3G Football and Hockey Pitch

Derbyshire County Council employed Blakedown to install a full-size 3G football and hockey pitch at Glossopdale Community College. The playing surface chosen for the artificial turf pitch was TigerTurf’s Challenger laid onto an engineered tarmac base with shockpad.

  • Client: Derbyshire County Council
  • Contract Type: JCT Standard
  • Contract Value: £530,000
  • Build Time: 16 weeks

As well as the main hockey and football layout, three cross-play 7-a-side football pitches were seamed into the turf and divider netting rails installed to section off each mini pitch. The completed project differed slightly from the original plans: the pitch was relocated by a few metres to save a protected tree. The pitch is also fenced with heavy-duty twinbar and has a full floodlighting system.
