Blakedown Sport & Play won the contract, through competitive tender, to construct an all-weather 3G pitch and two tarmac multi-use games areas for Educo UK, in partnership with Costain PLC, at the Grange Technology College in Bradford.
The new-build AWP uses a high-spec Edel Superblade 40mm 3G sports turf laid onto an engineered base of porous tarmac, with a 15mm shockpad in between. Sports lines for football, hockey, and 5-a-side mini-soccer were seamed into the turf. To complete the project, Blakedown constructed a twinbar fencing system to surround the pitch and supplied a set of self-weighted free-standing goals.
The two tarmac MUGA’s are lined for basketball and netball, and were completed with fencing and floodlighting. The sports facilities were included as part of an extensive redevelopment program under the Building Schools for the Future (BSF) initiative.
