UNC Chapel Hill Finley Fields North Track and Field Complex
Running with Rameses – UNC Chapel Hill Finley Fields North Track and Field Complex
In April, 2017, Romeo Guest Associates, Inc. broke ground for UNC Chapel Hill to begin construction of their new Track and Field Complex. The first phase of this project includes an NCAA 8-lane track with synthetic surfacing, LED sports lighting, storage and team weather shelters, two synthetic multipurpose soccer and lacrosse fields, new paved parking lot, as well as supporting utilities. This track is being built at the former Finley Practice Fields near Finley Golf Course. Due to existing soil conditions and frequent flooding from Chapel Creek, the site was raised as much as 6’ in some areas by importing more than 50,000 cubic yards of fill material and the track base is constructed of reinforced concrete slab supported by 680 wooden timber piles. What makes this project unique is that this outdoor track is one of only a handful in the country to use this type of support system. Anticipated completion of Phase-I is scheduled for summer, 2018.
