Carshalton Sports College
3G pitch and refurbished playing fields
Blakedown were awarded the contract to construct a new full-size 3G artificial turf football pitch for Carshalton Boys Sports College in Surrey. The playing surface chosen for the pitch was Edel’s Future 50mm sports turf laid onto a dynamic stone base. Two cross-play mini-soccer pitches were seamed into the turf as well as the main 11-a-side football layout. Heavy duty twinbar fencing with 1.2m super-rebound enclosed the pitch, and Blakedown also installed a full floodlighting system.
Client: Carshalton Boys Sports College
Contract Type: JCT
Built Time: 14 weeks
Due to the school’s location in a built-up area, Blakedown erected acoustic barrier fencing to reduce construction noise during the build. Alongside the artificial turf pitch, the grass playing fields were dug out and equipped with a new drainage system, re-levelled, and then seeded to offer superior quality grass football pitches.
The works were partially funded by the Youth Sports Trust, an independent charity that delivers high quality sporting facilities for young people across the UK.
