The Broward County School Board and the City of Hallandale Beach joined in an unprecedented effort to bring Hallandale High School a long overdue track and stadium.
In partnership with the City of Hallandale Beach and Hallandale High School, the School Board of Broward County allocated funds to the City of Hallandale Beach to build a much-needed track and stadium. Giving the funding directly to the City enabled them to hire RDC to Design-Build the facility and cut years off the completion time.
Since the City had recently engaged RDC to improve their citywide sports and recreational facilities through a $3.2 million bond issue, it seemed natural to hire the firm to handle this project as well.
Part renovation and part new construction, the project includes demolishing an existing six-lane track six feet to the south and building a new cushioned nine-lane track six feet away. Add to that a new football/soccer field, seating for 2,500, Musco high-mast lighting and a press box, and you’ve got a stadium ready for prime time.
The Deerfield Beach High School project includes: a 400 meter 8-lane resilient surface track with shot put, discus, high jump, long jump and pole vault field events; new Bermuda 419 sports turf and irrigation; 3,000 home bleacher seating 2,000 visitor bleacher seating; ADA accessible press box; scoreboard; 3,626sf concession restroom building with separate facilities for home, visitor students and spectators, landscaping and site lighting.
