Sand-filled astroturf pitch

Blakedown Sport & Play have undertaken design and build works at Monkton Combe School for a full-size sand-filled artificial sports pitch.

The existing site was on a slope of 2 metres which Blakedown corrected with a block work 600mm high retaining wall built on concrete foundations to ensure the pitch was a level playing surface.

  • Client: Monkton Combe School
  • Contract Type: ICE 6th Edition CD
  • Contract Value: £306,000
  • Build Time: 14 weeks

A new drainage system, perimeter kerbing, a double layer of porous macadam, and 15mm insitu shockpad were also all newly installed, complete with Edel LSR 24mm sand-filled sports turf (Astroturf) with lines in-laid for hockey and football.

As well as the playing surface, Blakedown also installed a new 2.5 metre high weldmesh fencing system, 1.2 metre high post-and-railing fence line to the retaining wall, and tarmac perimeter path and landscaping works to add the finishing touches.

Location: Church Lane, Monkton Combe, Bath, BA2 7HG
