AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwired - May 09, 2014) - As part of the Westlake Village & Triunfo YMCA project, the client selected Austin-based contractor Hellas Construction to provide the surfacing on two baseball fields and rough grading on three fields as part of phase one for the project consisting of three phases. The new park and YMCA will serve 20,000 area residents annually, enriching and strengthening the quality of life in the region.
"The project is a cornerstone in the community serving all generations from babies to older adults and we are excited about the addition of the athletic fields that will be used by our residents," said Ronnie Stone, Executive Director of the Triunfo YMCA.
The joint project will result in a stunning new 18-acre site in Westlake Village housing a new active park along with the Triunfo YMCA family center located on the north side of Thousand Oaks Boulevard, west of Lindero Canyon Road. The project has been in the making for over ten years due to it being a one-of-a-kind collaborative project with three entities including the Canyon Oaks Homeowner's Association, the YMCA, and the City of Westlake Village. The City and YMCA are undertaking a joint fundraising campaign to cover the costs of their planned improvements. In addition, billionaire David Murdock contributed a $10 million donation, which helped fund the startup costs for the new YMCA.
"With our recent work at Oaks Christian High School, we are excited to be back in Westlake Village, California, and be part of this development for the City and YMCA. It's projects like this that truly showcase our capabilities of providing in-house design build services," said Reed Seaton, President & CEO, Hellas Construction.
Hellas Construction was able to save the client about $400,000 by their strong capabilities of providing all services required under the contract in-house with their own resources. Phase one of the three phase project included the three baseball/softball fields and soccer/football field as part of the project using one of the most reliable synthetic turf systems available, Matrix® Turf.

We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It doe...

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time. In his session at Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, Product and Marketing at Tintri, wil...

Enterprises have been using both Big Data and virtualization for years. Until recently, however, most enterprises have not combined the two. Big Data's demands for higher levels of performance, the ability to control quality-of-service (QoS), and the ability to adhere to SLAs have kept it on bare metal, apart from the modern data center cloud. With recent technology innovations, we've seen the advantages of bare metal erode to such a degree that the enhanced flexibility and reduced costs that cl...
