In this project the CLS Sports maintenance and drainage teams travelled to Brighton. Their specialist knowledge and state of the art equipment were required to work on the new under construction training facilities for Championship football team Brighton and Hove Albion.
The KORO top drainer was deployed to install a secondary drainage system to the newly constructed training pitches at Brighton and Hove Albion. Koro “Topdrain” is a unique multifunctional machine that trenches, removes the spoil, injects sand and re-compacts all in one operation. This KORO machine installed sand bands at 50cm centres to a depth of 225mm. This adaptable machine can inject the sand to depths ranging from 150mm to 225mm. The additional benefits from using the KORO Top Drain include; material and labour savings, faster processing times and less surface contamination than conventional methods.
Once the KORO has installed this secondary drainage system, flow of water to the Primary drainage system will be vastly improved, resulting in field surface performance and turf quality.
