New Multi Use Games Area is the envy of local Primary Schools

 The construction of a new synthetic grass MUGA has made All Saints' C of E Primary School in Ilkley the envy of other schools in the area!

The completion of the MUGA in Autumn 2009 marked the culmination of an exciting vision by the school to develop an existing natural grass area on the school site. An initial site inspection by one of Thornton Contract's experienced Contracts Managers led to a detailed design being put forward complete with precise costings. Following further consultation with our dedicated team, the school officially appointed Thornton Contracts to carry out the project. 


The Product

The MUGA, including two recessed areas to accommodate goals, is surfaced with our 'Classic 10' synthetic grass. This surface has proved to be a fantastic option particularly in primary school situations. It can be installed without any sand infill which eliminates the chance of eye irritation by young users. Without sand infill this also proves beneficial to the school caretaker as this means minimal maintenance is required. Furthermore, being UK manufactured, the selection of 'Classic 10' not only helps to support the UK economy but also helps to reduce the carbon footprint of the school.

An in-situ rubber shockpad layer was installed beneath the synthetic grass to ensure a more cushioned feel which will enhance the playing characteristics of the surface for sports such as 5-a-side football.   


The 300+ pupils at the school are certain to reap the rewards of the new MUGA for many years to come which means that physical education will be maintained whatever the weather.
