From Buckeye to Scottsdale, Willmeng Construction is currently working on numerous park projects across Arizona. Three projects stand at the forefront: Sundance Park, Countryside Park, and the Scottsdale Civic Center renovation.
Sundance Park is a 68-acre two-phase project located in Buckeye, Arizona. In phase I, the project includes a 400,000 cubic-yard mass grading, a 3.2-acre fishing lake, a splash pad, a playground, two basketball courts, four multi-use soccer fields, a skate and bicycle park, and support facilities. The park is meant to provide quality, outdoor spaces for the community to gather and connect.
The park will also have two large ramadas suitable for public gatherings and a slew of small of smaller ramadas placed around the lake and fields to accommodate more intimate gatherings.
A large open area adjacent to the take will serve as an additional gathering space, hosting performances, event, markets, and private parties.
Phase I ends with broad walking paths that encircle the perimeter of the park, while Phase II will have expanded parking capacity and traffic control.
Countryside Park is a 12-acre athletic complex that borders Countryside Recreation Center and Elementary School. The park will consist of eight multi-use soccer fields, a new 1,500 square-foot restroom, an irrigation pond, and a lake feed line to support the increased sports activity in Surprise. With the project bordering the elementary school, portions of the work had to be completed in an expedited timeframe during the school’s summer break.
Scottsdale Civic Center
Scottsdale Civic Center is being renovated to accommodate the Super Bowl LVII events at State Farm Stadium. The nine-acre site renovation includes enhanced open space for businesses, residents, and visitors in the heart of Old Town Scottsdale. The renovation adds new amenities and upgrades to utility infrastructure. Recreational features include two custom amphitheaters, a splash pad, and a play area.
Willmeng managed to minimize any impacts to surrounding businesses and hotels and allowed them to remain open and conduct their business in as normal an environment as possible.
A majority of this project is being constructed over the Drinkwater Bridge and the Willmeng team have managed not to impact the underlying bridge decking or other structural elements.
