ASBA Honors Distinguished Sports Facilities

ASBA announced the winners of its annual awards. Awards are presented each year to facilities built by ASBA members, which best exemplify construction excellence.

Awards are presented in various categories: Tennis Courts, Running Tracks, Sports Fields, Track and Field Facilities and Indoor Multi-Purpose Field Houses. Within each category there are divisions; for example, the Tennis Court category recognizes facilities in Indoor, Residential and Outdoor divisions. Additional honors are given in the ‘Green’ competition, for award-winning athletic facilities that use the most eco-friendly design, construction and operating techniques.

Presentation of award plaques was made at the Technical Meeting, recently held in Orlando, Florida. Projects are scored individually based on considerations such as layout and design, site work, drainage, base construction, surface, amenities, innovation and overall impression. Winning entries are those whose cumulative scores meet or exceed the standard.
