Artificial Sports Surfaces
TGMS Ltd are specialists in the design, specification and project management for the construction of artificial sports surfaces. We are a completely independent consultancy practice which allows us to select the most appropriate surface, fencing, lighting and drainage depending on the customer’s usage needs and budgetary constraints.
We normally structure our service into discrete stages, although we are entirely flexible depending on our customer’s requirements:
We normally structure our services into discreet stages, although we are entirely flexible depending on our clients requirements.
The sports governing bodies (e.g. Sport England) have developed a range of performance quality standard (PQS) assessments for artificial playing surfaces that provide a benchmark for the minimum acceptable standard for:
- Infiltration rate (i.e. surface drainage rate)
- Gradient along and across the direction of play
- Surface evenness
- Surface hardness
- Ball rebound resilience
- Ball roll
PQS assessments form part of the contract management for “new-builds” to demonstrate compliance with the specifications and the criteria stipulated by sports governing bodies such as Sport England, England Rugby, English Hockey Association and The Football Association.
TGMS are able to undertake the full range of Performance Quality Standard assessments. The results from these are provided to the Client in a written report together with recommendations to address any areas where the facility may fail to meet the basic standards.
