Ipswich Academy Sports Pitch Extension

August 2012

In August we completed a project at Ipswich Academy for Balfour Beatty. The works extended the existing sports pitches by the removal of landscapes mounds.

Trees and shrubs were felled, chipped and removed from site. The landscape mounds were excavated to 200mm below ground level using a Volvo Excavator. Imported topsoil was spread and laser graded before a 6mm layer of sports sand was spread using our custom built sand spreader. The sand was ameliorated into the topsoil layer before final ground preparation. A pre seed fertiliser was applied and the surface sown with Limagrain MM60.
