Griffin Structures Named to Placer Valley Sports Complex Team: Firm’s Northern California Office on Early Development Team

ROSEVILLE, Calif.–Griffin Structures, the program and construction management firm, was selected as a member of the design/pre-construction team for Placer Valley Sports Complex. The $35 million, 55-acre regional sports park, to be built in the City of Roseville, will feature ten synthetic turf fields for youth and amateur soccer, lacrosse, football, rugby and other field sports in an area already popular for recreation and regional sports tournaments. Griffin will work with Coastal Partners LLC and architecture firm LPA Sacramento.

“Griffin Structures is pleased to be part of the team planning this unique public-private partnership,” Roger Torriero, Griffin Structures CEO, said. “Griffin Structures’ Northern California office is eager to contribute to what will undoubtedly become a model for team sports facilities serving both community leagues and regional tournament competitors.”

The City of Roseville will contribute the land and $5 million for the project. Placer Valley Tourism, the regional nonprofit entity that will build and operate the park, is a partnership of 23 hotels in the cities of Roseville, Rocklin and Lincoln. The hotels approved a room fee assessment that will cover debt service on a $30 million bond issue which, in combination with the City of Roseville investments, will fund construction.

“This great community recreation amenity also brings forth other economic benefits,” Torriero said. “Through visitor dollars spent, the project will result in increases in municipal revenues—revenues that fund public safety, libraries and other key city services,” Torriero added. “This innovative, collaborative community investment will pay dividends for decades.”

Scheduled to open in early 2018, the complex will also include picnic and play areas; an internal loop trail and connection to a regional trial system; a building for concessions, restrooms and offices; warm-up areas; and parking for 850 vehicles. The pre-construction team also includes contractors Roebbelen Contracting of El Dorado Hills, OC Jones & Sons of Berkeley and Valley Crest Landscape of Sacramento.
