Sand-filled hockey and football pitch

Wellington College employed Blakedown Sport & Play to install a new full-size sand-filled (astroturf) pitch for hockey and football. The construction involved excavating a large volume of soil, installing a new drainage system, constructing an engineered double-layer tarmac base, laying a 15mm in-situ rubber shockpad, and laying the synthetic turf.

  • Client: Wellington College
  • Contract Type: JCT CD
