magazine.
