overview
Overview
  • School Sports Field
    • Main use: Football
    • Other uses: Soccer, Band, PE, etc.
  • Size of field: Football regulation size
    • 75,000 square feet
  • Two types of “grass” to choose:
    • Real
    • Artificial
  • Fixed Output Situation
considerations
Considerations

Real Grass

  • Less Expensive to Install
  • Softer/Cooler
  • Frequent Watering
  • Less Durable
  • More Variables to Consider

Artificial Turf

  • Higher Installation Cost
  • Less Regular Maintenance
  • Infrequent Watering
  • Always Green
  • Stronger than Regular Grass

Cash Flow Comparison

-Notice Spikes In Artificial Turf

-Real Grass Has a Higher Maintenance Cost

-Fixed Output

-Which Will Have A Lower EUAC???

-Artificial Turf Has A Set Maintenance Cost

-Intersect At $45000

-Reasonable Scenario

Sensitivity Analysis - Income

-Real Grass Capped Around 50K

-Likely Scenario

-Intersect At: Income - $85000

EUAC $90646

-District Regulations Vary

conclusion
Conclusion
  • Artificial Turf Has An Advantage IF:
    • Field time can be sold
    • Field is heavily used
    • Price of water increases
  • Real Grass Is Still a Viable Option
  • Based upon our Equivalent Uniform Annual Cost Analysis, Artificial Turf has an Economic Advantage over Real Grass in Given Conditions.
