"It is not often you get to see a pitch being built layer by layer. It has definitely given us a greater understanding of what goes on underneath the surface which will hopefully help us to better manage the pitch." l CRL- Clive Richardson Limited - was the main contractor, working closely with sports turf consultancy TGMS, which designed the project. Caddick Construction managed the project and the undersoil heating pipes were laid by contractor, Ken Pryor & Sons. " It is not often you get to see a pitch being built layer by layer.
