Université de Sherbrooke Stadium, QC
Carpell Surfaces installed the new Mondo Super X 720 13.5mm synthetic surface at Université de Sherbrooke Stadium in 2019. A multi-purpose stadium, it is home to the Vert & Or track and field, soccer, and football teams. The 9,600 sq meter, 8-lane track is one of the largest in Canada and will host the 2021-2022 Legion Nationals: Youth Track and Field Championships: 3-day competition for U16 and U18 athletes.
We are very proud to have been awarded the 2020 Outdoor Track Facility of the Year by the American Sports Builders Association ( ABSA) for the installation at l'Université de Sherbrooke, Quebec. ASBA regroups builders and suppliers of materials for athletic facilities and presents awards each year to facilities built by its members that best exemplify design and construction excellence.
Carpell's team provided support to the consultant for drafting plans and specifications. On-site, we supervised the removal of the old surface, scarification of the existing asphalt, the installation of the new top-layer of asphalt and work such as curbs, drainage and various repairs
We inspected the planarity of the asphalt, supervised, and participated in the leveling work. The installation of the new prefabricated surface took several weeks. We then surveyed, embedded and supervised the lineage work of athletic events. All event calculations were made by our team.
Carpell also supplied and installed a removable artificial turf from Act Global with a ProPlay shock pad from Schmitz Foam over the "D" areas for the football end-zones.
The track's impressive dimensions and unstable weather conditions presented some challenges. However, the site was ready and on time for the opening match of the university's football season end of September. Carpell completed the World Athletics « measurement report » for IAAF class-1 certification.
Carpell's team demonstrated their high level of knowledge as well as their technical expertise throughout the project. Jean François Levac, Supervlseur, Service du sport et de l'activite physique, Universite de Sherbrooke
