Our extensive experience allows us to fully understand the needs of our customers and combine them with the regulations that regulate this type of facility. In this way we can accompany them from the first phase of conceptualization and design, but also thinking about the entire useful life of the facility and future replacements.

Having extensive knowledge in CIVIL WORKS allows us to analyse the terrain and the environment, choose the best solution for the base and the sub-base and provide it with the best stability, according to the budget possibilities of our client. This way we guarantee the reliability of the future behaviour of the fields, because we directly control all the processes, making it possible to enjoy the facilities as long as possible.

BASE & SUB-BASE

HORIZONTAL DRAINAGE VERTICAL DRAINAGE
Drainage system in the field
  • Surface flow of water towards the perimeter of the playing field, where the gutters are located.
  • Infiltration of water into a water catchment system formed by drainage tubes located at the base of the playing field.
Slope of the surface
  • Four-gabled or gabled field.
  • Minimum required slope of 0.80%.
  • Recommended (but not necessarily) a minimum slope of 0.50%.
Water collection system
  • Gabled field: gutter located on the larger sides of the playing field.
  • Four-gabled field: gutter located on the perimeter of the playing field.
  • System of trenches and drainage tubes in fish-bone form under the playing field collecting water towards a larger diameter draining tube located on the larger sides of the field.
  • Direct relationship between the diameter of the draining tube and the distance between trenches.
Drainage – sewage system Connection
  • If the gutter has slope: direct connection to the sewage system.
  • If the gutter is flat: gutter drain connection to a water collection system at different points with concrete basin gravel and finally to the sewage system. This allows reducing the hydraulic section.
  • Drainage of drainage tubes system from lower to higher diameter to the sewage system.
Permeability requirement of the base
  • Impermeable.
  • High permeability
Base Typology (to choose from)
  • Asphalt over an artificial-graded aggregate layer.
  • Geodren layer over an artificial-graded aggregate layer.
  • Layer of VORASOIL (cement-stabilized soil) according to PG-3 regulations.
  • Several layers of different grain-sized gravel distribution.
Construction method
  • Execution of the pavement (if any).
  • Surface re-grading with a laser-guided grader in order to give the necessary planimetry to the field.
  • Supplying, spreading and compacting of material for the pavement base.
  • Execution of the chosen base (asphalt, cement-stabilized soil or geodren).
  • Execution of the pavement (if any).
  • Surface re-grading with a laser-guided grader in order to give the necessary planimetry to the field.
  • Implementation of draining ditches consisting of the opening of the ditch, placement of geotextile and drainage tubes and gravel filling.
  • Supplying, spreading and compacting of different grain-sized gravels.
Water recovery of the irrigation system
  • Enables the recovery of irrigation water.
  • Need to install a filter and a chlorination system on the water collection tank.
  • Not recommended in countries with low rainfall since the investment required is much higher than the return on this investment.
