Design is the cornerstone and starting point of any new facility. Our in house team can take a project from an idea through the planning process, right through to construction drawings, project inspections and after service guidance.

With our in house design team experience and a company history dating back to 1964 coupled with the latest software tools allows SWSG to produce a design for any purpose. We undertake site surveys, drainage and groundwork investigations and then produce the right design for the clients ideas.

We strongly believe that early engagement in a project is the key to a successful one.

The playing surface at Fairwood training academy was constructed using a SIS stitched hybrid system utilising polyethylene monofilament dual tone colour filament and natural grass combination. The surface works were constructed on a new rootzone, sand and sacrificial and grit stone base.

Together with an 8-year warranty, SIS Grass and South Wales Sports Grounds supplied a world class state of the art surface, irrigation and drainage system as well as some ancillary fencing, pathway and edge constructions.  South Wales Sports Grounds were responsible for all aspects of the construction build‐up with SIS Pitches completing the final stitching of the hybrid surface.

“In the summer of 2017 South Wales Sports Grounds together with SIS grass constructed 3 new, state of the art hybrid pitch at our first team training facilities at Fairwood. The work was completed to a very high standard and within the tight time frame.  Site safety was ably considered and SWSG managed aspects of the build and aftercare well. The team worked with politeness and professionalism throughout and contributed to a World class end product.

We’ve used SWSG for all our renovations and new build projects over the last four years and I would thoroughly recommend their services for any future endeavours”.

South Wales Sports Grounds (SWSG) were commissioned for the Design and Build of a new state of the art 3G facility for Llanishen Rugby Club in the Summer of 2018. The project was constructed on the existing school site at Llanishen High and as such, provided a top of the range facility to be utilised by both the club and school in tandem.

SWSG were involved from the original inception to the final products delivery working through designs, planning, client liaisons and much, much more.

Using the latest technologies in products and machinery, SWSG were able to construct the pitch with banked surrounds on three sides to minimise noise and light spill to the neighbouring community as well as utilising the ground model for a multipart attenuation system.

Along with the attenuated drainage, the facility was built with an 8m fence / net configuration, attenuation raft, dynamic stone base and shockpad.

Outside of the main facility, SWSG were involved in the design and build of the clubhouse, changing room facilities and carpark which involved the demolition of the older steel structure, full drainage and attenuation of the area and base works for the newest build.

The final product is certified to World Rugby and FIFA Quality

“Having met with a large number of pitch developers, Llanishen RFC decided that South Wales Sports Grounds provided the best overall package, not only in terms of value for money, which is vital, but also in terms of build time, build quality and project management. The development was completed on schedule, and the company provided a first class well managed service and workforce.

The site has also become a great attraction for touring rugby and football teams, as the quality of the facility and surface is high, as are the other on-site facilities. The other benefit to Llanishen RFC is that the renowned South Wales rain no longer causes matches to be cancelled.”
