School sports construction specialists

Safety is paramount for every school sports construction project. Our On-Site Health and Safety Manager helps ensure safety throughout the construction site and across the wider school community. To provide the best surface for your pupils our in-house engineers will find ways to utilise all space available to deliver the best return for your investment. Our construction phase plans and risk assessments are subject to rigorous verification and on-site enforcement, and all of our personnel are trained and certified in putting the safety of students first and foremost.

We have constructed artificial turf, 3G, real grass and polymeric multi-use games areas for clients including Blackrock College, St Michaels College, St Marys College, Ballymena Academy, Friends School Lisburn and Grosvenor Grammer School to name a view. For schools, multi-use games areas (MUGA) can effectively convert small spaces into dedicated, high quality, durable sporting zones. If you'd like to maximise the potential for the spaces in and around your school grounds our team of engineers offer a free consultation.

Natural vs synthetic turf

We provide excellent facilities to help your students achieve their best, whether you are looking for hockey, football, rugby or multiple sport playing fields on one site.

Although it's hard to beat a great natural grass surface, synthetic turf pitches offer significantly lower maintenance costs and greater all weather playability compared to natural grass. We can explain the pros and cons for each system in depth.

Multiple considerations can impact your decision when choosing a surface, such as climatic challenges, the cost of maintainance, and heavy usage. To find out more and view options for your project, email info@tonypattersonsportsgrounds.com
