Wilbraham Monson Academy

Construction of New Artificial Turf Field, Baseball fields, Rubberized Running Track and Reconstruction and Resurfacing of 8 Tennis Courts.

Owner: Wilbraham Monson Academy, Wilbraham MA
Project Value: 1.7 M
General Contractor: Palmer Paving Corp

Palmer Paving Corp was contacted by WMA’s Head of the School as well the Facilities Management team to assist them with a plan to upgrade their outdoor athletic facilities. The school had a growing need to improve their existing fields in order to maintain high level athletics and to draw incoming students. Athletics are a requirement in the school curriculum and it was determined this investment was necessary for the school’s continued growth and wellbeing of its students.

So, PPC went to work with WMA’s architects and engineering teams. The 2 phase project focused first on the track, baseball fields, and tennis courts. Excavation and site work, drainage and installation of sprinkler systems and seeding fields as well as excavation, fine grading and paving, were all components of the project. Again, working with our specialty subcontractors for the tennis courts and running track and exemplary project all came together.

The second phase of the project was the construction of an artificial turf football field, extra baseball fields and paving parking areas at the fields and general parking areas on campus. From a rough unused open field, out team went to work. Now the Titans have an outdoor athletic facility that gives them a winning environment! Take a look at the time-lapse video to see how the project came together.
