Edel Touchdown 3G pitch
Blakedown Sport & Play were awarded the contract with Main Contractor Kier to construct the extensive sports provision for the new £16million development of the Phoenix Academy & Sports Centre in Telford.
A new, state-of-the-art, full-size, artificial turf pitch for rugby and football was built using Edel's 'Touchdown' 3G sports turf laid onto a Dynamic stone base with 25mm shockpad. Heavy duty twin-bar fencing was installed to surround the pitch, and the eight column floodlighting system allows the pitch to be leased out during evenings all year round.
Client: Kier Construction
Contract: Central Form of SC
Additional works carried out by Blakedown at the Academy included a six court multi-use games area, two full-size natural grass pitches, natural grass athletics areas, and two natural grass training pitches.
A large Sport England grant enabled the development of the Academy, which is part of a larger regeneration project by Telford & Wrekin Council.
