Abstract/Contents:Discusses the potential importance of accurately estimating the cost of constructing an athletic field, suggesting that "the great differences in price usually are dependent upon several key factors: earthmoving, drainage, sod versus seed, and irrigation." Recommends for the customer to "quantify all areas that need to be addressed before construction starts...[and] obtain the services of a design engineer." Suggests providing the contractor with all the information possible in order to receive a more accurate price estimate. Concludes that "an ill-prepared plan is more likely to sabotage the project even before construction."
