COLLIER COUNTY SPORTS COMPLEX
Collier County Parks and Recreation designed a facility focused on large sporting tournaments. Currently, Phase I & II of the facility are underway, and portions of the park are expected to be open to the public within the year.
The build-out of this project includes:
nine multi-use synthetic-turf fields
a large 3,000 stadium with a multi-use synthetic turf field
baseball & softball diamonds
a field house with locker-room facilities
The various structures are high bay one or two-story structures with large spans and large building loads.
Forge recommended the contractor utilize a geo-grid to aid in controlling excessive settlement conditions to tolerable limits. This allows the entire project to be constructed on a shallow foundation. FORGE’s geo-grid recommendation prevented a vibro-replacement.
