We are a newly established independent sports pitch consultancy with head office in North Wales providing specialist advice and services to sports clubs, schools and local authorities on all aspects of natural turf playing surfaces. Our aim is to improve the quality of sport pitch facilities for clubs and communities by providing greater reliability, performance and safety, increasing player and spectator enjoyment and to encourage further participation in outdoor sports.
All sports pitches need some attention and regular maintenance to get the best out of them. Many seem tired and worn out, have waterlogging issues, poor grass coverage or unforgiving playing surfaces. As sports pitch experts we can assist with improvements to your existing traditional grass pitch to create the ideal playing surface you desire. If you are interested in creating a brand new pitch from scratch we are here to help. We can provide technical advice, designs and specifications, manage the procurement process and monitor the construction works all to suit your requirements and budget.
As a starting point for established pitches we recommend undertaking a technical pitch assessment to investigate the current condition and quality of the playing arena. This exercise examines the fundamental performance aspects of a sports field such as its drainage capability, soil profiling, grass quality, pitch gradients and surface topography. The report forms the basis of any remediation works needed by identifying the issues and proposing solutions. There are a variety of techniques and a range of specialised equipment available to support these works and choosing the most appropriate will lead to better and more cost effective results.
To begin the process sport pitch consultants will carry out feasibility tests on the existing area, this involves discussing the proposed work, assessing the conditions on site and identifying any risks that may be present. Once this has been done a survey of the area will be carried out to ensure the ground and soil conditions are suitable for a large scale construction project. When the area has been fully checked over, the design process can begin to help the client with drawing up a specification and schedule for work. When the client is happy with the design for their new pitch, the consultants will then assist with applying for planning permission from the council.
Finding the right contractor to install a new facility is important as you want to get the perfect product at a good value price for your organisations, whether it's for a school, club or public sporting facilities near me. Through the sports turf consultancy services, a tender document would be prepared with all the specifications, pitch architects' drawings and design details for the installation. This document will then be sent out to a number of contractors who will then each submit a quote for our work. Once all the price quotations have been collected, the contractor with the most competitive quote will be selected to carry out the installation.
Our sport facility installers can alter designs and specifications to meet individual needs and requirements. If you have a specific budget which you need to remain within, do not hesitate to let our staff know; we may reduce the size of our sport facilities and surrounding areas, to meet your specific budget and the space you have available. Our consultants can also offer advice regarding the most appropriate surface types for the sports you wish to play. As professionals in the installation of sport pitches, we can alter each surface spec. We also offer additional services like colour coating and line marking if necessary.
