The upcoming 2018 football season should be exciting for the Iowa Falls-Alden Cadets and the Ellsworth Panthers in Iowa Falls, Iowa. Their football field is being transformed into artificial turf. Fehr Graham provided design services for the field improvements. Cadet Field will also be used for soccer in the spring.
Before construction began. The field needed upgrades to keep water off the football-only field.
The blue pipe to the left is for stormwater intake. In 2012, Fehr Graham was hired to redesign the bleachers. We were able to use some existing infrastructure, like this pipe, due to good planning back then. The fence posts are set in the foundation, giving the fence extra support.
The crushed stone base is leveled in preparation for turf installation.
