Our team can help with end to end projects of any scale, or can pick up a specific area for delivery.
Natural turf construction
Our specialist teams provide a full suite of end-to-end project solutions for all natural turf surfaces. This includes rootzone construction.
STRI ensures that all aspects of a sports construction project are carried out to the required standards, specification and schedule. We will work closely with contractors, architects, consultants, legal officials and local governments at all stages of the project; turf grow-ins, overseeding operations, general renovation practices, specialist concert preparation and recovery tasks.
Synthetic and hybrid construction
Carrick Sports have access to a state-of-the-art fully recyclable carpet hybrid turf solution. Dependent on rootzone requirements and type of usage, the hybrid carpet can be tailored to individual needs and installed by our expert in-house team.
We supply and install all artificial playing surfaces. Our maintenance regime includes:
- Moss, algae and weed control
- Drag brushing
- Powered brushing
- Infill sand/rubber application
- Deep cleaning
- Annual renovations
Multi-use game areas (MUGAs)
A multi-use games area, commonly known as a MUGA, can be a single playing surface or court area, or a full-size synthetic sports pitch facilitating a variety of sports.
We can support you with planning in advance of construction, and manage all elements of construction and surrounding infrastructure. This will include advise on surfaces, such as bitmac, polymeric or carpet surface.
The Springs Golf Club STRI was engaged by The Springs in 2020 to create an inventive solution to reduce water usage on the course. The golf club had recently been purchased by Darwin Escapes who began a significant investment plan across the entirety of the golf club, with the course itself being the first beneficiary.
Ilkley Lawn Tennis & Squash Club STRI was first engaged with Ilkley Tennis Club as part of an ongoing relationship with the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) following the longstanding provision of consultancy, research and tournament support services to The All England Club.
Harrogate Town A.F.C. The excitement of a potential long-awaited promotion to League 2 was met with a realisation that there’d be some big changes needed at the club to conform to EFL rules should they achieve it – one of which being that their synthetic home pitch would need to be replaced with a natural turf pitch.
Cleobury Mortimer Golf Club Cleobury Mortimer is a 27 hole parkland golf course situated in Shropshire, with aspirations to secure the year-round playability of the course through a fully bespoke drainage design and installation.
