IRB '22 Standard 3G Rugby Pitch

Blakedown Sport & Play completed work at Myerscough College in Preston on a brand new 3rd Generation rugby and football pitch using Edel ‘Touchdown 65’ artificial turf.

Building on a ‘green field’ site, extensive excavation works took place to allow for a new drainage system. The ground was then levelled, and perimeter kerbing and a geo-textile membrane installed. The sports turf was laid onto a Dynamic base of stone, with in-situ shockpad for impact absorption.

Client: Myerscough College

Contract Type: JCT with CD

Value: £530,000

Build Time: 14 weeks

The 120m x 75m pitch was constructed to FIFA 1 Star & IRB Regulation 22 standards, and completed with floodlighting and weld mesh fencing. Surrounding landscaping was carried out to finish off the development.

Location: Bilsborrow, Preston, PR3 0RY
