• Stadium on schedule, turf and all - Daily Pilot- Topic: DrainageNews

The stadium, which includes an all-weather track and a fieldhouse, is expected to be complete by May 2008, in time for graduation ceremonies. But anyone who comes near the artificial turf in Estancia High's new football stadium with anything other than water risks absorbing the wrath of Principal Phil D'Agostino. The turf hasn't even been installed on the field yet; construction on the new stadium for Estancia and Costa Mesa high schools is about 30% complete, project inspector and construction supervisor Mike Shotwell said. Shotwell — also a building inspector with the Division of State Architects — estimated the drainage system for the field, similar to the one at Orange Coast College, would be installed in September, and sometime after that, the turf will be laid. The fieldhouse, which features separate facilities for home and visiting teams, down to the locker rooms, concession stands, and restrooms, is about 50% complete, Shotwell said. The asphalt foundation for the all-weather track is complete, and ready to be covered by the rubberized surface, and all of the infrastructure for plumbing and electrical is complete as well, Shotwell said. read me
