In conjunction with Bouygues UK, South Wales Sports Grounds (SWSG) constructed a new football and hockey 3G surface as well as a macadam bank of tennis, basketball and netball courts at the extiting school site at Llantwit Major Comprehensive School. The 3G surface was topped with sand and rubber crumb with the MUGA finished with a sports colour coating paint for improved grip and surface longevity.

SWSG and its subcontractors were involved in all aspects of the construction including flootlights & electrical, drainage, subbase, stone and tarmacadam providing designs and information during pre-construction and carrying on with maintenance after the surfaces’ completion.

The project in Eastern High, Cardiff was a multi construct project with the installation of a full-size FIFA and World Rugby quality 3G surface, 2 large-scale tarmac multi-use-games-areas and a natural grass surface. The project was completed with the main contractor, Willmott Dixon.

The natural surface was built alongside the other facilities and provided a playing surface for the needs of the school’s rugby, football, hockey teams and many more.

The grass pitch was built as a Sport England Type 4 grass surface and therefore has both primary and secondary drainage, pitch dressing sand and grass seed & fertilizer.
