Smith Construction (Heckington) Ltd, and turf manufacturers, Limonta Sport, a FIFA preferred producer, have combined their skills and expertise to form a joint venture company, Limonta Smith JV for The FA and RFU Framework projects.
The Nuneaton Academy project was awarded to Limonta Smith JV, as part of The FA framework. The project included the design and construction of a full size 3G football pitch, with retaining walls and associated drainage. Limonta Diamond 60 carpet with rubber crumb infill was installed. The project also included fencing and floodlighting to ensure the facility was safe and secure, and to ensure maximum use throughout the year.
Limonta Smith JV is proud and delighted to announce the pitch has achieved FIFA 2 star certification. This means the 3G football pitch has been designed and constructed to mirror the playing characteristics of a natural grass professional football pitch. This FIFA quality concept is a guarantee of the pitches consistency and quality and is respected internationally.
The surface has markings for 11 a-side 9 v 9, small sided games and provides a facility for year round use for the Academy and the local community.
