The Friary School
Blakedown have been employed by the Friary School in Lichfield to develop a top quality all-weather pitch for football and tennis. Partially built on the existing footprint of old tarmac tennis courts which were pulled up, the area of the pitch was extended and a new foundations laid. The playing surface chosen for the new pitch was TigerTurf Evolution sand-dressed turf, with the tennis and football lines seamed in. Blakedown also installed a new floodlighting system and heavy-duty perimeter fencing.
Client: The Friary School
Contract Type: JCT Minor Works
Built Time: 14 weeks
Barry Board, the school’s Director of Sport, said, "Our new pitch is a wonderful addition to our facilities. Blakedown did a really good job from start to finish and the surface is usable for most other sports as well as football and tennis. We wanted a multi sports surface, and we got a really good one."
"The workforce was discreet, highly professional and pleasant. I would have no reservation about using Blakedown again.".
