Home of Hertfordshire FA headquarters, the new 3G pitch construction, in Letchworth, is nearing completion.
Due to the ground sloping from adjacent corners, Smith Construction was tasked with levelling and stabilising the pitch, whilst ensuring the existing surrounds complied with DDA regulations. The surrounds have been re-tarmacked, to create an even surface between the pitch and spectator pathways. On the other side, extra steps have been installed where the pitch levels have been altered during the cut and fill process.
In addition to the cut and fill works, the foundation was stabilised and a sustainable drainage system installed. The original floodlights have been removed and replaced with six new modern raise and lower floodlight columns.
The next month’s work includes the installation of Limonta Sport’s Duo Shape P+ 50mm carpet. The pitch will be enclosed with new fencing and permanent lines will be inlaid within the pitch.
