Porirua Synthetic Sports Field Community Trust has been working with the local community on the development of new facilities, for the community at Ascot Park. The redevelopment began in March 2013 with the full construction of a two new artificial turf field, complete with detailed drainage, perimeter footpaths and entranceways and lighting towers. Both fields meet FIFA Two Star and IRB compliant multi-lined rugby league, soccer and rugby field standards including the warm up areas.
The upgrade was awarded to STI NZ, including nearly 11,000m2 of APT’s LigaTurf RS+ 260 COOLplus synthetic surface for the multi-sport field including rugby and football!
Despite significant challenges encountered through weather, STI managed to accelerate the programme to the point where E-layer shock pad was being installed just eight weeks after commencement!
Made possible due to the following:
• Specialist subcontractors engaged for all aspects of the scope of works.
• Coordination by STI’s full-time site manager to ensure the interface between all trades resulted in no lead times.
• Communication and cooperation by all subcontractors and an ability to work with each other to accelerate the programme.
• The use of an asphalt paver, controlled by STI’s laser control technology for the final 30mm layer allowing the commencement of the E-layer shocked at the same time.
Congratulations to the team, the construction and installation was completed in just 14 weeks of actual construction time, four weeks earlier than originally anticipated!
