This project for LB Camden combines facilities for borough-wide school league sports with the needs of the adjacent primary school for play and physical education. The project involved overlaying the existing 3,000m2 pitch with a well-regulated dense macadam, and installing new floodlighting. Also included is a steel framed canopy for shelter and shading, storage for play and sports equipment, seating, and planting to reduce the effects of traffic noise and pollution. Work was carried out during the school term, with a hoarded-off area for children’s play provided at the centre of the site for most of the contract period.
