Currituck Community Park Phase 2

It only took 10 days to install 14 field lights poles that will provide 144,000 watts of lighting to the new athletic fields at the Currituck County Community Park.  The 60’-80’ tall fixtures were designed to withstand hurricane-force winds of 120 MPH.  Installers utilized lasers to  focus each of the 96 lights on specific parts of the fields.  The park expansion also includes an Alpine Tower: a 50’  tall structure built with pressure treated timbers.  The tower offers an ideal challenge course setting for fostering teambuilding and provides Universal Access for persons of all abilities. 
The new athletic fields are being constructed by a world-class turf contractor who has recently completed fields for several NCAA baseball stadiums as well as the Norfolk Tides and the Miami Marlins.  Fields have over a mile of sub-drainage piping allowing them to dry quickly and efficiently after rainfall and irrigation. 
Footings are in place for the 2-story concession stand structure which consists of restrooms for the facility as well as a fully equipped kitchen and press box.  There will be four pre-engineered picnic shelters to match the others on campus which will have powder-coated steel and standing-seam roofs. The project manager is Adam Hughes. The superintendent is Roger Steele.
