Landscaping and Planting
Our building experience has a vast range from installing new pre-fabricated steel buildings and masonry buildings from the ground up to additions and renovations on existing buildings spanning across commercial offices, educational, institutional, industrial, medical, restaurants, and retail. We have also done stadium renovations including bleachers, restrooms, and press boxes.
In addition, we've built many new parks and have renovated existing parks which were in need of an update or new amenities. The extent of the renovations varies from complete demolition for a different use, such as turning old swimming pools into spray parks, to simply converting them and upgrading them with a new landscape design.

Sports Field Construction
Grass and Turf Fields:
Plavchak Construction has experience in constructing new baseball, football, and soccer fields as well as repairing the grades of existing fields.
By using laser and GPS guided equipment, we are able to achieve the optimal slope for drainage based on existing conditions. This helps to prevent ponding water and washout of valuable infield mix material, which results in fields that require very less maintenance and frequent repair.
Deck Hockey and Tennis Courts:
In addition to grass and turf fields, we have also built and renovated many deck hockey rinks and tennis courts.
Our deck hockey experience includes the installation of a variety of dasher board systems and playing surfaces including asphalt and multiple types of composite decking surfaces.
In addition to building new tennis courts, we have also renovated many existing courts. This includes resurfacing as well as installation of new netting and equipment.
