Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation | CSX Field at Baybrook Park
Lewis Contractors partnered with The Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation and the CSX Foundation in the construction of CSX Field at Baybrook Park, an athletic field which is now home to the Benjamin Franklin High School Bayhawks. The site incorporates a multipurpose, high school regulation-sized football/soccer field with fully synthetic turf. The field was developed to be utilized by both the high school and the surrounding community. This project was the 12th field to be completed by Lewis for the Ripken Foundation in the past ten years.
The existing fields has significant grades that had to be investigated during in preconstruction and handled in construction without incurring significant haul away costs for the Owner. In the case of the CSX field, Lewis was able to successfully cut and fill the grade to achieved a balanced site with no haul away necessary.
