Project details

We joined forces with Notts Sport, for the installation of a new Lano 3G synthetic pitch at Westfield Academy in Yeovil.

  • Client: Westfield Academy
  • Project: 3G Synthetic Pitch
  • Location: Yeovil
  • Sector: Leisure
  • Value: £0.32m
  • Contract Duration: 10 weeks

Requirement

The new pitch, part of several major new sports investments at the school, included upgrading an ageing redgra area to provide students with a state-of-the-art playing surface supporting a wide range of sports, including: football and hockey. The project also involved the construction of a dynamic base, fencing and floodlighting.

We worked with Notts Sport to implement a design which recycled waste materials from the redgra area, to create a new compound for the groundsman.

Result/Outcomes

Local sporting hero and Yeovil Town Football Club player, Chris Weale, was invited to officially open the new pitch. The opening ceremony kicked off with players from Pen Mill U11 squad joined by Westfield students from Year 7 & 8 taking part in a demonstration tournament, with Chris, a former student of the academy, refereeing one of the matches.
