Moving the earth for all-weather running track and 3G Pitch at Ammanford
When GD Harries were appointed as the principal contractor to create an all-weather running track and 3G sports pitch at the Amman Valley Leisure Centre, we knew we were taking on an interesting challenge.
The newly completed project, which commenced in May 2023, provides a 6-lane synthetic running track and all-weather football/rugby pitch. The new facility will used by Ysgol Dyffryn Aman secondary school and Actif Leisure, who operate Amman Valley Leisure Centre and will hire the facility out in the evenings to local sports teams and clubs as well as other members of the public.
Utilising the expertise of our in-house civil engineering team,. GD Harries undertook the preliminary earthworks, which involved moving 5000m3 of soil. The surplus soil was used to landscape the site, significantly reducing lorry movements and disposal costs.
