Brookfield, CT – When administrators from New York-based Trinity-Pawling School chose to rebuild the current soccer/football field, part of the design and installation process included the design of a new subsurface stormwater management system. Engineers at KG&D Architects collaborated with contractors from Fastracs, Inc. to design and install a subsurface system from CULTEC that would effectively provide detention to the site.
Founded in 1907, Trinity-Pawling School is a traditional college-preparatory boarding and day school for boys grades seven through 12 and post-graduates.. Trinity-Pawling offers 13 Varsity sports, including football, soccer, basketball, squash, lacrosse and tennis. As part of a major ongoing renovations project, student-athletes will soon be able to play on a brand new artificial turf field. The new field, which will include lights for night games and ample parking, will be located in an area behind the athletic complex currently used for parking and the football practice field, and will be utilized by Trinity-Pawling’s Varsity football, soccer and lacrosse programs. Part of the process for designing and installing the new turf field included the design of a new subsurface stormwater management system. The team chose CULTEC’s Recharger 330XLHD®, anefficient chamber that has a lower volume in the early stages of a storm, and a total of 95 chambers in five rows were installed beneath the site for the new turf field. The Recharger 330XLHD has a capacity of over 400 gallons, making it one of the largest CULTEC chambers available.
