Being the leading provider of artificial surfacing systems, people might assume that we only work with sports pitches and areas of the synthetic variety. Nothing could be farther from the truth. We are regularly engaged with the design and installation of natural grass facilities, very often where the client needs a mix of surface types and wants a single expert to manage and deliver the whole project.
The company heritage actually lies in natural grass construction and horticulture, and many our team originally developed their design, engineering and management skills within the groundsmanship sector.
We feel this background and knowledge gives us a genuinely holistic understanding of sports facility provision and thereby grants us a unique advantage.
The programme of works for a new natural grass sports pitch could be:
Our in-house project delivery team is supported where appropriate by associate advisors who input specific specialisms to enhance our skills set and underwrite quality assurance.

Elmbridge Xcel Sports Hub
Hart Leisure Centre
You will see that as well as sports performance areas, supplementary landscaping is a regular constituent of our work. This increasingly encompasses zones which have an additional or specific role to play in the facility estate.
For instance, ecological or habitat areas are becoming a feature of many extended projects. Often this involves liaison with external specialists in
wildlife, natural history or archaeology which is something we are very happy and well-resourced to embrace.
Our in-built working practices and general contracting methodology is particularly suited to ‘sensitive’ environments requiring extra degrees of care and attention to detail.
