Complete Sports Pitch
DESIGN / CONSTRUCTION / MAINTENANCE
CLS Sports have an excellent reputation in the natural turf sports pitch industry. We work with all clients, from small amateur clubs, through to large professional sporting clubs and venues. We pride ourselves on our professionalism & attention to detail, along with our ability to deliver projects on time and in budget, for both new pitches and the renovation of existing pitches. These principles are maintained from initial contact through to project completion and into the aftercare of the facility.
CLS Sports is the specialist sports surface and drainage division of Cleveland Land Services (Guisborough) Ltd (CLS). CLS started trading in 1968 as a landscape contractor and has since extended its operations to include reclamation, civil engineering, drainage works and maintenance.
CLS have been constructing sports facilities for over 15 years and are S.A.P.C.A (Sport and Play Contractors Association) Principal Contractors. CLS Sports have vast experience in all types of natural and synthetic sports surface construction and maintenance.
The professional work carried out by our teams was recognised by Sport England in 2011 when CLS were successful in both the pre-qualification and then the final appraisal stage following which CLS were included as one of 6 national Framework Partners for the 'Design and Construction of Artificial Sports Surfaces'. The requirements of the partnership include visiting and surveying sites nationally, for condition and suitability, preparing feasibility reports including outline design proposals, consulting with local Planning and Building Control departments, preparation and submission of necessary Planning and Building Control applications and developing detailed design solutions as well as the construction process itself. The framework will provide clients with an informed 'one stop shop' for their project.
It was evident that the teams installing sports facilities needed their own identity so in 2014 the CLS Sports division brand was created. CLS Sports are proud to have an excellent reputation of providing a high quality service for a diverse range of private and public sector clients. We are committed to providing a professional service to ensure complete client satisfaction. CLS Sports operate a continuing major capital reinvestment programme and operates a diverse range of construction and drainage plant, and specialist sports surface equipment.
We have an excellent, committed and motivated work force, with a consistently expanding skills bank. This all allows the majority of projects to be completed utilising in-house resources, minimising the need to enter into consortia or sub-contract agreements. The quality of our work is underpinned by our ISO 9001:2008 'Quality Assurance' accreditation verified by SGS. We are CSCS Platinum Award holders and are 'Investors in People'.
CLS sports regard site safety and adequate training as fundamental to achieving a zero accident goal. We view health and safety as a priority in all that we do. In addition to our regular in-house checks we undertake periodic external, and annual appraisals of both site procedures and working practices and our documented systems. These are carried out under the CHAS and Achilles accreditation schemes.
CLS Sports are at the forefront of all the new innovations in artificial sports pitch construction, working closely with both national and international carpet manufacturers and sports pitch consultants.
