Sport is an integral part of children’s education and St Tiernan’s Community School have a long tradition of involvement in sports. Investing in top class sports facilities is an investment in children’s health. Fundamentally, all-weather pitches offer so much to schools and have become invaluable, especially in the wet winter months.
PST Sport is delighted to have been appointed as the design and build company for the development of a full-size 6,100 sq/m FIFA Approved artificial grass pitch at St Tiernan’s Community School in Ballinteer for principal contractors, BAM Ireland.
This top of the range recreational space will be a huge boost for everyone at the school and indeed, the wider community. Excavation works are expected to start in the coming weeks and weather permitting, the project is expected to take 8-10 weeks to complete.
The project will include all sub base works and drainage installation. We designed the sub base and drainage system to accommodate the new surfacing solution to deliver the most technologically advanced artificial turf pitch. Ancillary works will include perimeter kerbing, 2.4m high fencing and 3.6m high ball stop netting.
SUPERB 50, our premier artificial product will then be laid onto a preformed shockpad with sand and a performance layer of SBR. Meeting FIFA Standards, SUPERB 50 is an advanced yarn that excels partly due to the C8 polymer used during the manufacturing process and the yarn’s advanced diamond shape makes it strong from every side. Due to the ability of the fibre to “stand up”, ball roll is as close to a high-quality natural turf pitch as possible, whilst the ease with which the yarn allows players to twist and turn, takes football on artificial grass to a new level.
Once complete, the new state-of-the-art surface will be independently tested to FIFA requirements.
