Project Overview:

Polytan undertook a transformative project at the Terry Launders Field in Taree, NSW, home to the Manning Valley Hockey Club. The resurfacing project aimed to enhance playability, safety, and sustainability through the implementation of cutting-edge materials and methodologies.

A core aspect of the project involved installing our Poligras H2OZ COOLplus, a state-of-the-art Australian Made synthetic grass system available in striking Field Green and London Blue colours. To support player safety and field performance, the shock pad layer of the turf system is made from recycled tyres and was sourced locally. The Poligras H2OZ COOLplus surface received recognition from the International Hockey Federation (FIH) affirming its compliance with premier grade standards. This achievement underscores the fields suitability for top tier hockey play and cements its status as a venue of choice for the hockey community and general public for years to come.

The project’s wide scope extended beyond surface installation. Polytan was also responsible for securing the site, setting up necessary facilities, and implementing environmental practices. Existing components such as sand infill, grass and shock pad layer were extracted, removed, and responsibly disposed off site meticulously. The underlying chipseal base was expertly levelled and profiled incorporating the new road base material as required. This foundation was primed followed by the installation of a new two-layer asphalt surface.

 

The Results:

With the revitalisation of the Terry Launders Field now completed, the Manning Valley Hockey community and general public can enjoy a premier grade hockey experience on a surface designed for longevity and excellence.
