Act Global is honored to have been awarded “Sports Installation of the Year Award (Single Field over 75,000 sq. ft.)” by the Synthetic Turf Council at their 2019 Spring Membership Meeting and Awards Ceremony. The selected winning field is the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, home to the New Orleans Saints for the last 43 years.
On top of its regular season with the Saints, the Mercedes-Benz Superdome hosts seven Super Bowls and the annual college Allstate Sugar Bowl and the R & L Carriers New Orleans Bowl. Due to the rigor and performance demands of top pro and college players, the Superdome requires a turf surface that can surpass these high expectations.
Although the state-of-the-art synthetic turf system from Act Global is engineered to withstand years of heavy use, the turf at the Superdome has to be replaced every year to keep up with the fast paced environment. Because the turf is still of high quality, high schools in need across America have the opportunity to enjoy an upgraded turf surface. “On behalf of the Jefferson West School District, I want to thank Act Global, the Superdome, and KTX Sports Construction for putting together this opportunity to provide a top-quality turf field for our students and community.” Pat Happer, the Superintendent of the 2017 field recipient-district, Jefferson West School District.
We’ve been thrilled to provide top quality turf and exceptional workmanship to the Superdome for the 2017 & 2018 seasons and to high schools across the nation. Act Global will continue to implement great systems this year and for years to come.
