ST. PATRICK’S ACADEMY, DUNGANNON

This project included the construction of a range of new sporting facilities at the new build St Patrick’s Academy Dungannon, Co Tyrone, to include 4 nr new synthetic surfaced Tennis Courts, Soccer training pitch (90m x 53.5m) and a new full size GAA pitch (145m x 90m). The sports facilities were constructed in close proximity to each other on site.
A substantial earthworks programme was completed to create a reduced level area for the pitches. Lateral drainage and collector drains were installed to each playing area. The sub base formation layer was created using imported type 3 aggregates with a compacted blinding layer. A geotextile layer was applied to the tennis courts area then overlaid with open grade bitmac. The playing surface was finished with sand dressed synthetic sports surface to ITF standards.
3m high perimeter fencing and gates were installed to the courts including posts, uprights, panels and bases were installed alongside tennis net posts, sockets and nets.
