Challenging ourselves to bring new and original ways of thinking to athletic field consulting
Grove Teates was the first in the industry to employ laser-guided grading. Alpine is a recognized innovator in the athletic field industry and has earned a reputation for producing high-quality athletic fields, both natural and artificial. Alpine’s first field was the minor baseball league field the Bowie Baysox now call home. Beginning with that first foray into athletic field construction, Alpine began to develop specialized methods and equipment for the sports field industry, and has since built or renovated over 125 professional, college, high school and municipal fields of all types.
Athletic Field Consultant
Today, Grove Teates serves as an athletic field consultant specializing in site challenges, athletic field design, field forensics, and quality issues. His expertise ranges from design and contractor oversight to performing evaluations, suggesting construction methods and value engineering. He also provides expert testimony in litigious issues.
“With our project we had several huge curve balls and we were ready to throw up our hands and give up. Alpine was able to create and invent a new way to do things and provided us guidance that was invaluable and saved our company. They looked at every angle and brainstormed constantly. They were always focused on lowering our cost and keeping things efficient and safe. They are extremely ethical and a breath of fresh air to work with. Alpine has a lot of integrity and years of knowledge. I don’t know what we would have done without them?”
