Affectionately known locally
as the ‘Banana Pitch’, from the images attached it’s no secret that this Colwyn
Bay football facility could benefit from improvements. And NTS are delighted to
have been appointed as specialist consultants to oversee these works from start
As part of the feasibility
works, a targeted soil sampling process was carried out with site samples being
sent for laboratory analysis to evaluate a range of soil physical and chemical
characteristics. This information enabled an accurate project budget indication
to be arrived at. In addition to this a works programme was put together to
provide our client a clear picture of the duration of the proposed construction
works and when the new pitch will be available for use.
Using in-house CAD design
software, NTS were then able to provide accurate plans which proved
particularly useful when ascertaining proposed finished levels and how this
would tie in with the surround land.
NTS are looking forward to seeing the project through to completion.
NTS are pleased to have been selected as consultant to
oversee much needed improvement works to sports pitches at The Fieldgate
The existing site includes a
cricket square and outfield, full size rugby pitch and two junior football
pitches. Poor drainage hinders the usage of the area, particularly during the
winter months when waterlogged conditions often prevent play.
A detailed project specification
has been developed in order to address the drainage issues and establish a
robust grass surface favourable for winter usage. The specification is based on
the highest level category of the IOG Performance Quality standards.
Works will comprise installation
of primary and secondary drainage, surface cultivations and grass surface
establishment. Importantly the contract will also incorporate a 12 month period
of post construction maintenance.
A formal tender process has been carried out with NTS analysing each contractor bid. Works are expected to commence onsite in Autumn 2019.
We are delighted to announce the launch of our brand new
natural turf sports pitch consultants, Natural Turf Solutions (NTS) offer a
