Santa Monica Civic Multi-Purpose Sports Field
Santa Monica, CA
RJM then prepared construction documents, specifications and estimates to include the design of a synthetic turf, multi-purpose sports field, pre-fabricated restroom building, perimeter fencing and ball containment netting, perimeter landscape with meandering decomposed granite walkways, pedestrian circulation, project signage, musco sport lighting, pedestrian walkway lighting, vehicular maintenance access, and efficient irrigation design. The site is approximately 3.5 acres in size and includes 105,000SF of synthetic turf with a drainage system designed with subsurface flat drains spaced 20’-0” OC, HDPE perimeter subdrains and a 4” drainage course section.
The facility also includes a permanent structure created by artist April Banks. “A Resurrection in Four Stanzas” by April Banks was commissioned through the City of Santa Monica’s Percent for Art Program and made possible by Cultural Affairs and Public Works Departments. The structure was fabricated by Arktura and installed by RAMCO. Photos courtesy of April Banks and Leroy Hamilton, 2021.
"In my daydreams I long for my grandparents' front yard, the stage for a story waiting to be told. With a glass of sweet tea and a giggle of gossip, we sit in the cool evening breeze, whispered from the nearby sea waves." ―April Banks, 2020
