Our expertise in project managing sports surface installations ensures your facility will meet your requirements now and beyond.
Our services for sport are flexible and can help your project in part, or as a fully encompassing role, from the design stage to the completed pitch installation and construction. A structured development path ensures specific objectives are identified, tailored solutions are obtained and all project expectations are satisfied.
Groundwork and construction requirements
The first consideration is the groundworks – our proposal will take into account requirements for any site remodelling, earthworks, access requirements, landscaping, maintenance and drainage.
SSL are able to design and specify not just the playing surface, but also the ancillary items that make the facility operate as required. We liaise with the leading sports equipment suppliers to make sure that goal fittings, nets, furniture and perimeter fencing are all specified to perform and integrate effortlessly, with consideration to durability, longevity and cost effectiveness.
Lighting requirements is an essential part of the design specification which will increase the usability of the facility throughout the year. We are able to computer model floodlight emissions to determine light levels on the playing surface, and light spillage around the facility. This data can also be used within the planning application and is particularly important for residential areas around the site.
With running costs, maintenance and energy efficiency high on the agenda, SSL are pleased to see real advances in LED lighting technology in sports floodlighting and are able to advise and specify the best lighting solution for your requirements.
Construction partner selection
Once agreed and signed off by our client, the final design solution and specification will provide the basis for tender documentation to select potential contractors. Depending on our Client’s requirements, SSL is able to produce the full documentation required for the tender process. Once the tender period closes, we can help to assess the responses on factors such as cost and quality, in order to select a preferred contractor.
Our team employs the latest industry technology and modelling in AutoCAD.
We produce full detailed designs, specifications, bills of quantities and construction drawings, which can form part of the tender and contract documentation for the project.
