Derby High School – Hellas Field of the Month

Derby High School – Hellas Field of the Month

Derby High School Athletic Director, Russell Baldwin, wanted Panther Stadium to reflect the passion and care he and his staff have for their student-athletes. Having experience with other turfs, Baldwin knew he wanted a proven product from a company like Hellas Construction.

“Hellas goes above and beyond to explain why they do things and to insure the safety of our students playing and competing on their fields. Hellas has an amazing product and the final presentation is just outstanding. They are coming back to install a new synthetic track after the next football season that will be black to blend in with the new turf. Then it will really be something to see,” said Baldwin.

From the design process to actual completion, Hellas worked with Derby High School to insure the field was completed to the highest of standards.

“Working with Hellas was very easy and smooth from beginning to end. Their professionalism throughout was phenomenal and we are very satisfied,” said Baldwin. “They treat you with respect. What I mean is that school districts are not experts on turf and installation no matter how many “turf” classes we have taken. They talked to us and explain everything little thing that goes with the process, not just the big things. They want you to learn exactly what they are doing so the next time becomes easier.”
