A 'turn-key' solution to new sports facility projects

Posted by Hannah Oakman | October 14, 2016 | Sports & Leisure

Investing in synthetic sports facilities can help schools stay that crucial step ahead of the competition – however, undertaking any significant capital investment project can be a challenge, especially if it involves several contractors. 

Sports surface specialist total-play Ltd offers a ‘turnkey’ solution that sees the company’s experienced in-house team undertake the entire project from start to finish, meaning you won’t need to employ any sub-contractors. From face-to-face meetings to assess and advise on the best solution and location for the new facility, through its design and specification, carrying out site clearance, preparatory groundworks and its ultimate installation, total-play can take the strain.

Whether you’re looking to create state-of-the-art cricket practice nets that meet the ECB’s rigorous standards, transform an old tennis court or car park into a versatile multi-use games area (MUGA), or install synthetic track and field facilities, total-play has the expertise to guide you from vision to reality. 

Alongside its own class-leading products - such as its ECB approved non-turf cricket pitch systems and ‘HD Protection Tunnel’ cocoon cricket netting system - total-play has forged strong partnerships with leading suppliers. It can source and procure everything from perimeter fencing to floodlights, integrated goal mouths to basketball hoops - in short, all the additional elements required to bring a project to fruition; even specifying bespoke elements to meet unique requirements.

This approach has seen the company work with a growing number of leading schools - including Merchant Taylor’s School, St Helen’s School, Clifton College, Churcher’s College, Bromsgrove School, Orwell Park School and Solihull School, to name just a few.
