We were approached by Marlborough College to reconstruct two of their existing near full-size artificial pitches.
The turf was to be laid upon a 15mm in-situ shock pad upon an engineered macadam base.
To meet FIH standards we carefully selected TigerTurf UK’s EvoPro carpet for both pitches.
The college had specified a blue playing surface surrounded with a green run-off area.
The project involved removing the old carpet on each pitch, designing and installing a new drainage system, designing and installing a new sub-base and replacing the kerbing. To complete the project, the existing floodlighting system was removed and replaced with an 8 column, ultra-low glare 300 LUX system. The fencing was replaced and re-aligned and new kickboards were installed.
The project totalled approximately £640,000 and work was finished in the summer of 2013, on-time and within budget.
