What Type of Natural Turf Sports Ground Design & Construction Do I Need?
With all local government authorities undertaking significant capital works programs yearly to improve or reconstruct natural turf sports grounds there are many design options and issues when planning what type of natural turf surface I need and then awarding and managing these types of projects. Using contemporary past projects as reference, this presentation will focus on simple and best practice examples of what is required to complete and manage a successful turf design and what type of construction is needed. Topics discussed will include graphic site investigation techniques, stakeholder collaboration, design types and tender issues. In addition, discussion will also cover construction management strategies, key witness inspections, and final handover processes. The presentation will provide a quick, simple, and realistic snapshot of the varying issues. The presentation can allow for an interactive question and answer session in conclusion for attendees.
