Prestige Sports Pitches won the Interserve contract to construct new Multi-Use Games Areas (MUGAs) as part of a comprehensive upgrade of primary school sports facilities in Northamptonshire.
Type 2 MUGA surfaces were laid. Each school’s requirements differed, depending on their ground and drainage conditions. Several required impermeable tarmacadam surfaces; others incorporated an open-textured, porous surface, laid onto a type-3 aggregate sub-base.
Storm water drainage options included:
- fall construction, draining to a linear channel feeding into a soakaway
- diffuser into mains storm water drainage
- check-dams to control the flow and discharge of water
- flow control chamber to attenuation tank.
Surface areas varied from 500m2 to 1200m2 and sports facilitated included netball, five-a -side and football training
