Last month, we announced our selection by QPR to construct their new revolutionary training ground pitches.

White Horse Contractors have begun earthworks in West London as the exciting new training ground development commences.

Total football transformation

Following mobilisation to the Heston site, White Horse have begun initial site clearance and earthworks.

Using our fleet of specialist sports turf plant and machinery, the team have begun ground preparation works ready for the all-important sub-base construction, crucial for the performance of GrassMaster’s hybrid stitched installation.

The phase one site is 30,000sqm and will include 3 full-size pitches, grid training areas, a goalkeeper training area and a rehabilitation space. All areas in phase one will benefit from the proven and trusted GrassMaster hybrid turf. White Horse will also be installing state of the art undersoil heating and floodlights to complete this elite footballing facility as part of QPR’s vision to provide the club with a training facility to be proud of.

White Horse are continuing to work closely with the club to ensure a collaborative delivery approach. Contracts Manager Colin McBeth has been extremely pleased with the progress so far:

“We are delighted to be making progress in Heston. Our guys are happy to be here and it’s exciting to see the early developments of the new pitches and the site itself”
