Project – Construction of football pitch development
Client- Tameside MBC
Bancroft Amenities Ltd successfully tendered to construct three new football pitches on an old slag tip site, which although marked out as football pitches were totally unusable in winter months. Scheme had to produce good quality free draining pitches against the backdrop of fairly poor existing top soil limited depth and a limited maintenance budget.
Strip off top soil
Grade sub- formation
Install lateral drains @ 5m centres
Gravel carpet 4000m³
Re-spread top soil
Sand amelioration 800 tonnes
The scheme was successfully completed ahead of schedule and the pitches now provide quality free draining surfaces which have remained in use throughout this particularly wet winter.
These pitches are shown on Tameside MBC’s Website as their top A grade pitches.
