      Football Pitch Construction

      Construction of a football pitch, rugby pitch or a playing field is technically challenging and requires expertise in a number of areas.

      The specification will vary dependent on you as a client, you may be a local club with limited funds or an academy looking to install five pitches. We have experience of all types of project and will work with you to achieve a solution that best meets your timescale and budget.

      There will always be specific issues on a site, whether it be lack of drainage, undulating levels or complex soil structure. We are able to accommodate all these. We will bring our years of experience into play on your playing field, to ensure that the resulting pitch is fit for purpose.

      Our method for your pitch construction typically consists of the some or all of the following activities:

      • Site visit / survey
      • Project design
      • Health & Safety considerations
      • Method statements and risk assessments
      • Site management
      • Surface excavation
      • Groundworks
      • Primary and / or secondary drainage
      • Ameliorate topsoil, Rootzone and sports sand
      • Laser level
      • Cultivations
      • Spread sports grade turf or grass seed
      • Grow in period
