The County of San Diego Parks and Recreation Department planned to convert a portion of the 25-acre 4S Ranch Sports Park from natural turf to synthetic surfacing. They selected a portion of the park that had the most overall use, from organized play to day-to-day practices, and general open space use. The project deliverable was design-build. BFS worked with the J.O.C. contractor and Landscape Contractor, to prepare design documents for the conversion of the nearly 205,000 SF of natural grass play field areas to synthetic surfacing. The design process included public meetings with residents, leagues, and County Parks and Recreation staff. A site plan was developed to ensure that the minor little league and girls’ softball league use worked with the soccer leagues. The positioning of the ball field diamonds and scheduling allowed soccer and ball field play to occur simultaneously. Creative design and teamwork kept the overall cost down and within the J.O.C. contract limits of the contractor.
