Pocono Mountain School District - East & West High Schools

Pocono Mountain School District - East & West High Schools

The Pocono Mountain School District retained D’Huy Engineering to perform a feasibility study to investigate the possibility of installing multi-sport synthetic turf athletic surfaces at each of its high schools. After leading the District through an analysis of alternatives for costs and project delivery methods, the District retained D’Huy to design the chosen option for both fields. A new synthetic turf surface was designed and installed inside the Swiftwater Stadium at the East High School, and synthetic turf surface with lights was completed at the West High School. Additionally, the natural turf stadium at the West High School is receiving drainage, safety, scoreboard and security upgrades.

The construction phase was bid in two contracts and coordinated with the school and athletic schedule. Each field was completed during the summer of 2016 with no interruption to scheduled events.
