The Hive is a large footballing Hub in North London. The property hosts the main stadium for Barnet FC amongst other notable clubs including Barnet Bees, Tottenham Ladies and a number of football academies. The first part of the project was completing 40,000 sq/m of natural grass improvement works for the club. The second part of the project was the replacement of their 3G training pitch.

Pitch replacement project

Barnet FC artificial pitch

PST Sport completed the resurfacing of a full-size FIFA Quality Pro training pitch that is used primarily by the Football Academy and in the evenings for commercial rentals.

Our solution was to fully recycle the old playing surface prior to regrading and compacting the dynamic base layer to ensure porosity and regularity. PST Sport determined that the best solution for the playing surface was to use a preformed performance pad laid beneath our Superb 45 carpet, infilled with silica sand and sbr rubber. This solution delivered FIFA QP performance, tested and certified upon completion by Sports Labs.

The playing surface has been an immediate hit with footballs future stars who train at the academy and we look forward to completing further facilities within the property at The Hive, London.
