The Haberdashers’ Aske’s Boys’ School was originally founded in 1690, actually as a hospital and school, just north of the City of London by a Royal Charter granted to the Worshipful Company of Haberdashers. A legacy from one Robert Aske, worth over £4 million in today’s money, was the initial funding source. The 17th century merchant would surely be impressed by the school’s status over 300 years later, since it regularly figures in the country’s top twenty schools for academic results, and pleased too with the energy and investment put into its outdoor facilities.
After successfully constructing the natural rugby pitches at HABS we were delighted to be invited back to tender for the re-surfacing of their 2 full size hockey pitches.
The two existing hockey pitches were refurbished and upgraded with TigerTurfs Evo Pro carpet which is a versatile, sand-dressed surface, ideal for a variety of sports including hockey within the education and community sectors. .The surface also meets with the International Hockey Federation (FIH) Global Performance Standard.
The contract consisted of:
Site clearance, new drainage, edgings, macadam, carpeting with TigerTurf Evo Pro, fencing & floodlighting.
The project was successfully completed on time and within the schools budget.
