Long-jump track

Following on from the excellent work we had already completed previously for Langley Park Girl’s School, we were chosen to support the Boy’s School on an important project to create a brand new long jump track. The project involved the complete formation of the long-jump track, including ground-works, excavation, the clearing of excess spoil and the preparation of MOT Type 1 aggregate sub-base. We also had to source specialist AstroTurf with lines pre-calibrated from a quality supplier, and create the sand landing pit.

2-week turnaround

The project had a very tight turnaround time; we were required to complete the job from start to finish in just two weeks. The Athletic Season was starting and the school required the track to be ready in time. It was also crucial that the installation met all of the requirements to ensure it complied with the International Athletics Association full-size long-jump standards.

The project involved the management of a number of contractors and the hire of specialist machinery, all expertly executed to the tight budget and within the two-week timeframe by the Price Building Consultancy teams.
