Comprehensive Sportex specialist sports construction and civil engineering project with innovative undersurface.

Cargilfield School is attended by more than 300 girls and boys, aged 3-13 years and is the oldest independent boarding and day prep school in Scotland. The school’s rich environment conveys a real sense of achievement and momentum along with the broad curriculum and commitment to academic, creative, cultural and sporting excellence.

SPORTEX was selected to provide specialist sports construction and civil engineering skills in building a new 90m x 60m, fully equipped artificial turf pitch for hockey and tennis, supported by a newly refurbished, three court tennis facility. The new build specification was an engineered macadam construction, incorporating a lateral drainage system; overlaid by an in-situ bound rubber shock pad. High quality 18mm TigerTurf ‘EVO PRO’ sand-dressed artificial turf was installed for both the new hockey facility and the refurbished tennis courts. Both facilities had 868 rigid panel weld mesh perimeter fencing installed, and were furnished with a full complement of hockey and tennis sports equipment, along with LED floodlighting.

Bespoke Requirements

The refurbished tennis court facility was installed with TenCate Ecocept® Performance Sports Base, an advanced innovative porous pavement, specially developed to use below synthetic sports turf surfaces. The base acts as a combined structural layer and shock pad, ensuring a stable surface, whilst reducing the loads experienced by players. It also reduces the impact on the environment, as it is almost entirely made from recycled materials, including recycled synthetic pitches.

The project was delivered on budget and we are delighted with both the quality of the build and the after sales service and maintenance support. I would not hesitate to recommend SPORTEX for similar projects.”
