O'Brien Contractors strike gold with Eastbourne Hockey Club
O'Brien Contractors has completed a hockey pitch resurfacing project at Eastbourne Hockey Club in East Sussex.

The nine-week contract involved; the removal of the existing 16 year old sand filled synthetic grass surface, the adjustment of existing sub base and the installation of a 5027 m² DOMO Hockey Xtreme MDC Ultra sand filled synthetic grass hockey pitch with inlaid lines.

Prior to installation, the appropriate sub base tests were conducted to ensure levels in each working area were in accordance with the specification.

The works, which took place within a live sports facility, also included surveying and making adjustments to the existing Lava/ Rubber Crumb Dynamic layer.

Steve Hillman, General Manager – Sports Division at O'Brien Contractors, said: "One of our key capabilities is our commitment to providing our clients with the most efficient and cost effective service available at all times.

The new hockey pitch contract is something we have been particularly proud to have won and has provided us with the opportunity to show case our sports pitch capabilities and our commitment to delivering total customer satisfaction."
