Type of installation: Natural turf pitch construction and renovation of training ground
Location: Southampton Football Club, Southampton
Kestrel were contracted to carry out construction work at Southampton FC’s Marchwood Training Ground, performing major improvements to 6 academy football pitches and the main first team training pitch.
The football pitches were stripped off with a bulldozer, new sand was added to the existing topsoil before the pitches were re-levelled.
Sand slitting was then installed prior to the playing surface being seeded.
Several training grids were constructed and a sub-base prepared for the installation of a new 3rd generation artificial grass surface.
Scope of works:
“Kestrel came in and superseded our expectations, the quality of the pitches are first class, but as well as that they are easy to communicate with and work at a good pace”.
