STRI works with local authorities, schools and other educational establishments to support the design, development and maintenance of all natural and artificial sports surfaces.

Our specialist sports turf consultants have years of practical experience at grassroots level, delivering single/multi pitch sites and local authority amenity areas.

We offer advice and cost-effective solutions for the design, construction and management of all types of sports surfaces, including football, rugby, cricket, hockey, tennis and multi-sport surfaces.

STRI believes in supporting clients to develop good quality and sustainable sports pitches that suit your requirements, budgets and timings. Our consultants ensure that your projects are completed to the required specifications, using good quality materials and equipment. Each pitch or surface installed will reach the required quality standards, and we will provide supportive guidelines on annual maintenance programmes.
