Construction is underway at the campus of New Tech High School in Gary, Indiana. The Korte Company was awarded the $6.8 million Design-Build project, which includes multiple improvements to the school’s outdoor athletic facilities.
Improvements include the construction of a new main entry plaza featuring pavers and ornamental fencing, a concession building with restroom facilities, a community building, an equipment storage facility as well as home and visitor ticket booths.
The football and track area upgrades include a new synthetic turf football field with play clocks, a video display scoreboard, stadium lighting, renovated grandstand seating and the addition of a visitor seating and a new press box. A new, 9-lane track with a timing system will circle the playing field.
A turf drainage system will be added to the existing baseball field along with a new infield. The baseball and softball field fencing, scoreboards and bleachers will be replaced along with new press boxes, batting cages and bullpens.
The tennis court restoration includes new court surfacing, newly constructed restroom facilities as well as new equipment, sports lighting and fencing.
The existing parking area will be resurfaced and will include additional lighting and a barrier arm gate. Perimeter ornamental fencing will enclose the complex.
