Turf Protection at Nippert Stadium
Nippert Stadium is the home field for the University of Cincinnati Bearcats and FC Cincinnati of the United Soccer League. It is the fifth-oldest stadium in college football. Matrax was contracted to provide a temporary site access road that would protect the sensitive synthetic turf during upgrades to the existing scoreboard structure involving micro-pile foundations, reinforced concrete, and structural steel members. Matrax supplied and installed a robust timber mat access road measuring approximately 250 linear feet to support a heavy boom lift and micro-pile drill rig during construction operations.
