Planning a new sports pitch

As an experienced consultant, in-depth agronomic advice and planning are provided in the design, establishment and maintenance of sports pitches…

In order to interest the best contractors and secure the best deal for a sports pitch contract in 2016, contract documents should be presented at least by the early new year.  In the meantime there is lots of work to be done.  Assuming planning permission has been obtained there is need for a feasibility study if funding is sought.  The magnitude of the project – especially the degree of earthworks –  must be realistically estimated and drainage provisions need to be fully thought out and planned.  Approval from The Environment Agency may be required.  Besides planning the pitch the development of surrounding areas also needs careful thought.

Once there is agreement on the project outline, detailed working drawings need to be prepared – together with specifications and pertinent contractor information.  Standard general conditions of contract generally apply.  Everything takes longer than expected and preparations can never be commenced too early.
