Source: Hellas Construction Austin, TX (December 7, 2016)- Hellas Construction leads the industry in sports construction, product innovation, and project resourcefulness because to Hellas, more than the game matters. Hellas is continually using “green” approaches to produce the best products and facilities that are environmentally responsible and resource-efficient. Green Initiatives are becoming more sought after, with more than 30 major LEED projects on the ground and more companies commencing projects nationwide. Hellas recognizes the need to foster the green movement toward environmentally sound products, procedures and construction for a better environment.
Hellas starts with internal manufacturing of non-toxic polyurethanes that are the foundation of their quality products. Hellas’ products contain no heavy metals or toxins, providing “greener” running tracks and synthetic turf systems. In addition, their TPS 5000 Court surfacing products test excellently in solar reflectivity, which reduces heat island effect. Made from environmentallyfriendly latex and water-based acrylic coatings, Hellas TPS® Court Surfacing products are suitable for all outdoor sports court surfaces.
Hellas continues to employ surveys and studies when beginning design projects to determine the most effective options for sustainability. Hellas utilizes effective drainage systems to reduce runoff and control water balance at each project site. They offer eco-friendly, locally sourced, recycled materials and resources, from the concrete and asphalt for parking lots and sidewalks, to synthetic turf infill and LED lighting systems.
Hellas’ patented Matrix® turf, the trusted turf of the Dallas Cowboys at AT&T Stadium and The Star at Frisco, TX, and other Hellas synthetic turf systems reduce water consumption for athletic and landscaping projects by up to 100%, saving millions of gallons of water every year. With their exclusive Realfill™ infill system, as well as the epiQ Tracks® running systems, projects result in more than 25 million tires being diverted from landfills each year. Hellas offers recycling of turf systems, including bagging infill at the end of their lifecycle, which can be used later for landscaping. Turf can also be donated and reused at other project sites in different locations. Hellas offers organic alternatives, like the Geo Plus™ infill that is made from 100% plant-based, organic materials that are carefully selected and specially treated. The organic coconut fibers and cork ensure the highest level of sports performance, while lowering the surface temperature, to compare similarly to a natural grass field experience with 90% less water usage.
Hellas is a silver level member of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), which helps to advance spaces that are better for the environment and healthier to live, work, and play in. Hellas can use their expertise, products, and technology to help you earn points and discounts on LEED certification of your project. Hellas is helping to make sure all of our communities can conserve natural resources and reduce their carbon footprint.
