SIS Pitches has completed another full service project, this time at St Paul’s School in London.

The full-size rugby pitch installed at the site in Hammersmith, West London, was SISTurf Rugger 65, laid on a 20mm in situ shockpad in order to meet the latest World Rugby standards.

Given St Pauls’ position as a leading independent school in the UK, there was understandably a comprehensive and competitive tender process. SIS Pitches presented great proficiency and knowledge in order to successfully win the project, enhancing their already outstanding references in this market.

The blueprint for a successful project was thorough, with design, planning, construction and ongoing maintenance all required. These works were all undertaken in-house by SIS Pitches, including all groundworks, construction, surfacing and fencing.

St Pauls School’s location posed some challenges during the planning process, with its proximity adjacent to bank of the River Thames leading to imposed ecology and arboriculture restrictions, alongside a particularly challenging access.

However, the diligence and professionalism of the SIS Pitches staff, coupled with the excellent partnership built with the client at the School, meant the entire project was completed in just nine weeks.

Edward Flute Chief Operating Officer at St Paul’s School, was very pleased with the finished project.

“We were extremely impressed with the professional manner in which SIS Pitches carried out the works at our site.

“Their team was able to overcome substantial logistical obstacles with thorough planning and no shortage of knowledge nor skill. To complete such a complex job in only nine weeks, ahead of schedule, has been testament to their professionalism.”

SIS Pitches is a part of a framework agreement to provide the design, manufacture, installation and maintenance of artificial grass pitches. The agreement is in support of the Rugby Football Union (RFU), Football Association (FA), Sport England, England Hockey and Football Foundation (FF) capital investment programmes.
