Webb City Chooses Midwest Synthetic Turf and Sporturf

Recently Midwest Synthetic Turf was contracted to install a new football field for Webb City high school after the existing turf reached the end of its useful life. The existing drainage base was not draining correctly so the necessary repairs were added as part of the project.  School officials were very interested in pad underlayment as a way to improve GMax performance so Craig Shonk and his team installed a Brock pad under the field.

Midwest Synthetic Turf was selected by the turf Committee based on their expertise and reputation as ASBA Certified Field Builders.  MWSTP once again teamed with Byrne and Jones to complete the base work.  School officials had a lot of confidence in this team given the amount of work they have completed in the area over the last few years.

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.

The Bob Leonard Park project was a public bid. PLAYRITE had previously built another soccer field in the same park for the Town of Farragut in 2013 so the staff knew about the company and their quality of work really well.  They appreciated PLAYRITE’s quality of work and product so much that PLAYRITE won the project despite the fact that they were not the lowest bid.
