Bush Construction begins work on a new community asset

Bush Construction is proud to be involved in the building of phase one of the St. Vincent’s Athletic Complex—a complex that includes two football, soccer and lacrosse competition fields, as well as a softball field and small concession stand.

This is the first phase of a multi-phase project that will enhance the experience of the students and athletes using the facilities. The natural-turf softball field as well as the other synthetic turf competition fields currently under construction feature a sophisticated sub-drain system which controls the ponding of water on the fields, allowing students greater use of the fields—even during weather events.

 The project is currently under construction on the 13 acre site adjacent to Assumption High School in Davenport and will be used by Assumption High School and St. Ambrose University as a location to hold their sporting events without having to travel to an off-site location—keeping the safety of the athletes and students in mind as they can now walk to participate in the events, rather than drive. Building facilities closer to the schools will also allow for greater attendance at sporting events as well.

Not only will the transformation of the land create better facilities and a safer athletic environment for the students at Assumption High School and surrounding schools, but will also provide a new space for the community to use as well.

“This project is transforming 13 acres in downtown Davenport and turning it into a space that benefits the whole region,” said Ryan Welborn, Project Manager at Bush Construction.

 The team at Bush Construction worked hand-in-hand with the leadership at Assumption High School on upfront items to assure the success of the project and to ensure a smooth, timely and pleasant process for all involved.

“Bush Construction is proud to be involved in another great addition to our community,” said Welborn. “Our team loves to be a part of long-standing positive relationships with our communities and neighbors, and enjoys helping to keep our community attractive for the next generation.”

Phase one of the St. Vincent’s Athletic Complex is estimated to be completed in the spring of 2016, with the second phase of a larger stadium construction following shortly afterwards.
