Another Partnership with Consultant Traction Sports

Another Partnership with Consultant Traction Sports

What a privilege to have been awarded another project from Traction Sports. Smith Construction can make St Michael’s Prep School’s vision of a brand-new hockey pitch a reality, after years of ground investigations and design work.

St Michael’s Prep School is a fantastic co-educated preparatory school, situated within the rolling chalk hills of the North Downs, in Kent. Amongst the 90-acre site, an array of sports are catered for on their grass playing fields including tennis courts, cricket nets and pitches, football pitches and adventure play.

Smith Construction worked closely with both the consultant and client to create a design that took into consideration the challenging ground conditions. To assist with the design, trial holes were excavated and extensive cut and fill calculations were conducted. Once all the information had been evaluated, Smith Construction successfully created a design which accommodated for the chalky and sloping ground conditions.

To overcome the natural characteristics of chalk, the ground will be stabilised using a cement mixture, with an extra soakaway drain will be installed. Once all the groundworks and engineered base works are complete, TigerTurf’s Evo Pro will be installed. Evo Pro is a highly accredited sand dressed carpet, which meets the requirements of FIH National Standards, and will be green and terracotta in colour.

Smith Construction’s knowledge and proven track record of constructing hockey pitches has placed us in a unique and elite category of approved FIH Field Builders. The Certified Field Builder accreditation demonstrates Smith Construction have the ability to construct hockey pitches to the high standards required. It verifies Smith Construction have appropriate in-house civil engineering expertise, and quality management systems in place to ensure the consistency of our work.

Are you looking to construct or resurface a hockey pitch? Call us today on 01529 461500 and a member of our team will be happy to assist.
