New all-weather sports surfaces

Client: FWP (Architects)

Contract Value: £315,000

Build Time: 12 weeks

Location: Aldwych Drive, Preston, PR2 1SL

Blakedown were contracted by FWP Architects to build the full-size 3G pitch at Ashton Community Science College in Preston. The pitch was surfaced with Edel’s Superblade Duo 60mm designed for football, with three cross-play 7-a-side pitches also in-laid in yellow.

The 3G pitch, solely funded by the board of directors, will provide a valuable source of income as the Club continues to invest in the infrastructure, resources, players and staff required in order to assist the First Team play at the highest level possible.

A six-column scheme of 12m high floodlights, heavy-duty twin-bar fencing, and associated landscaping works including an earth bund on two sides and re-seeding of grass completed the project.
