Grading and Excavating
NCAA athletic fields and running tracks require tolerances that rival those of runways these days. With a strong focus on grade control and planarity, these tolerances are as tight as they get. This kind of work is not for the faint of heart as it takes a lot of experience and attention to detail to get these surfaces to the degree of tolerance necessary to meet the specifications.
Running Track Installation
The base stone acts as a stabilizing agent for the running track. The base stones function is to keep the track from moving or sinking over its normal life. Because of this, the stone should be compactible in nature and stable in its ability to lock up within itself.
The asphalt material is the finished product. Because of this, the asphalt needs to be placed with the utmost care and professionalism. The asphalt base provides a firm and smooth running surface. It is very important that this material be placed at a very consistent depth in its installation and that the material does not cool down prior to its placement.
