Blakedown Sport & Play were employed by Hampshire County Council to transform a disused 'redgra' play area into a state-of-the-art 3G artificial turf sports pitch at Toynbee School in Eastleigh.
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.
The selected playing surface was Tiger Turf's Challenger 40mm 3G turf suitable for both football and hockey. The pitch was laid onto a top specification Brock shockpad and the project completed with 3.6m high fencing and a full floodlighting scheme.
