ESPN WIDE WORLD OF SPORTS COMPLEX EXPANSION
Location: Lake Buena Vista, Florida
Completion Date: April 2013
Phillips & Jordan Role: Prime Contractor
The ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex is a 220 acre athletic complex located within the Walt Disney World Resort which includes nine venues that host numerous amateur and professional sporting events throughout the year. Phillips & Jordan was contracted to complete two projects involving expansion of the Hess Sports Fields portion of the complex and expansion of the complex parking facilities.
Work scope elements for the Hess Sports Fields project involved site preparation work including clearing and grubbing; installation of turbidity barriers in existing water detention ponds; excavation and grading of new water detention ponds; rough grading of new athletic fields; and installation of interconnected stormwater drainage piping, a lift station with force main, and an irrigation system. The new athletic fields were then laser graded to finish elevations and planted with Bermuda sod on all playing surfaces. Work scope elements for the complex parking facilities project involved completion of all required permitting, installation of erosion controls, clearing of approximately 2 acres of land, and placement and grading of crushed concrete.
