WSU Selects Brock International

Washington State University selected Brock International to provide the supplemental pad systems used underneath its new synthetic turf intramural playing fields. Brock PowerBase, the only Cradle to Cradle Certified CM product in the synthetic turf industry, is a shock pad and drainage layer that reduces the likelihood of traumatic brain injury by up to 50 percent when compared to typical synthetic turf over a stone base.

The project included renovation of more than 450,000 square feet of natural turf fields to multi-purpose synthetic turf fields at two campus locations -- Valley Road and Grimes Way playfields.

Valley Road Playfield Complex was designed to accommodate seven sports including softball, soccer, lacrosse (men’s and women’s), rugby, ultimate Frisbee and flag football.
