During 2010, Fineturf completed the construction of a 60,000m2 playing field at the City of Lincoln School, for Balfour Beatty. Fineturf have since returned to the site to install a long and triple jump as part of the facilities.
The long and triple jump track measured 53m long x 1.22m wide and the two jump pits, one at each end, were 9m long x 3m wide.
The track and jump pit formation was excavated using a Volvo 360 and laser guided equipment. A concrete kerb edging was installed on the track whereas for safety reasons the jump pits used a rubber topped edging.
The track was built in 3 layers, starting with a stone base, followed by a porous macadam course, which was rolled, and the surface finished with a rubber wet pour material.
Foundation troughs, take off boards and blank boards were supplied and installed to allow take off into either jump pit.
