Smith Construction was delighted to complete a design and build project at Lindum Sports Association, Lincoln, which is located around 20 miles from Smith Construction’s offices.
The project was in planning for a number of months, and the club had been fundraising extensively to ensure the project could proceed. Lindum Sports Association was awarded £235,717 by Sport England, which was added to various other donations from England Hockey, The National Hockey Foundation, Longdales Trust and Lincoln Minister School.
The pitch is the only dedicated hockey pitch in the county and it will be home to two city clubs, Lincoln Hockey Club and Lincoln Roses Hockey Club. Lincoln Minster School also now use the pitch during term time.
Smith Construction was awarded the design and build project in April, however work did not commence on site until August due to waiting for all the forms of funding to be available. The project was due to take 19 weeks to complete, but due to a timely completion, handover was completed ahead of schedule on Friday, 29th November.
The project included fencing and floodlighting, to ensure safe and maximum use all year round. The chosen surface was Tiger Turf’s premium FIH approved hockey surface Evo Pro.
