Bruce, FASLA, LEED, ASIC, GRP and Ryan Teeter, PE, IDD Sports discussed “How fields age – what we’ve learned over the past 10 years.”

“In 30 years of practice it was by far the best educational seminar I have attended, definitely about more than just improving our knowledge of synthetic turf systems,” noted seminar attendee Carl Armanini, RLA, ASLA, Woolpert Design. “We were confronted with examining our everyday processes and how making simple decisions correctly allows us to create better places and products that result in better health, environment and life overall.”

Safety and sustainability are key values for Brock International, whose industry-leading shock pad and drainage layer used underneath synthetic turf fields has been proven to reduce G-max, which may reduce the risk and severity of concussion. Their Brock PowerBase product is currently installed underneath playing and practice fields for the San Francisco 49ers, at the Gillette Stadium practice field, home of the NFL’s New England Patriots, the Houston Texans, Arizona Cardinals, the University of Maryland, Boston College, Boise Stat
