The professional synthetic turf system from Act Global has been relocated as part of a donation project by KTX Sports Construction to Jefferson West school district for widespread community use
Austin, TX- Following the conclusion of the 2017 NFL season, KTX Sports Construction began the process of relocating one of the most prestigious artificial grass fields in the world to the northeastern Kansas town of Meriden. The relocation is part of a donation project from KTX Sports Construction’s Project 340.
Because the Mercedes-Benz Superdome installs a new artificial grass surface each year, each field is only utilized for eight regular NFL season games and two NCAA bowl games. The state-of-the-art synthetic turf system from Act Global is engineered to withstand years of heavy use, making it a perfect solution for the town of Meriden looking to upgrade its high school athletic stadium.
“We have been looking into synthetic turf manufacturers for some time- weighing our options if you will. After meeting the people of Act global, and you match them with their unbelievable facilities and product, it was an obvious decision to team up with them! We look forward to building the field at Jefferson West and we can’t express how excited we are about future projects” -Jake Farrant -KTX Sports Construction, LLC owner.
“The Jefferson West School District is excited and proud to be working with both Act Global and the SMG-managed Superdome, and to have the opportunity to install an NFL quality field in our community for our students. We anticipate that the quality of this turf field will provide many benefits to our student-athletes, band, cheer and dance squads, as well as our community at large. On behalf of the Jefferson West school district, I want to thank Act Global, the SMG-managed Superdome, and KTX Sports Construction for putting together this opportunity to provide a top-quality turf field for our students and community” - Pat Happer, Superintendent.
Act Global would like to thank KTX Sports Construction for organizing this exceptional project.
