The newly refurbished Horfield Leisure Centre in Bristol is managed by Everyone Active the UK’s longest established leisure operator with some 140 leisure and cultural centres countrywide.
As part of the re-development S&C Slatter was commissioned to design and construct an impressive new build 5 a side football facility comprising five 3G football turf pitches. The company’s Pre-Construction Team led by Commercial Director Jason Douglass and Contracts Manager David Smith also took responsibility to manage the project through the formal planning process.
The 4416m2 floodlit footprint is designed to provide one 46m x 30m pitch and four 32m x 23m pitches and features the FieldTurf XTR 60mm 3G football turf playing surface installed over a macadam engineered sub-base system. There is a 69m x 3m central walkway which allows easy access to all the areas and which connects to a new macadam path leading to the main leisure centre building.
Black galvanised and polyester powder coated super rebound quality weld mesh fencing is used as the primary fencing component, supplemented with roof and side ball stop netting.
