Key Challenges

As with any major stadia the stadium bowl structure and the need for roof apertures to completely cover spectating patrons have a massive impact on the local environmental and climatic conditions found on the pitch.

Shading, lack of sunlight, poor airflow and reduced temperature all have negative affects in the management of turf grass and its performance. This in turn with increased moisture porosity and reduced aeration porosity along with the risk potential of rainfall events create poor agronomic conditions that can also impact severely the playing performance conditions of the playing surface.

Solution

The client and their consultants chose HG Turf Group to design and construct the field of play at Bankwest Stadium to meet the challenges created by the construction of the seating bowl. HG were well positioned to meet the Design Brief requirements and the AirPAT Vacuum Ventilation System was chosen along with hybrid grass.

AirPAT is used by the stadium curators as a natural grass rootzone management system to ensure that the profile is managed to create the best possible growing environment for natural grass, all year round.  The ability to manage the aeration and moisture in the profile is also greatly beneficial in managing the field for sports and non-sports events such as concerts.

Our staff are experts in the turf industry and are ready to discuss your requirements for your next project with you.
