ABERDEEN SPORTS VILLAGE
McArdle Sport Tec were delighted to be selected to provide two 3G pitches, an all-weather hockey pitch and a large athletics facility at Aberdeen Sports Village.
As part of a large construction project at Aberdeen Sports Village we were chosen to construct two full size 3G football pitches, a water-based hockey pitch and an athletics facility comprising of an indoor track and outdoor athletics tracks. The aim of the project was to provide the best indoor athletics facility in the North of Scotland.
Indoor Athletics: The indoor area comprises a bright blue, 135m six-lane running straight, with specific, fully-equipped areas for long and triple jump, high jump and pole vault. The indoor area also provides a state-of-the-art indoor throws cage, providing training opportunities for hammer, discuss, shot putt and javelin.
Outdoor Athletics: The outdoor area comprises of a 400m eight-lane running track.
Football: We installed a full-size indoor 3G football pitch, which was the first of its kind in the UK. The requirement was that the pitch could be split into three separate sections for community hire. Each section measures 60m x 32m.
Hockey: We construced a full-size FIH Global accredited hockey pitch adjacent to the outdoor athletics track. The water-based surface measured 97 x 61m and is complete with a full irrigation system, meeting the requirements for international hockey.
Our works at Aberdeen Regional Sports Village totalled over £1,000,000.
The stadium at Aberdeen Regional Sports Centre bears the name of the former vice-Chairman of the Aberdeen Football Club, who was an educational and sporting visionary and the driving force that helped take Aberdeen Footbal Club to the peak of European football in the 1980’s
