Working with ICA Architects, Blakedown Sport & Play were contracted to construct new sports facilities at the Haven Holiday Park in Burnham-on-Sea, Somerset by leisure operator Bourne Leisure. The development included three artificial turf multi-use games areas for mini-football, mini-tennis, and basketball, new tennis courts, and an adventure play area.
Preparing the site for construction required an extensive groundworks operation including stabilisation, installation of an extensive drainage system, and concrete reinforcements to existing access ways.
The playing surface selected for the three games areas was an LSR 24mm sand-filled sports turf (astroturf). The tennis courts were surfaced using red and green acrylic top-coat applied to porous tarmac and the adventure play area was surfaced using a combination of tricolour wet-pour and artificial leisure grass.
To complete the project, Blakedown installed a 200lux floodlighting system to the courts, and high ballstop fencing and tubular fencing to the games areas.
