TIPS Construction Project Spotlights

Hellas Construction for Arkadelphia School District

Project Overview: 

Hellas installed its Matrix Helix synthetic turf and Cushdrain system for Arkadelphia School District. This turf option is trusted by K-12 schools, collegiate programs, and NFL teams across the nation because of the natural grass playing experience it provides. The field conversion included a very colorful blue and red color scheme with school logo. They added all regulation soccer lines as well as high jump and long jump areas.

Quote from Ruth Hawley, National Cooperative Contracts Manager for Hellas Construction:

“Our experience was great while working with Arkadelphia School District on the turfing of their football field and we are very proud of the success they had in their first year playing on it. Thank you TIPS for making this process easier.”

“I have nothing but positive things to say about Hellas Construction and the TIPS program. First, we contracted with Hellas Construction to redo our turf surface on our football field that was originally installed improperly by another company. Everyone from the sales rep down to the laborers ripping up and installing the new turf surface were very knowledgeable, professional and courteous with all of our staff. They were very knowledgeable about their product and the correct way to install it to give us one of the best playing surfaces in Arkansas. The same can be said for my experience with the TIPS purchasing program. Everyone was very helpful and knowledgeable about the process and helped walk me through the approval process to make sure we had all the proper documentation to make this project go as smoothly as possible. I highly recommend Hellas Construction and the TIPS purchasing system as well.”
