A collaborative working partnership was created between S&C Slatter and Hampton School in order to deliver an exceptional sports and recreation asset for the client.
An extensive earthworks operation, undertaken by our in-house civil engineering team, was necessary to create a plateau on which the new facility could be sited. The artificial turf pitch specification features a number of innovative designs and functions intended to enhance the user experience and the safe operation of the sports field.
For example, 3G Turf football and rugby pitch benefits from a fully automatic irrigation system with in-ground sprinkler heads to assist the grounds staff in managing playing characteristics whatever the weather. This links into the site’s existing irrigation system, maximising the control and water-use efficiency across the site.
The project delivered by S&C Slatter included substantial and site-wide sports facility upgrading and enhancements, with the construction of two new cricket squares and new natural turf sports pitches. Furthermore, extensive refurbishment and resurfacing of the ageing polymeric athletics facilities was completed to the high standards expected of this prestigious site.
