AUSTIN, TX – 19 Apr, 2017 – Northwest ISD, in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, is once again entrusting Hellas Construction with their high school sports facilities. Hellas built a new sports complex for the district’s Eaton Eagles that included a football stadium and track, 2 practice fields, baseball and softball fields, and tennis courts, along with all the amenities two years ago.
This year the Byron Nelson High School Blazers and the Northwest High School Texans facilities and their district stadium are getting the same upgrades by Hellas Construction. Byron Nelson JV Stadium and the NISD Stadium will get Hellas’ exclusive Matrix® turf with Helix technology and Cushdrain® pad. The Byron Nelson JV Stadium will also be getting a new S300 epiQ track® track system as well. Each of the high schools will have one indoor football/soccer practice field and two outdoor practice football/soccer fields, all with the Matrix Helix turf and Cushdrain pad. The baseball field, softball field, and batting cages at both schools will also all have the Matrix Helix turf.
“We have enjoyed working with the Northwest ISD district in the past,” said Hellas VP of Business Development, Randy Bullock. “NISD Stadium is a very popular playoff venue. We are excited to install our Matrix turf with new Helix technology in the facility,” he said. “It’s great to see Northwest ISD come back to Hellas for its other two high school facilities. They know Hellas understands how important timeliness and reliability is for any school district. We have earned their trust and built a good relationship through those past projects,” Bullock said.
The projects were spearheaded and designed by Richard McDonald Sports Design Group out of McKinney, TX, who has worked with the Dallas Cowboys, HEB ISD, Mansfield ISD, and other districts across Texas.
Construction is underway at the football fields and should be completed by the start of the football season. The baseball and softball fields should be finished by Christmas this year.
