In the Spring of 2012, the United World College decided to proceed with the construction of a full size football-rugby pitch, a surface complying with both FIFA Standards (FIFA 2 Star) and World Rugby Regulation 22. The project was assigned to Limonta Sport and its local partners, who recommended a professional system with a resilient and high performing monofilament carpet Max S to include 100% organic and natural infill InfillPro Geo.
The construction of the artificial turf took four months. This time frame allowed for the removal of the old natural turf surface, building and stabilizing the sub-base, installing the proper drainage system and preparing the turf for sports to be played on it. Works included construction of a retaining wall and 12-meter-high net fronting expressway, plus installation of floodlights.
The total investment was approx. SGD 1.4 million.
Special maintenance training was provided to all school field personnel, demonstrating on-site the importance of correct maintenance procedures. Limonta Sport and its partners take care of maintenance operations biannually, in order to guarantee a high performance, long-lasting system for high level football and rugby.
The system, already selected by top European clubs for its excellent playing characteristics, provides a unique low heating turf system (thanks to the properties of InfillPro Geo) at the same time ensuring the health and safety criteria of both sports are complied with resulting in good foot stability and energy restitution values (an artificial turf system that comes very close to natural turf characteristics).
