Pro Grass work crews began laying the synthetic surface at Herrnstein Field Saturday morning. Pro Grass, contracted by the Chillicothe Cavalier Club, is based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
Bob Howison, Field Superintendent, says the entire process (dependent on weather) could take two to three weeks to complete. "It varies depending your end zone letters, your logos and stuff like that because that adds time."
Pro Grass developed its own sewing machine to stitch the five yard wide sections together. The crew began with the goal line of the north end zone working towards midfield. The green turf is contrasted by the first half of the blue end zone. "Eveything gets measured from the goal line and checked, that way we can shear off rows if we're too long and then just continue on."
Howison's crew will be putting in 9-to-12 hour days to get the work done.
The sections of the lined field are unrolled from left to right across the width and once the main carpet is in place, the markings are next.
"The numbers actually get sheared in" says Howison. "We have a stencil, we set up a measurement, lay the stencil down and then the fibers get sheared out and the number gets placed and we'll glue around it."
Once the turf is laid in, it's time for the filler which consists of tiny rubber pellets.
"We broadcast (the rubber) with the spreader... it has a broadcast that shoots it 30 feet, and then we have a street sweeper we use to stand the fibers up and let the rubber all in."
Howison says the cusioning of rubber will be about an inch and 5/8ths on the playing surface.
He adds the product could have a life of up to 15 years if taken care of properly.
"It's warranted for eight years, and it's all in the maintenance program that the school does... "
Pro Grass also has a program called the Rhino Maintenance that can helps extend the life of the turf as well.
The Cavs first event to be held on the new surface is their home opener with Teays Valley September 13th.
