Project Description

The St. Roberts Artificial turf field and dome was a collaborative project between the York Catholic District School Board, and The City of Markham. The project involved excavating a natural turf field at St. Roberts Catholic High School, and adding a new artificial turf soccer field, Dome, and Washroom Building. This project involved moving several portables that were in the proximity of the new field to a separate part of the school. During the construction phase, the school and additional sports fields had to remain open for use by students, staff, and community groups. Rutherford was able to successfully complete this project on-time, while allowing clients to continue to use the adjacent facilities. The new artificial turf field and dome provides the students of St. Roberts Catholic School, and people who live in the Markham community the opportunity to play soccer year round; the dome insulates 1/3 of the field during the winter months. Works on site included site preparation and demolition, installation of grade beam, asphalt paving, fencing, field drainage, site servicing, site electrical and sports field lighting.
