Synthetic Sports Facilities

Why buy from the National Public Sector Framework?

The framework is compliant with procurement regulations and is accessible to any organisation within the public sector.

This framework covers the construction, installation, refurbishment, servicing and maintenance for a range of synthetic sports facilities, including:

  • Artificial grass pitches
  • Multi-use Games Areas (MUGAs)
  • Specialist courts
  • Cricket wickets
  • Athletics tracks
  • Any other external sporting facilities

The following benefits can be gained by installing a high-quality synthetic sports facility:

  • All year round use at any time (with appropriate maintenance and lighting provision)
  • Less maintenance than traditional grass facilities and less need for chemical usage
  • They can be heavily utilised as rest periods are not required
  • Additional income can be generated by providing the local community with access
  • They are an efficient use of space, other previously used areas of ground can be repurposed

It was awarded on 17th February 2020 and runs to 16th February 2023 with a possible extension to 16th February 2024.
