We are almost there! Last week the Contractors managed to complete gluing and cutting the pitch lines into the carpet. They have also been able to make a start with the sand install and have begun to reinstate the site compound – once all of the on-site plant has been removed the space will be used to create over 60 parking spaces for Sports Centre and pitch users.
After the sand installation has been completed the rubber can be installed and then just the necessary quality checks to be undertaken so we really are close to completion! A final key stage inspection will be confirmed shortly.
Unfortunately the rain showers we are currently experiencing mean there has been a slight delay with the rubber application. As a result, the works will be delayed by just a further 3 days so handover is likely to take place next Friday, 21st July rather than on the 18th as originally hoped.
This is most definitely a facility that has been worth waiting for and we are looking forward to welcoming Students, Staff and Community Clubs to this fabulous new playing surface.
