Dubmire Primary School, Sunderland

Dubmire Primary School, Sunderland

The Project

  • Thornton Sports were appointed to resurface Dubmire Primary School’s existing sand filled artificial grass sports facility.

  • The School has recently been awarded funding through Sports Premium Funding and as a result have been improving their sports facilities and physical activity both within the school and surrounding community.

The Works 

  • Works involved replacing the existing sand filled artificial grass surface with Thornton Sports’ in house UK manufactured SoccerTurf 40M surface.

  • Small remedial repairs to the facility and surrounding fencing were also completed.

 The Client 

Jill Bainbridge, School Business Manager from Dubmire Primary School says:

“We had a two week window to remove the old surface and resurface with 3G our multi use games area. We received a number of quotes from various companies including Thornton’s, due to originally using Thornton’s when the school was first built and the standard of service we received we were more than happy to offer them the contract. The work was carried out to a very high standard at a very competitive price and well within the two week timescale. The staff conducted themselves in a very professional manner, respecting the premises and local community using the school facilities. We hadn’t originally arranged for Thornton’s to remove the old surface from site but at the last minute we were let down by the company, Thornton’s stepped in and very kindly arranged this for us, due to the closeness of the re-opening of the school after half term we were very grateful. The pupils are absolutely over the moon with the new surface and the local community are also benefiting! We would highly recommend Thornton’s based on the two occasions of working with them.”
