Blakedown were employed by Kennet District Council to construct a new full-size sand-filled (astroturf) pitch at Devizes School and Leisure Centre in Wiltshire. The selected playing surface was Edel's Elite 24mm PP sports turf, suitable for hockey, football, and tennis.
The pitch was built on an Engineered base with perimeter and lateral drainage and a 10mm in-situ shockpad with a 5m high perimeter fencing system and 350lux floodlights.
As part of the project, Blakedown also erected a 3m high weldmesh fencing system around a bank of existing tennis courts, reconstructed a 3000m2 tarmac car-park, installed hard wood slatted fencing to the site entrance, installed street lighting to the carpark and access roads, and incorporated other hard and soft landscaping around the facility.
