Hillsview Soccer Pitch


Hillsview Reserve, The Great Eastern Way, South Morang, Victoria.

Turf One consolidated its presence as a leading sports field building contractor with the award by the City of Whittlesea to design and construct a synthetic turf soccer pitch certified to FIFA 1 STAR.

Construction of the pitch over the footprint of the existing natural grass pitch presented challenges as the site had been built up with a significant depth of uncontrolled fill. In response to geotechnical advice the sub-grade was capped with a 250mm thick layer of mudstone. A porous base of coarse and fine aggregates increasing in depth to 300mm at the western side provides an effective drainage medium for the surface.

Installation of FieldTurf Prestige™ XM60 synthetic turf will provide a highly durable surface for Bundoora United FC and other users of the facility every time their players run out onto the pitch. The project is expected to be completed mid May 2012.
