For this particular project PST Sport took on a design and build role and worked seamlessly with Principal Contractors Glasgiven Contracts Ltd. who were the main contractors for Tyrrelstown Educational Campus. The project included 13,000 sq/m of 60mm artificial grass carpet, shock pad and full groundworks. The sub-base make up alone involved 12,000 tonne of stone.

Feedback from our client
We really value strong feedback from clients. Here’s what Paddy Cassidy, Contracts Manager for Glasgiven Contracts Ltd. had to say about working with PST Sport:
“Glasgiven Contracts Limited secured through a competitive tender process the contract for Tyrrelstown Educational Campus in Tyrrelstown Dublin 15 in July 2015. This 1000 pupil post primary school includes the development of a full size GAA 3G playing surface. Following successful negotiations, PST Sport were awarded the 3G GAA pitch contract.
From the outset, it was obvious that PST Sport held the in-house expertise and technical ability to successfully deliver this element of our project. The nature of the site presented some unique challenges. This included a “live” stream which traversed the pitch, overhead ESB lines that had to be diverted prior to construction and the rather poor existing ground conditions.
PST Sport took a lead in the design development of the pitch and proactively engaged with all stakeholders and brought to the table cost effective and workable solutions without compromising on safety, quality or programme. Innovative measures developed by PST Sport included use of geotextiles and sub base drainage to ensure the final surface level of the pitch will be correct and maintained for the lifetime of the pitch.
PST Sport completed this project safely on time, within budget and to the highest standards. They worked with Glasgiven Contracts Limited to add value to the project by ensuring the 3G pitch is certified to meet the requirements of major sporting codes. The standard of finish achieved by PST Sport on the pitch is exemplary and is a credit to the management and operatives of PST Sport who we found to be courteous, knowledgeable and driven.
Glasgiven Contracts Limited formed an excellent relationship with PST Sport during this project and would have no hesitation in employing PST Sport on any of our future projects. Indeed we are currently working with PST Sport on a live tender containing a full size 3G pitch. We look forward to continuing our excellent working relationship with PST Sport into the future.”
