ECI Tackles Turf and Field Improvements for Jeffco Public Schools
ECI Site Construction Management, Inc. is currently leading a series of District-Wide Field Improvements for Jeffco Public Schools. The first phase of improvements was completed in fall 2019 and included sitework for nine schools – ECI’s largest contract to date. The second wave began in spring 2002 and is expected to be completed in late summer 2020. The six schools featured in phase two are Arvada
West High School, Columbine High School, Green Mountain High School, Golden High School, Pomona High School and Standley Lake High School.
This multifaceted project involves replacing grass sports fields with synthetic turf and installing post-tension tennis courts and track facilities. These upgraded fields and tracks are made to last for approximately 30 years, with a promise of
durability for numerous sporting events.
As the project’s general contractor, ECI is placing strong emphasis on subcontractor relations, innovative solutions, strategic scheduling and compensating for resource voids with a strong self-perform team. The Jeffco Public Schools project is led by Tony Perdue, Senior Project Manager, and Tyler Hitchcock, Superintendent. ECI is pleased to collaborate with Renner Sports Surfaces and Academy Sports Turf.
The renovations are part of an extensive voter-approved $567 million capital improvement program that includes both internal and external updates. Prior to the Jeffco Public Schools projects, ECI has led turf and field improvements for Westgate Community School, Denver West High School and JFK High School, as well as promenade and plaza
