What's a Woolpert? Episode 2: Turf Systems

So, What’s a Woolpert anyway?

It’s not a what, but a who. Specifically, it is the collection of whos that comprise Woolpert—the premier architecture, engineering, and geospatial (AEG) firm.

What’s a Woolpert enables our thought leaders to add insight to current events and perspective to new technologies that impact the natural, built, and social environments around us. From water legislation to turf systems, satellite advancements to the buzz of AI, join us as we share work and personal experiences, connect the dots within our increasingly interconnected world, and brainstorm solutions to widespread challenges so we can all get smarter together.

For our second What’s a Woolpert podcast, we talk to our resident turf expert Todd Ford, PE, LEED AP, on the engineering behind field playability, safety, maintenance, and competitive advantage. Todd shares the benefits and challenges of natural turf vs. artificial turf at every level of play, from rec teams through the pros across multiple sports. He also talks about the new types of environmentally friendly in-fills, one of which had our host Dan Michalec reaching for his EpiPen.
