University of Tennessee at Martin – Football Field Renovations Show Details
Bob Safin, PE
TLM Associates, Inc. was hired by the University of Tennessee at Martin to design a new surface for Hardy M. Graham Stadium to replace a worn and higher maintenance grass field. The field improvements required a new under drain storm water system to allow the field to quickly disperse rainfall. TLM Associates, Inc. was retained to provide planning, pre-design cost estimating, design, construction administration, construction observation, and closeout for this project.
The $750,000 project began in April of 2008 and was completed in July of the same year. During the design phase of this project, TLM Associates engineers and University of Tennessee Martin Athletics representatives studied in-depth a variety of field turf options to determine the best fit for the UT Martin Skyhawks. The result was a state-of-the-art turf system often found on larger college campuses and NFL fields throughout the country. Sporting the University of Tennessee Skyhawks “Captain” logo at mid-field, the finished field is a great source of pride for the University of Tennessee at Martin.
