As we commence the new decade, the SSL team would like to say a big thank you to all of our clients.
Over the last year the SSL team has developed and delivered a wide variety of high quality sports facilities to further emphasise our position as one of the most respected consultancy practices in the industry.
Over recent months the team have also been working hard on some very exciting new company developments which we look forward to announcing shortly.
Happy New Year to all our past and present clients and here’s to delivering more first-rate facilities in 2020!
SSL are pleased to hand over an impressive new hockey pitch and tennis courts to one of the leading independent schools in the UK!
SSL were appointed by the School to carry out an initial Feasibility Study and outline design. SSL’s experienced team were able to provide expert advice prior to submitting a detailed planning application to Manchester City Council. Following approval, SSL provided a contract specification document accompanied by design drawings as produced by SSL’s in-house CAD design team. This enabled the project to be formally tendered to several specialist contractors.
A careful tender analysis process, based on both price and quality criteria, was carried out by SSL and a report provided to the School.
Following contract award, SSL managed the construction stage on behalf of the school, chairing progress meetings with the contractor Greenfields UK as well as carrying out key stage quality control inspections to provide independent verification that the works were being built to the required high quality standards.
And the end result looks impressive! Facilities include a new floodlit waterbased synthetic hockey pitch, synthetic turf tennis courts and tarmac MUGA/overspill car park. SSL are sure the new development will only serve to enhance the top-class reputation of one of the UK’s leading educational establishments!
