Synthetic Turf Sport Field Replacement for Notre Dame High School, Niles.
Bono Consulting provided engineering design and construction assistance for the engineering designs of the grotto, athletic field replacement with artificial turf, track replacement, and new field house. The engineering designs incorporated an innovative design that placed the stormwater detention under the field in the voids of the rock base course. The designs also included an overland discharge through a rain garden to separate the field underdrains from the MWRD combined sewer. Permits were required from Niles and the MWRD. A SWPPP was required for the project. The design was completed and permits were issued ahead of schedule.
Bono Consulting also provided construction assistance throughout construction including staking and layout, inspection and material testing.
Project status: Construction of Grotto was completed in June 2009. Construction of Athletic Field was completed in September 2009.
