Type of installation: 3G football pitch replacement
Location: MK Dons, Milton Keynes
Milton Keynes Dons turned to Kestrel Contractors when it came to replacing their 3G surface in the Dome at the club’s Woughton-On-The-Green training ground.
After having had a thorough look at what the market had to offer in relation to the choice of artificial grass, both club Chairman Pete Winkelman and John Cove the SET Chief Executive choose to move forward with Kestrels proposal to lay a dense 60mm monofilament 3G surface.
Kestrel ensured that MK Dons were aware of all of the potential problems that could occur if the base levels were not addressed in the first instance and adopted a strict quality control system to ensure that client was kept in the loop as far as the installation was concerned.
The project was started on the 12th of December, installation of the new surface commenced on 17th December and the facility was ready for play five days later giving a Happy Christmas all round to its many users.
“It wasn’t just a matter of replacing the carpet. We also had to laser level the base as there were significant deviations in the existing levels which were detracting from the playing performance”.
