The UK’s premier artificial grass manufacturer

College of North Atlantic Qatar

Doha, Qatar

In February, 2018, CNAQ awarded a contract to Nakheel Landscapes to replace an existing 9,800m2 full sized artificial field with TigerTurf’s, Rugby 360.  Rugby 360 was chosen because the College will share the field with a sports academy, and usage levels are expected to be high.  This is the first field to be installed with Rugby 360 in Qatar.

The bidding process was very competitive with six companies bidding for the work. The client’s Bid Team visited various other projects completed by Nakheel within Qatar as part of the bidding process. However, it was the combination of Nakheel’s reputation and TigerTurf’s presence in the market that secured the project.

The CNAQ project included the removal of the previous grass and the re-grading of the rock sub-surface to create 0.25% gradient to 4 sides of the field to help with lateral drainage.  This meant the removal of about 20cm of sub-surface from the field.  Once removed, the surface was then laser levelled and compacted.

The contract also included the replacement of the existing halogen floodlights for LED; the installation of perimeter drainage; supply of 8 mobile goals, 2 player’s benches and a trolley to carry a mobile cricket wicket.

Nakheel have been the dealer of TigerTurf for many years in Qatar and have installed a great many sports fields and landscaping areas.  TigerTurf has now become arguably the most recognizable artificial grass brand in Qatar.

The Rugby 360  system was installed together with Trocellen’s ProGame 5010XC shock pad, and as infill, rounded silica sand and EPDM green granules performance infill.  Apart from the full field white line marking, the field was also marked with blue lines for 3 cross field mini-pitches.

Total project duration from signature to completion was 26 weeks and was completed in September 2018 in time for the start of the academic year.

Date Project Completed: September 2018

Area: 9800sqm
