Preparing for a proven surface
With increasing demand for their onsite pitches at the day and boarding school for 1500 boys, Whitgift appointed White Horse Contractors to construct a hybrid solution to maximise their sports surface utilisation. Upon completion, the school will benefit from a new full-size rugby pitch, junior rugby pitch and playground that will maximise playing time for students.
Working as part of the project team, lead contractors White Horse Contractors, highly-skilled sports consultants TGMS
and Daniel Ratling (Grounds and Estate Manager, Whitgift
) worked collaboratively to finalise a design solution that ensures the school’s needs will be met when it comes to maximising space for students on the existing site.
Particular care and attention will be paid on-site to the surrounding wildlife, ensuring minimal disruption to Whitgift’s resident flamingos and peacocks. Our team will operate the plant and machinery with the technical skill and consideration required to prepare the ground, ready for the industry-leading hybrid surface to be installed.
