The Conseils des écoles catholiques du Centre-Est (CECCE) and the Ottawa International Soccer Club undertook a joint venture to develop a new artificial turf soccer field.
- An existing soccer field was converted to an artificial turf field with extensive upgrades to site lighting, fencing, granular drainage layers, and storm sewers.
- The granular areas under the field are storm water management holding areas.
- Power for the upgraded lighting came from the main electrical room in the school.
- The site was finished with the artificial turf, new goal posts, and sodding/seeding.
