Check Out Wilbur D. Mills University Studies High School’s New Sporturf Field!

In 2016, the Pulaski County Special Schools District hired the team of Byrne and Jones Construction and Midwest Synthetic Turf Professionals via a purchasing co-op program to construct multiple synthetic turf fields for the district.  One of these fields was for Wilbur D. Mills University High School, which was a natural grass to synthetic turf conversion using PowerHouse 46 as well as a brand new synthetic running track.

Craig Shonk started Midwest Synthetic Turf Professionals LLC as a way to pair together ISO 9001 synthetic turf manufacturing with an ASBA Certified Field Builder for synthetic turf fields to better serve clients throughout the Midwest.

PowerHouse is one of our most advanced system designs that provides high resilience and increased comfort and safety. The series is made up of some of the most proven and durable fibers in the world. PowerHouse truly is a workhorse and will withstand the rigors of wear and tear for many years.

In 2017, the construction team of Byrne and Jones and MWSTP will construct a baseball field for the school.

Peru State is a Powerhouse

The football field at Peru State College was first installed in 2013 as a part of a $9 million stadium upgrade project. After researching several turf options, the school chose Sporturf™ Powerhouse 44oz, with 2.25” pile height. Even after a few years of constant use by the Peru State football team the turf looks phenomenal. So if you were concerned that a football team would tear up your brand new field in the first season then you are sorely mistaken. You can clearly see that our Powerhouse product can withstand whatever a team can throw at it.

Designed with durability in mind, PowerHouse also provides increased comfort and durability thanks to the extensive research and development that went into it.  PowerHouse truly is a workhorse and will withstand the rigors of wear and tear for many years.
