Site: Inver Park Stadium
Contractor: FP McCann
Client: Larne Football Club
FP McCann's civil engineering team recently completed enabling and civil engineering works to facilitate Larne Football Club's brand new 4G football pitch at Inver Park Stadium in Larne, Co. Antrim.
Following the last game of the season, FP McCann commenced the replacement of Larne Football Club's pitch by demolishing a section of old terraces, the existing pitch boundary and removing the existing pitch. Excavation to the new design levels was then completed, followed by the importation and placement of sub-base aggregates supplied by FP McCann’s Loughside Quarry. A 100mm lateral drainage system was then installed utilising FP McCann’s precast concrete manhole rings and catchpits. Kerb edging, also supplied by FP McCann’s precast division, was then placed to encompass the pitch.
- Installed reinforced concrete foundations for the later installation of 4 no. 30m high mast lighting columns
- Installed an electrical infrastructure corridor around the pitch linking back to the stadia to allow control of the lighting systems
- Installed a 3kN pedestrian guard rail around the pitch perimeter
- Supplied the pitch equipment, including goal posts and team shelters
