Installation of the Mondo Super X 720 athletics track / Summer 2019
We had the pleasure of working with Les surfaces Securitaires Carpell Inc. and their team to replace our exterior track surface at the University of Sherbrooke stadium. The project consisted in supplying and installing a Mondo Super X 720 athletic track surface, an Olympic quality surface. Once the work was completed, the surface as well as the marking and line painting of the events, it was certified World athletics class-1, the highest certification attributable to an athletic installation by the IAAF. Les surfaces Securitaires Carpell inc. demonstrated their high-level of knowledge as well as their technical expertise throughout the project
In addition, to reach the highest levels of quality, the project had to be completed within a short period of time during the summer of 2019. Les surfaces Securitaires Carpell inc. did everything in their power to respect the agreed timetable and made the necessary efforts to have the new athletics track completed before our fall football season. The owner of the business, Mr. Paul Caron, came several times in person to make sure everything was ready as planned so that the site would be fully available for our scheduled events.
We herewith recommend without hesitation Les surfaces Securitaires Carpell Inc. for the installation of the athletics track surface.

Installation of the Mondo Super X 720 athletics track / Spring 2018
Carpell Surfaces was responsible for the supply and installation of the 400 meter, eight-lane track at Varsity Stadium, University of Toronto. We are pleased to convey our complete satisfaction with the new Mondo track. Also, our appreciation for the exemplary work accomplished by Carpell Surfaces Inc. for this high profile project.
The installation had a tight time frame. Work commenced in the spring of 2018 and the track was to be completed for the NACAC Championships in early August. Construction activity was not to disturb normal operations of the University. The temperature during this period was unusually hot and humid. There was more than average traffic in downtown Toronto, where the stadium is located, making daily access to the site complicated.
Carpell met these challenges admirably. The company's level of commitment to the success of this project was first-rate. The installation ran smoothly and the track was completed on time and within budget. The onsite crews, supervised by site manager Marco Bernier, were highly professional. Their attention to safety and their mindfulness of the University's daily operations were exemplary. Indeed, good communication and positive exchanges with Carpell's entire personnel, especially Dominic Deslandes, Head of Operations, were appreciated.
The quality of our new IAAF Class 2 certified track is excellent, and serves for both high-level training and international meets.
Without hesitation, we recommend Carpell Surfaces for any future top-level track installation projects. You will be in good hands!

Installation of the Mondo Super X 720 athletics track / Spring 2018
My firm has worked with Carpell Surfaces on 7 or 8 high level tracks, including several IAAF Class A tracks. We have also worked with them on over 20 artificial turf soccer and football fields.
Most recently we oversaw the replacement track at the University of Toronto Varsity Stadium Mondo track.
This project had a very tight time frame to be completed in time for last August's NACAC 2018 track and field championships which included 600 athletes from 31 countries and 6 nations in North America, Central America, and the Caribbean.
The track used light blue and dark blue for alternating lanes, and is one of the first tracks in the western hemisphere to implement the new longer IAAF transfer lanes in a third colour (beige).
Carpell is one of the top if not the top track and artificial turf installers in North
America, and come highly recommended.
Marco Bernier, Director, Procedures and Quality and his onsite crew as well as Dominic Deslandes, Head of Operations, are to be commended for their efforts on this project and dozens of other projects completed by my firm.

This letter is to express our satisfaction with Carpell Surfaces for work completed in May 2015 installing two world-class, athletic tracks that will serve for the Toronto 2015 Pan Am / Parapan Am Games.
The high-performance Mondo track surface, installed at the CIBC Pan Am / Parapan Am Athletics Stadium at York University will be certified by the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) as a Class 1 track - suitable for hosting Olympic and other top-tier competitions. The second track located at the Toronto Track & Field Centre, will be designated Class 2 and will serve as an athlete training and warm-up facility during the Games.
I wish to highlight the exceptional work executed by Carpell Surfaces during the construction. The installation process was completed with confidence and with a very high level of professionalism. The onsite crews, under the supervision of M. Marco Bernier, performed admirably. Furthermore, Carpell met its commitments to complete both tracks on time and meet our tight deadlines. Carpell's personnel at all levels, are to be commended for the overall success of this very demanding project.
I would recommend, without hesitation Carpell Surfaces for any similarly scoped major track installation project.

Installation of a FIFA 2 Star synthetic football-soccer field / Summer 2015
Please be advised that the University of Alberta publically procured Les Surfaces Sécuritaires Carpell Inc. in April of 2015 to supply and install a new synthetic turf field at Foote Field, the official home of the University of Alberta's Golden Bears and Pandas Varsity teams. Carpell supplied a FIFA 2 star compliant product - Xtreme Turf Premier SX50 with Schmitz Proplay 20D from Act Global. Over the course of this project, I worked closely with Carpell staff in constructing what the University feels is one of the elite football fields in Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS).
Even more impressive than the end product was the performance of Les Surfaces Sécuritaires Carpell Inc. over the course of the project. From removal of the existing surface, preparation of sub-surface through final installation Carpell and staff maintained the highest level of professionalism and workmanship in what could be described as a challenging installation and site conditions. The final project was completed ahead of schedule and on budget.
We have enjoyed our working relationship with Carpell Surfaces and look forward to having an opportunity to work together on future projects. I look forward to working with Paul Caron and the Carpell team in the future and would happily recommend them for any synthetic turf installation.

Installation of three synthetic sports fields / Summer 2013
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your staff for the high degree of detail and care that your company demonstrated in installing our new synthetic fields at Thomas A. Stewart Secondary School and Fleming College. The Carpell Surfaces crew has undertaken the work with care and precision. Your team met all the timelines for these two locations, which is not always the case in such projects. The team of dedicated and experienced professionals were excellent to work with and provided exceptional customer service.
Carpell Surfaces staff performed admirably on the two seperate projects and the staff are to be commended for the overall sucess of the three artificial fields. The coaches and athletes are very pleased with the playability and performance of the Xtreme Turf SX40 artificial turf fields. Our community is extremely proud of the fields.
We have enjoyed our working relationship with Carpell Surfaces and look forward to having an opportunity to work together on future projects. In the meantime, we are pleased to recommend Carpell Surfaces for artificial synthetic turf fields projects.

Synthetic surface installation at Centre Multisport in Gatineau | May 2011
As CEO of ARSO, I want to personally thank you and your team for the work completed at the Centre multisport during the month of May. I also want to thank Mr. Marco Bernier, operations director, and Mr. Stéphane Ranger, site manager, who have collaborated closely with us since September 2010 in order to complete this project.
The installation of the two fields required complex logistics, considering the fact that work was taking place in a building with restricted access for the equipment involved. Carpell Surfaces' installation team demonstrated professionalism and competence. I am very happy with the results and I am sure that our players will be thrilled to play on these new synthetic turf fields.

Soccer / Football fields installation - Ottawa / February 2011
What can we say – except THANKS!
That single word seems so inadequate compared to the enormity of the task that you and your crews accomplished and did so in far less than ideal weather conditions – but it will have to suffice for now to sum up all of what is included below
On behalf of the Ottawa Internationals Soccer Club's Executive Board and as Chairman of our Club's Artificial Turf Committee and all of the Club's 2,500 members, I wish to thank you and your crews, Tony, Luc and the crew from NMP Golf Construction for all of the tremendous and timely work that you did to get these two fields' surfaces ready for laying and then for doing all of the work to shave and lay the two fields at Hillcrest High School and at École Secondaire Franco Cité.
Had it not been for the dedicated, hard-working, pleasant, positive and persevering attitudes of all of Carpell's and NMP's workers we would be looking at snow-covered stone fields and would be facing a winter and springtime of uncertainty and a dreaded delayed 2011 season start-up.

Soccer / Football field installation - Thunder Bay / February 2011
In 2010 the City of Thunder Bay undertook a complete rehabilitation of the Fort William Stadium. The work included replacement of the original natural turf with a new artificial turf field. Carpell Surfaces was responsible for the supply and installation of the turf surface. They were excellent to work with and provided a great customer service.
The turf field provided our minor and high school football program with a first class venue on which to showcase their talent. I would have no trouble recommending Carpell Surfaces to anyone considering an artificial turf supplier/installer.

Reconstruction project of athletic tracks - Gatineau QC / April 2010
I am pleased to share with you our great satisfaction concerning the services and products supplied to us by your company. Having the finals of the Québec Games in the city of Gatineau, during the months of July and August 2010, has been a privileged occasion for us to welcome over 4000 youths and their tutors in an atmosphere of competition, sharing and friendship.
Obviously, our sports installations had to be up to standards. Among other things, the reconstruction of our athletics infrastructure (400m tracks, long jump, high jump, pole vaulting, etc) has been a big challenge and a large scale project. To this end, I insist on emphasizing the professionalism of your team during the installation of the synthetic layer Alsatan SC, the quality of the product, as well as the precision of the work of lining for all the various events categories.
At the same time, I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for your on-going and full collaboration through the entire project, as well as your total implication. And this regardless of the tight deadline which was required to complete the site in time for the events. This was greatly appreciated
The games took place and were a total success because of partners like you. The legacy of this high quality facility in our city can only encourage citizens and organizations in their quest for excellence. Many thanks again to you and all your teams.

Soccer / Football field installation - Montreal / July 2009
I wish to highlight the exceptional work executed by Carpell Surfaces during the construction of the college football field in July 2009. The choice of an entrepreneur to do this kind of specialized work was taken with a rigorous selection procedure. Carpell Surfaces managed to stand out at this stage and obtained the contract. We are happy to confirm this was a judicious choice.
Along with the complexity of the mandate and the high quality required, the project had a very tight schedule. Carpell Surfaces lived up to the challenge, surprising everybody by finishing ahead of the initial deadline. Furthermore, it is important to emphasize the professionalism of this company and the implication of its president. On site for the entire duration of the work, he demonstrated leadership and a desire to deliver a perfect installation.
I also want to mention that the Mondo FTS Ecofill system meets all our requirements and makes all the various users happy. This unique system offers many advantages, including heat reduction on the field during hot days, which is much appreciated by players. The use of ecological granules reassures us on the harmlessness of the field and a better environmental solution, therefore contributing to the health of our youth.It is without reservation and with enthusiasm that I recommend Carpell Surfaces for the realization of major specialized projects such as the installation of synthetic turf for football/soccer.
