We appreciate that these are uncertain times for everyone, and these particular projects showcase how we have delivered cutting-edge new sports facilities for clients at a lower cost, through sports facility refurbishment.
If you’re looking to offer new sports, require a surface upgrade for governing body accreditation, or simply need a new facility, a new build project doesn’t always have to be the answer.
Many of our clients have existing spaces for sport or recreation that are either not fit for purpose or are coming to the end of their useful life. Our in-house experts can identify where these existing spaces have the infrastructure already in place to support a refurbishment project.
With an existing facility, much of the time and cost of construction for a new artificial turf pitch or playing court can be removed from the equation, such as planning, drainage, ground excavation and sub-base construction. (Find out more about the stages of construction for a new build project here.)
While this will of course vary from project to project, based on the existing site suitability, refurbishment is generally more focused on upgrading the artificial turf system or surface in place.
Whether you want to upgrade your sand-dressed hockey pitch to a water-based hockey pitch, a macadam play area to polymeric multi-use games area or install a new 3G surface to FIFA Quality Pro standard, get in touch with our team, who can guide you on what’s possible with your existing spaces.
Take a look at some of the refurbishment projects we’ve handed over to clients in the past week:
An underused macadam multi-use games area at this school was transformed with a new polymeric surface and coating for netball and tennis.
This project was undertaken as part of a larger scope of works for the school and involved upgrading the existing sand-dressed surface to a 3G artificial turf system for football and rugby.
This project involved the construction of a new 3G artificial turf playing surface over the existing macadam surface, with markings for full and small sided football and entry level hockey.
Two sports facilities were created for this school in London by utilising an existing hardstanding space, creating 2x 3G artificial turf 5-a-side football pitches with an adjacent macadam netball and tennis court.
With our extensive in-house expertise across design, planning, construction and maintenance, S&C Slatter can advise on the best way to maximise the potential of your existing facilities for your sporting needs.
We’re committed to providing first-class facilities for top performance, maximum use and longevity.
