BBS Vice President and co-head of Site Planning and Design Group, Curt Coronato, says the West Fields include a 3.7-acre baseball field and a 3-acre softball and soccer field.

The renovations of this section will include a re-configuration of the lower baseball field to have proper solar orientation, natural turf repairs, construction of a new backstop, play dugouts, a new scoreboard, an automatic irrigation system, re-grading of the field and a new under-drainage system to help stormwater runoff.

The neighboring field, Barrett Field, will also include re-grading, a drainage system, an irrigation system and a new scoreboard.

The company’s drainage system design includes plastic collection chambers on crushed stone bases and perforated polyethylene pipes along the perimeters of the fields. There are also overflow stormwater retention basins, which will be located near local plant species.

In addition to BBS Architects, the project team includes the office of Thomas Riley, PE, structural engineer for the multi-purpose building, and Avanti Building Construction, general contractor.
