In 2019, work finished on the sensational School of Science and Sport at Brighton College. The state-of the art building boasts 18 university-standard laboratories, a dedicated strength and conditioning suite, a 25-metre swimming and a beautiful roof garden created for the students to use during the day but also to host events and drinks receptions outside of school hours.Fieldform
Fieldform were appointed by the main contractor, McLaren to install a series of amenity areas on the roof. Due to the rooftop location, traditional construction methods could not be used creating an opportunity for Fieldform to design a bespoke and site-specific solution. Their solution utilised a crated drainage system backfilled with shingle combined with a tile-format shock pad and our Finesse Deluxe carpet. Fieldform chose Finesse Deluxe because of it’s high-quality, luxurious feel and hard-wearing properties. It also comes with a fire rating required to be used within a building of this stature.
The time frame for the project was rigid to ensure the new facilities were delivered in time. Fieldform faced many challenges including extreme weather, heat and rainfall making surfacing works difficult. However, these issues were overcome, and the project was finished to a high-standard and on time.
Students at Brighton College can now enjoy socialising on their new terrace both during and after school with unrivalled costal views. The comfort, quality and durability of their TigerTurf artificial grass will ensure the school has a unique space to enjoy for many years to come.
