Shaw Sports Turf installs its largest field logo yet

February 7, 2013  - By

gI_129240_DRA650Shaw Sports Turf, a division of Shaw Industries, a Berkshire Hathaway company, recently completed one of its most unusual installations to date at Diamond Ranch Academy (DRA) in Hurricane, Utah. The 74,100-sq.-ft. installation for the youth residential treatment center was completed with Shaw Sports Turf’s Momentum turf system, known for its durability and overall performance.

Spanning a total of 16,000 sq. ft., the center field logo at DRA is the largest logo pattern Shaw Sports Turf has ever installed. The logo design features a black-and-yellow diamond snake pattern in the center of the field stretching from end zone to end zone, signifying the home of the Diamond Ranch Razor Backs. This specific installation is especially unusual in that it consists of an all-rubber infill, utilizing no sand to further increase athlete safety while remaining environmentally friendly.

DRA is a premier youth residential treatment center for troubled teens ages 12-18. DRA has four separate campuses divided by age and gender—located on 60 acres in Utah’s beautiful color country. They are dedicated to helping troubled teen and their families make lasting, life-long changes in a safe, controlled and loving environment.

“This was a very unique installation not only because of the creative logo opportunity, but because of the tremendous services this school offers,” said Chuck McClurg, Shaw Sports Turf vice president of sales. “We are humbled to be part of the enhancements to the recreational program at Diamond Ranch Academy.”

In addition to DRA, Shaw Sports Turf has been installed in more than a dozen schools and facilities throughout the state of Utah, such as Davis High School in Kaysville, Clearfield High School in Clearfield and Olympus High School in Holladay.
