Bespoke Synthetic Pitch for Withington Girls’ School

SSL are delighted to formally handover the reconstructed external sports facilities at Withington Girls’ School.

The project involved the stunning reconstruction of the synthetic pitch which has also been performance tested as part of the FIH Quality Programme for Hockey Facilities. As part of the design, SSL incorporated customised team shelters and school logo’s within the synthetic pitch surrounds. This has created a bespoke facility that has immediately impressed both school staff and pupils alike.

Earlier this year the school, based in Manchester, selected SSL as project consultant to provide independent advice on options to refurbish their 20 year old synthetic turf pitch and upgrade their tarmac tennis courts. SSL’s consultants carried out feasibility work and provided outline cost options, all supported by extensive on site surveying of the old synthetic pitch.

Having provided an evaluation to the school on the different options available, SSL then developed a detailed schedule of works before administering a formal tender process on the school’s behalf.

After a final survey of the works, one of several carried out by SSL throughout the project, SSL confirmed that practical completion had been achieved and the facilities could be handed over to the school to put into use. 

The project marks another successful sports facility project delivered by SSL within the UK independent school sector.
