The project involved full groundworks including excavatiing to formation level and topsoil removal, site specific drainage and the construction of a stable engineered subbase.
Phase 2 of works included the installation of 7,800 sq/m 60mm artificial grass grass carpet with shock pad, perimeter kerbing, sports fencing, ball stop netting, spectator railing and a tarmacadam roadway. We also moved the existing floodlight columns back to allow for 3m between edge of pitch and to provide maximum lighting for the new extended area.

Feedback from our client
Here’s what Mark Caslin, club chairman had to say about working with PST Sport and their new state-of-the-art-facility:
“I was first introduced to PST Sport by the extremely helpful Derek Moore of Stella Maris Football Club. When I got the opportunity to fund an all-weather pitch in Whelan Park on behalf of Larkview FC I sought a number of quotations. I was amazed at how unresponsive and/or unprofessional most of the potential suppliers tenders were. There was only one company that tendered properly, could answer all questions, could meet a high specification and that ticked all the boxes, including cost efficiency – namely PST Sport.
This was a difficult job as we wanted much more than a square pitch, we wanted to maximise the total Astro area, move lighting, install fencing around corners, different height ball stop netting, tarmac, satisfy neighbours and tidy up general services. PST looked after everything from design to completion, even when we spotted opportunities to enhance the design during installation, as will happen in a volunteer run club, PST always had a practical, cost efficient solution with no fuss, there was no attempt to overcharge for extras.
The project was delivered on time despite some bad weather at a crucial time and the very few snags were dealt with efficiently and in some cases without us even spotting them. PST clearly took pride in the work and took full responsibility from start to finish
Over the life of the installation I have come to implicitly trust PST and have huge faith in their work. PST were an excellent choice for us as a partner to develop the club’s facilities, their passion matches our own ambition to have the very best.”
