DIAGNOSIS, DESIGN AND DELIVERY
We believe you have to interrogate the soil before you can even
contemplate starting to put things right.
As a result we use the very latest in advanced surveying and soil
analysis technologies to accurately diagnose the causes of your
Remote sensing technology measures the mineralogy, physical and
chemical properties of the soil to produce a unique fingerprint
map of key characteristics.
Full topographic and site survey work adds to this knowledge of
the site, detailing the issues causing or likely to cause drainage
and surface performance problems.
Occasionally a piped drainage system may not necessarily be required.
Improving soil structure and hence drainage may be achieved through
alternative remediation approaches. Sport Organic's Engineers
are able to advise you on improved soil management practice to
enhance drainage performance.
Prior to the
commencement of construction all materials undergo a range of
physical laboratory tests including particle size distribution
and hydraulic conductivity. This is to ensure that the correct
quantity and depth of material is installed.
This culminates in the drawing up of a detailed Computer Aided
Design (CAD) plan of drainage designs and specifications unique
to your site.
of primary drainage infrastructure using accurate laser depth
control guarantees correct grades
Pipe and trench sizes are optimised to ensure minimum disruption
to the playing surface, reducing costly arising (spoil) disposal
charges and unsightly and unstable backfill lines.
Secondary drainage provides an extensive interceptor network
ensuring the maximum opportunity to remover surface water.
Finally the pitch is extensively aerated and de-compacted to
produce a well-structured, free draining surface suitable for
the resuming of play, typically no more than 10 days after completion.
