Stadium Rugby Pitch Unveiled in Colwyn Bay

A 3G synthetic turf rugby pitch at Stadium CSM is the latest sports facility development at Parc Eirias in Colwyn Bay.

SSL were delighted to be appointed as project consultant working on behalf of Conwy County Borough Council to deliver the new pitch which is located within the infield of an athletics track.

Following site survey works including locating and mapping underground services, investigating ground conditions and assessing surface levels, a design proposal was presented to the council together with an overview of the proposed construction methodology and outline construction costings. A contract specification was produced and the project tendered to specialist contractors. During the works onsite, SSL carefully monitored the build process, completing key stage checks and quality control sign offs, whilst also keeping tabs on the construction costs.

The end result is a stunning 3G synthetic pitch with a surface system that achieves both World Rugby and FIFA Quality performance standards.

The stadium hosts high profile sporting fixtures including Under 20’s Wales Internationals, RGC matches and North Wales Crusaders. In addition the facility is the venue for major music events. SSL worked together with the turf manufacturer and contractor to help deliver a solution to protect the 3G turf surface when recently covered over for major music concert events.

Mally Tidswell, Principal Leisure Manager at Conwy County Borough Council commented;

“SSL had every stage of the project covered.  It was extremely well managed and nothing was too much trouble.  It really took the stress out of planning and delivery.  Excellent support, regular contact and a passion for delivering top class facilities.

The new facility is a real bonus.  It’s made such a positive difference to usage levels.  This allows us to increase income and support the community and other key users all year round. 

The attention to detail in this project was key, delivered on time and within budget which is essential.  SSL are a company you can trust.”

SSL are proud to have designed and delivered several sports facilities on the Parc Eirias site, including a synthetic turf 3G football pitch, 3G rugby pitch and sand dressed hockey pitch.
