Taking Shape: Construction Blog #3

Track and Field construction in Brampton

The flat base that the turf will be laid on top of is nearing completion. The shape of the running track and the floodlights can clearly be seen.

As you can see from the latest photos, it’s starting to look more like a field and less like a building site at Heart Lake Secondary School in Brampton. There is still a long way to go, but the field and track is starting to take shape. The base for the field is currently being constructed ready for the turf to go on top. The filtering system and drainage are being put in, and the the rolls of turf for the field will be delivered next week. Laying the turf will begin later in the month.

As we wrote in our previous post, the lights are already installed and both the inner and outer curbs for the track are in place. The asphalt for the track will start to be laid later this week.

We are still on target for a mid-August completion date and leagues, rentals and programming will start in August.

We’ll be posting regular updates on the construction of the new field and track at Heart Lake Secondary, 296 Conestoga Drive, Brampton on torontofootyblog.com. For details of our upcoming adult 7v7 soccer leagues, kids programs and field rentals go to toronto.footysevens.com or contact us at chris@footysevens.com.

Floodlights

Ephesus All Field Sports Lighting System

Lights, Camera: Action!

Things are looking a whole lot brighter now! Why? The LED floodlights for the field are on site and have been installed. 4 huge concrete posts have been raised and 9 Ephesus All Field Series lighting fixtures are in place at the top of each post.

One of the best things about the lighting is that it should be the greenest lighting solution of any field in Brampton. The LED lights are far more energy efficient than the traditional metal-halide bulbs and the energy savings are dramatic. The LED system runs at 27,000W at full power, an energy saving of almost 60% over an equivalent system lit with the traditional type of bulbs.

It’s also controllable too, meaning it can be brought up to full power slowly as the daylight fades and sections can be turned off or lowered if only part of the field is in use. The lights can be dimmed anywhere from 10-100% with a a few adjustments from the coordinators cellphone, keeping the wasted energy to an absolute minimum.

Field and Track

Track construction at heart Lake Secondary School, Brampton

3 stages of the track construction so far: the old dirt track, the inner curb goes in and finally the outer curb is put in place and the the surface is smoothed, ready for the asphalt.

The huge pile of dirt and material that was on the field is now gone, and the construction of the drainage base that sits beneath the field is well underway. The second concrete curb the surrounds the outside of the track is now in place, and it looks like a circular roadway is running around the field. It is of course the base level of the track, and asphalt will be laid on top of that before the rubberised track surface goes on top towards the end of the project.

We are still on target for a mid-August completion date and leagues, rentals and programming will start in August.

The view from the north of the field, looking over the work that has gone on so far: it’s not much to look at yet, but it will be a fantastic sports facility once complete.

We’ll be posting regular updates on the construction of the new field and track at Heart Lake Secondary, 296 Conestoga Drive, Brampton on torontofootyblog.com. For details of our upcoming adult 7v7 soccer leagues, kids programs and field rentals go to toronto.footysevens.com.

Construction Update: June 11th

Construction has been underway for a few weeks and, as you would expect, there’s already been a remarkable transformation on the field.

Despite the torrential rain over the past couple of weeks, we are still on target for a mid-August completion date and leagues, rentals and programming will start in August.

Field and Track Construction

A lot of the work going on just now is some of the heaviest work that goes into building the field and track. The removal of the old goals, tearing our the aging asphalt and then stripping off the top soil and sublayer from the existing field is underway.

The soccer field and track have an extensive drainage system to make sure that they can be used in wet weather, and the drainage is already in place. The concrete curb that is the outside boundary of the turf and the inside boundary of the track is now in place and you can see it in the photos below.

What’s Next?

The asphalt that lies beneath the rubberised surface of the track will be laid in the next couple of weeks, but the turf soccer field surface will not start to get laid until July.

We’ll update the progress of the field every couple of weeks on torontofootyblog.com. For information about field rental please contact us at admin@footysevens.com.
