Two NCAA Division I universities with Mondo track surfaces honored by ASBA for excellence in sports facility construction
CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa. - Dec. 11, 2017 - PRLog -- Two NCAA Division I universities with Mondo track surfaces have been honored for excellence in sports construction by the American Sports Builders Association. They are University of South Carolina and Clemson University, South Carolina.
USC's Sheila and Morris Cregger Track won the Outstanding Outdoor Track Facility of the Year Silver Award, while Clemson University's indoor track facility won the Outstanding Indoor Track Facility of the Year Award—the highest honor in the category.
Both universities installed Mondo Super X 720 track surfaces. Made by Mondo, the global leader in the track and field, indoor sport and contract flooring markets, Super X 720 is engineered for speed and comfort. It provides the optimal blend of energy return, comfort, safety and durability for everything from daily training to the toughest competitions. Strong vulcanized rubber provides optimum traction while a unique textured bottom layer generates a cushion of air for extreme comfort and allows swifter transitions as the foot rolls from the 5th to the 1st metatarsus.
Green and sustainable, Super X 720 is:
--GREENGUARD Gold-certified for better indoor air quality;
--Granular-free for healthy waterways;
--Heavy metal-free and will not leach into the environment;
--Bacterial, microbacterial and fungal resistant; and
Medallion Athletics Products, Inc., a general contractor based in Mooresville, N.C., that sells and installs Mondo products, installed both surfaces.
ASBA, of which Mondo is a member, is the national organization for builders, designers and suppliers of materials for athletic facilities. Awards are presented each year to facilities built by ASBA members that best exemplify construction excellence. Presentation of 2017 awards was made at the ASBA Technical Meeting last week. A panel of ASBA members anonymously judged entries. Projects were scored individually based on considerations such as layout and design, site work, drainage, base construction, surface, amenities, innovation and overall impression. Winning entries' cumulative scores met or exceeded the standard.
