Tight deadlines and even tighter site access. These were just some of the challenges we had to overcome with this project for the Veneto Club, a project supported by the State Government through the North East Link Project. Thankfully, these obstacles were nothing new for our experienced Tuff Group crew and we were able to power through them and deliver two elite synthetic pitches for our clients.
Working as a subcontractor for Mainbrace Constructions, we were able to provide the full construction package. This included all the earthwork, fencing, lighting and surrounding landscape and concrete work. With a lot of work planned, a tight turnaround time and even tighter access to the site we knew this wasn’t going to be an easy build. Not to mention, we encountered subgrade issues that needed to be addressed to ensure the structural integrity of the base. Fortunately, we had multiple trades working side by side to help each other which made it easier to take on each challenge as they came up.
With the high level of importance of the client and significance of the project to the club and the wider community, we assigned some of our very best to carry out this project. Industry veteran and Tuff Group Commercial Operations Manager Travis Knight led the charge to help our team deliver the high standards Tuff Group is known for. Anthony Rodriguez, Ryan Wilson, Garth Andrews, John Raymond, and each member of our crew also made key contributions and put in long hours to get the job done right and on time. From the moment this project began in October 2020 our team hit the ground running until the day it was completed in March 2021.
Everyone involved with the project was very happy with the final outcome, as the resulting ‘A’ Grade facility puts the existing pitch to shame. Not to mention, the new facility opens up a wide range of benefits for our clients and the local community as they now have a top-tier facility they can use for 60+ hours a week enabling many grades of footballers the opportunity to showcase their skills on a daily basis. The Veneto Club will also have the luxury of potentially leasing the field out at various stages to gain an even greater return on investment.
Overall, the project was a complete success and a great example of what is possible when you put a team of people who are dedicated to delivering greatness.
