During our initial consultation, we’ll help you to design a system that meets your requirements based on the various track options that we have available. We will then arrange a timetable for the installation itself, fitting all of our activity around your organisation’s schedule to minimise the potential for disruption.

Whether you are looking to start an athletics track construction project for an international venue or a school, college, university or leisure / athletics club, we can help from site surveys, planning and designs, soil investigation reporting and much more.

There are many different types of synthetic athletic track surfaces available, but ultimately, they fall into two distinct categories: Porous and Non-Porous


Porous track surfaces are designed so that water will flow through the surface to the underlying sub-base, allowing any moisture to filter through. In most cases, the athletics track will incorporate a porous aggregate sub-base and drainage system.

Porous track surfaces are a cost-effective solution for low level competition and training. This type of athletics track construction is the most popular in the UK.

The robust rubber granule base with a polyurethane topcoat provides a stable and supportive surface which is perfect for athletics clubs, colleges, and schools.


If at any stage your tracks require any resurfacing or general maintenance, our team will be more than happy to help. As well as maintaining tracks that we’ve installed for our existing partners, we also offer a standalone resurfacing package that’s available to clients.

Our experts

A key area where we differ from most sports contractors is that the majority of each project is carried out by our own directly employed resources; we have around 120 permanent employees and an extensive fleet of plant and machinery. All reflect our dedication to quality and enable us to build on our heritage of expertise, flexibility and commitment to be the best.
