Preparing the Sub Base
Having an artificial football pitch construction take place at your institution sounds like a daunting prospect, but once you know a little more about the process you’ll be ensured there is nothing to worry about. The very first step is to do the ground works which includes laying the foundation down for the sport pitch to be built on. There are different types of sub bases that are generally used, the most common being an engineered sub base and dynamic sub base.
Engineered sub bases for artificial sports pitch construction are made out of macadam which can be laid to give a very flat and level playing surface whilst also greatly increasing the life expectancy of your sports pitch due its extremely hard wearing nature. A dynamic sub base is made up from lots of angular stone pieces, this means that the stones meet head to head causing very little movement and maintaining a good level playing surface. This particular specification has really good shock absorption resulting in less risks of player injuries.
Installing Football Turf
The next part of the artificial football pitch construction also helps reduce the risk of players injuring themselves, the shock pad that is installed in between the sub base and the turf carpet. Not only does this have shock absorbing properties, it helps reduce the risk of the carpet slipping and it also extends the products life span.
Now that the foundations have been laid, the next process is the installation of your desired synthetic turf carpet on top of the existing ground works. The carpet is laid out and then stuck together to create the sport surface. The turf is then filled with either sand or rubber to help maintain its pile height, which is to make sure that the grass fibres keep their shape. It’s important to make sure that synthetic football pitch construction is done properly and by an experienced contractor as potential mistakes could prove to be very costly.
Costs of Building Synthetic Soccer Courts
The costs of building synthetic soccer courts depend obviously on the sizes and dimensions of the playing field however there are lots of other factors that need to be taken into account. The different surfaces used for each pitch will vary in price, however price should not be a factor when choosing a sport surface as each carpet is specifically suitable for one sport or another.
The costs of building a synthetic soccer court can be managed through a whole host of variables, meaning that you have a lot of control over your budget for the project and can reduce the costs for the project where needed. There a variety of specifications that can be changed, such as the floodlighting or the particular type of fencing you want around the perimeter of your artificial soccer court. This way you can make sure that your sports pitch is the best that money can buy, or the highest quality synthetic soccer court at the most reasonable price.

Woodhouse grove school
Soft Surfaces won a competitive tender to supply and install a new 6528 m² all weather pitch, marked for football, rugby union and three 5-a-side pitches. There is storage at one end for posts and equipment and the complex is enclosed by a 3m high rebound fence. Lighting columns were erected along the perimeter, and lighting bollards to the access path. A large-scale earthworks scheme was undertaken to create a plateau some 900mm above the 100-year flood level in order to accommodate the pitch. SS worked over weekends and during the normal Christmas shutdown to minimise delays.
When AFC Bournemouth wanted to create a new training surface, we looked into the various options. We discussed the performance and playing characteristics of a variety of surfaces. In the summer, we chose a 3G surface (Rhino Turf VT40) which was supplied and installed by Soft Surfaces Ltd. We chose the Rebounce shock-pad to compliment the VT40 surface, as it met the performance, quality and the most natural appearance – so much more realistic in looks, feel and performance than other synthetic surfaces. We have found Soft Surfaces to be very professional and easy to deal and work with.

We believe we received good value for money by opting to use Soft Surfaces and would like to thank the team for making it painless and stress-free installation experience. We were particularly impressed with the degree of flexibility your exercised as we wanted to change the perimeter area. It’s also important that I state how impressed we were with the cleanliness and tidiness of the work; the site was spotless upon completion. Likewise, the after service has been good and we appreciate that you’ve stayed in touch to make sure we were pleased with the end product. In summary i would be happy to reccomend Soft Surfaces without hesitation or reservation; it was a pleasure doing business with you!
Activity For All
Soft Surfaces came to run a brief presentation on the advantages of their product and why he felt that this was best value and straight away we understood what we was getting as a product, service and installation. I am more than happy with how the project ran with it being delivered ontime, within budget and now have a great football artificial 3G surface. I would strongly recommend dealing with James Dooley at Soft Surfaces who will talk you through the various costs, specifications and finer details because would definitely like to point out that the cheapest is not always the best value. Massive thank you to the team for providing us now with a thriving new facility!
Golborne High School
I would like to express my thanks to all the staff at Soft Surfaces Ltd for helping our school in the upgrade of our MUGA flooring. We were experiencing serious problems with contaminated sand causing flooding and making the surface dangerous under foot. You undertook a site visit and carried out an infill contamination assessment to investigate the problems. This identified that the sand infill needed replacing to bring the facility back to its correct playing characteristics and porous again. The PE staff in school are extremely impressed with the impact of the work undertaken and have commented that it has made a significant improvement to the MUGA surface. I would certainly recommend Soft Surfaces!

There are many factors that cannot be controlled, such as the location of the site that the works is being carried out on, the amount of days the contracting team will be working for and the access the workers have to the area of actual construction. Costs of building synthetic soccer courts can vary dramatically depending on the clients design specifications which means that the entire project can be more accessible for everyone.
