3G Pitch Construction and Hockey Pitch Construction
K Sports, a sport and entertainment centre based in Kent, appointed us to carry out the construction of a full-sized 3G pitch and an FIH accredited hockey pitch. The project spanned over two phases – one for each pitch. Both were built on what was originally natural playing fields used by the sports club for training.
As with any sports pitch construction, having a strong foundation is crucial. We completed all the enabling groundworks, deep drainage installation and sub-base formation before utilising the CLS Laser Grader to achieve a completely level base with tolerances within 3mm.
For the 3G pitch, a pre-fabricated shockpad was installed with great success, ahead of the synthetic turf installation. On completion, the pitch was independently tested and received FIFA 2* accreditation.
The hockey pitch was also independently tested and received an FIH accreditation.
Along with the pitch works, we installed perimeter fencing, floodlighting, macadam spectator areas and a new car park.
'We were extremely impressed with the professionalism and competence of CLS. Everything we expected was achieved and management and construction staff were a pleasure to deal with, giving advice where necessary and helping when there was no obligation to do so. We were so pleased with the finished 3G pitch/stadium that we chose CLS to construct our Hockey Pitch. We have no hesitation in recommending CLS to anyone and would be happy for anyone to visit our sports ground to see the result for themselves.'
