Sand Filled Pitch Construction

Contact Us

The initial stage for sand filled pitch construction is the ground works and foundations. This involves measuring out the size of the sand filled pitch and then creating the foundations based on the size. The sports mainly used for sand filled pitches are hockey and five a side football so the size of a sand filled pitch construction job is usually based on the dimensions for these sports. We have to build the sports pitch on top of a sub base to allow for the pitch to be completely smooth, and a flat playing field; this increases the playing characteristics dramatically.

Be sure to contact us today if you would like to ask about the costs and designs of these sports facilities. One of our experts will get back to you as quickly as possible to discuss the work in more detail and give you a quote.

The sand filled pitch construction creates a completely porous sports facility that is suitable for all-weather use, which is perfect for schools and colleges that have to use the facility all year round, even through the winter months. There are lots of different options to allow more customisation for football or hockey pitches; this includes a variety of fencing and floodlighting options which can be designed to meet your requirements. The pitch is filled with sand to allow for more grip for the athletes and players using the pitch, it also makes sure that the artificial grass fibres across the pitch remain the same height and structure, improving the playing characteristics.


Sand Filled Surfacing Installation Costs

The sand filled surfacing installation costs will vary from job to job; the most influential part on the overall price of the facility is the size in which the client wants the sand filled pitch construction to be carried out for. Obviously the bigger the sports pitch, the more expensive the final asking price will be. The location of the job will also play a part in the overall costs of the project, as the job will be done over a period of a weeks, we will have to pay for accommodation for our construction team, which will increase the price.

We can also customise the price for you through a variety of different extras we have on offer, if you would like any extras at all that is. We offer a variety of different fencing and floodlighting options to give you the perfect all round facility for your school, this can help keep sand filled surfacing installation costs down. We also suggest having a regular maintenance scheme in place to ensure that you can make the most out of your sports pitch in the long term, through an increased product life and excellent performance characteristics.

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.

AFC Bournemouth

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. 

Banister Primary School

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!
