Fort Worth Independent School District has selected Paragon Sports Constructors to renovate the running tracks at all thirteen high schools in the district this summer.
Each of the thirteen high school projects is unique but each will receive a new polyurethane track surface with structural spray coat in addition to minor work to the
asphalt underlayment, curbs, and drainage system.
“We are excited to have another opportunity to work with Fort Worth ISD on these projects. While the individual sites do not require an extensive amount of work, the
number of sites involved, especially for the time-frame allowed, requires not only a specialty track contractor but one who is able to perform this volume of work in this
timeframe,” said William Chaffe, President of Paragon Sports Constructors.
All thirteen running tracks are scheduled for completion by mid-August, in time for the new school year.
Paragon Sports Constructors has broken ground on track renovations at Babe Zaharias Stadium for Beaumont Independent School District.
Work includes demolition of the existing running track, stabilization of the sub-grade, and installation of new drainage, concrete curbs, and all-weather Conipur Sandwich
System track surface.
“Our company was founded as a running track builder and paver over 30 years ago; this project is a showcase for the skills we’ve been able to build upon since then,
making us the premier track and field builder in the region,” stated William Chaffe, President of Paragon Sports Constructors.
“We are excited to help Beaumont ISD build a new competition running track that will hopefully become a staple for district and state track meets in the region,” said Bret
Allen, VP of Sales and Marketing for Paragon Sports Constructors. “This project is a source of pride for the Beaumont community and we are proud that they showed faith
in our company to build it right.”
Paragon Sports Constructors was recommended last night to the Fort Bend Independent School District Board of Trustees for the turf
replacements at Hall Stadium and Mercer Stadium. After submitting a competitive sealed proposal, Paragon Sports Constructors was ranked first overall for best value to
the district based on price, experience, project team, and quality of product.
Work will begin the week of June 4th simultaneously on both stadiums. The projects consist of the replacement of the 10+ year old synthetic turf at Mercer Stadium and the
removal of synthetic turf, demolition and rebuild of the base, and installation of a new synthetic turf system at Hall Stadium. Both stadiums will receive Desso iDNA synthetic
“We’ve seen a trend with buyers becoming more educated when it comes to the quality of various turf products. Ft. Bend ISD has some of the first generation, noninfilled, surface draining turf fields so they took the time to research the replacement product and drainage system,” said William Chaffe, President of Paragon Sports
Constructors. “At Hall Stadium the district chose to completely remove the asphalt base and crown from the field and install a new vertically draining stone base. This is
our second project of this nature this year.”
