University of Rhode Island, Bill Beck Field
CHA provided planning, design, and construction administration services for the complete renovation of Beck Baseball Field. The initial project included the removal of the existing natural grass surface and the installation of a synthetic turf surface and subsurface drainage system. Facility improvements also included new bullpens, perimeter fencing, a netted backstop, and a scoreboard. As a second phase project, CHA completed construction administration services to install a 5,000-square-foot batting tunnel building adjacent to the field. The facility is a true ‘all weather’ complex, providing the Rams with a competitive advantage over many Northeast competitors. Future improvements at Beck Baseball Field will include perimeter spectator seating and a new press box facility.
