Sand-dressed Artificial Turf Pitch for Hockey and Football

Tarmacadam Multi-use Games Area

Working closely with main contractor Willmott Dixon, S&C Slatter were required to build a sand-dressed artificial turf pitch for hockey and football, complying with FIH National Performance Standard, with an adjacent tarmacadam multi-use games area for netball and tennis.

For the hockey and football pitch, a high performance 18mm sand-dressed monofilament artificial turf playing surface, with an in-situ bound rubber performance layer, was installed over a tarmacadam engineered sub-base. In addition to the provision of a rigid panel perimeter sports fence, the new facility called for a special heavy duty acoustic fencing system to be included within the scheme.

The project was successfully completed to a very tight time schedule, where speed of construction had to be supported by care and efficiency in dealing with the logistical and planning challenges presented by the brief.
