The construction of a third water turf at the Northland Hockey Association was completed in April 2014. With this being an international facility, there were strict tolerances of various elements of the turf including the fall to avoid any areas of slope or any wallows.
This facility is being used on a daily basis, hosting both national & international tournaments & has added enormous benefit to the Northland hockey community. From a bare grass sports field, Steve Bowling Contracting managed all site works including bulk earthworks, drainage, foundations, fencing, servicing water requirements, concrete footpaths & walkways, and landscaping.
Alongside the construction of the water turf, there was also water supply works & parking bay changes that were carried out by Steve Bowling Contracting. Being diverse meant that Steve Bowling Contracting were able to service or manage all areas of the contract that needed to be met & managed all sub-contractors on site efficiently & safely.
“Hockey Northland’s 3rd turf project was started in mid-October of 2013 with local company Steve Bowling Contracting being awarded the main contract. We were impressed during this project with the assistance and expertise that the SBC staff provided. They were able to provide suggestions/solutions to the various problems that arise on a project of this size and some of these suggestions reduced the costs significantly. The project was completed on time and the playing surface has been well received by our hockey community. We recently we hosted the NHL (2015) tournament and have had an unbelievable amount of positive feedback regarding the Hockey Northland facility of which SBC has played a major part. We were very fortunate to have such a professional and helpful contractor on this project. We have utilised SBC on some smaller projects since then with similar high standards achieved again.” Grant McLeod – CEO, Northland Hockey Association – 30 October 2015
