Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council appointed Clive Richardson Limited to carry out phase 2 of the redevelopment of the synthetic mini pitches at the Valley Leisure Centre in Newtownabbey. The Leisure Centre sits in a sprawling site just outside Belfast and plays a vital role in the local community.
Works undertaken by CRL included the clearance of the site of the existing pitches to allow for the creation of 4no. 5-a-side Mini Pitches. A stone base layer was installed, over which an porous bitmac engineered base was laid. A GAA, rugby and football compliant 3G pitch system was then installed on top of this.
Ancillary works including the installation of new fencing and rebound boards, the extension of existing access pathways, the creation of a new maintenance pathway and landscaping of the surrounding area was also completed.
