Continuing its strong working relationship with Stoke-on-Trent City Council, Turfdry has completed the construction phase of the new sports pitches adjacent to Hanley Town F.C., on Abbey Lane, Abbey Hulton.
Consisting of a trio of football pitches – in senior, youth, and mini-soccer sizes – the entire complex benefits from the unique Turfdry Drainage System using Hydraway Sportsdrain to maximise the likelihood of year-round play. In addition to the pitch construction, Turfdry also reinstated an old pond on the site, which acts as an attenuation pond for the youth pitch’s drainage as well as providing aesthetic and ecological value.
Whilst it now evident that the facility will be something to be proud of, the project threw up its fair share of obstacles for Turfdry to overcome:
Although these issues made the work at Abbey Lane more complicated the Turfdry team has learned that projects often involve unknown additional challenges. With 20 years of operation comes 20 years of experience, and the Turfdry team is well equipped to tackle even the most complicated projects to deliver difficult jobs every time.
Turfdry will undertake the initial maintenance of the site throughout the 'growing-in' phase for the pitches, and will hand over the site to Stoke-on-Trent Council in readiness for the start of the 2015-16 football season.
