What They Say

"The SCG organization was very helpful thorough during the entire Field Procurement process. They helped us immensely with final design details to provide us what we really wanted that would fit our needs. The final product exceeds all our expectations for performance as well as aesthetics."

Tony DiGeronimo
Member of Independence Stadium Foundation, Independence High School, OH

"We were searching out a replacement over a year ago. SCG was one of the first contractors we called. Everyone we talked with raved about SCG's business, knowledge, experience and integrity. They were more than willing to give us guidance on the path we needed to take, and that says a lot about a company. The benefit was professional, hands on, knowledgeable, real education about the entire process. We felt comfortable because they explained the process in its entirety. Anytime we went to SCG in the process, they helped us out. They have been excellent!"

Tim Armelli
Athletic Director, Chardon High School, OH

"We liked the turf because, number one, it came in at a good price, but we also wanted it because of the weight - 48 ounces versus 36 ounces - which has more fibers and all rubber infill. We host 60 to 70 events a year - our field gets a lot of use, and we thought it was the better product."

George Cardone
Assistant Superintendent for Secondary Education, Altoona School District

"The SCG team was incredibly accommodating and helpful throughout the process. They gave us great information on how best to care for the new field after installation and better understand how to prepare the field for the future."

Paul Siegwarth
Assistant General Manager, Lake Erie Crushers

"SCG made us feel that installing a perfect field was as important to them as it was to us, and in the end that's what we have. They did a tremendous job installing our field and involved us in every aspect of construction. They started construction when they said they would and finished construction when promised."

Beth Bosman
Head Field Hockey Coach, Duke University

"I have met with SCG on several occasions and they were extremely knowledgeable about the different brands and styles of turf. They were helpful and answered all of my questions and concerns."

Todd Osborne
Athletic Director, Revere High School, OH

"After watching the site work and installation in action, it is clear to see why SCG continues to do work for major universities and professional athletic teams. The important thing is that SCG really knows what they are doing. From the foreman to the office and all the way through, they're experts in the field of construction... As superintendent I've been involved in several construction projects. These guys are good - they ran into a couple of surprises... they found them in a timely manner and provided the least costly solution to resolve them."

Clint Keener
Superintendent, Bay Village School District

"SCG lead the charge for the whole project - they did the sub base work and oversaw the two different turf installation crews. With them having control at that level, everything went smoothly - almost flawlessly. They came in with a solid design plan and the ability to modify it, if needed... One of the problems that surfaced was a drainage issue with a sidewalk. They worked through it with us, providing a great solution - cost efficiently. SCG is a leader in playing field construction. They're at the top of our list for any future projects."

Bill Harrington
Senior Associate Director of Athletics and Recreation, Johns Hopkins University


"The detailed work, the solutions to numerous challenges SCG had to come up with quickly and efficiently are unlike anything I've ever seen. We have what looks like a minor league baseball field and a track that's used by some of the world's most elite runners - the whole thing is incredible. SCG went to amazing lengths in the development of this high acclaimed athletic facility. The entire team is incredibly good and incredibly professional. I would put my name next to any project SCG is a part of. I have much confidence in their work."

Bob DeFelice
Athletic Director & Baseball Coach, Bentley College

"We have the nicest field hockey facility in the country as far as I'm concerned. I am very impressed with the diligence of the SCG team, as they worked through the rain to get the job completed on deadline. I am raving about the field - and there are so many things to rave about: the sub base, the drainage system, the padding, wow!"

Char Morett
Head Field Hockey Coach, Penn State University

"My clients are relying on me to get the job done. With SCG I know they'll always come through, even under difficult circumstances. And they'll do so at a reasonable price. I've found them to be very very professional - diligent and experienced - which is key in our business. They're a proven commodity. We brought in the best sports field contractor in the country - and it was a knock-out!"

Dan Almond
RLA, Millennium Sports Technologies, Inc.

"When we were reviewing your reference prior to the project starting all of them gave you excellent reviews. I now know firsthand why that was the case. Every aspect of the project was carefully thought out, planned, and executed flawlessly. SCG Fields gave the people of Wicomico County a Stadium they can be very proud of."

Chuck Poole
Superintendent of Parks, Wicomico County, MD

"This [Ballpark of the Palm Beaches] was a bear of a project that only a group of top professional companies in this industry could pull off in the time frame allowed and with the quality that MLB demands. SCG is a top notch company that is professional, reliable, and works as hard as it takes to bring it across the finish line. The coordination to bring in a complex like this in on time is difficult for any construction management firm. Having a builder like SCG on board makes it a lot easier. From the management of this company to the guys in the field, SCG gets what it takes to build a park in the big leagues."

Jack McGowan
Senior Project Manager, AECOM Hunt

"We were exceptionally pleased with the performance of your team for the scope of the work that was done. Communication, a caring attitude and the willingness to always listen and answer questions and concerns were first class. We could not have asked for a better group to partner with in completing the base work for this project."

Chad Griffin
Athletic Director, Calvary Day School

"From administration to the actual technicians, their professionalism and attention to detail was evident from the beginning of the project; the experience superseded our expectations. We look forward to working together alongside SCG for many years ahead."

Derrick Corker
Recreation & Cultural Arts Director, City of North Miami

"[SCG] is of high integrity and moral standards. SCG also puts the customer first, knowing that the customer is who we work for ultimately.  We at Sporturf believe that SCG mirrors who we are and shares the same beliefs that quality and service go hand in hand. We are proud to partner with SCG on all synthetic turf needs!"

Demond Moore
Southeastern Regional Manager, Sporturf

"Great experience, great people, great final product. SCG is an absolutely first class operation!"

Bryan Koury
Athletic Director, Lorain High School

"[Without] the partnership with the Cleveland Browns and SCG we would never have had our Field of Dreams."

Jeff Hawks
Executive Director of Operations, Lorain City Schools

"In large part due to the efforts of SCG Fields on the Athletic Playing Field scopes, the Atlanta Braves Spring Training Facility was successfully completed ahead of schedule. As Construction Managers, little compares in importance to us as when a subcontractor dedicates themselves to the Project and the Team. The lack of issues brought to us by SCG Fields and the level of quality and professionalism is an indication of an outstanding company and crew."
