The construction process involved the excavation of the green area to a suitable sub-base, plus the supply and installation of a pump well collection and transfer tank. This tank collects and then transfers the new greens drainage water into the existing drainage system was previously installed when Turf Drain Australia built the other two natural turf bowling green’s in 1997. The three bowling green’s collected drainage water is then collected on site for reuse by the Club.
The methodology used was our concrete enclosed bowling green design, consisting of a concrete sub-base, conical in shape, with the concrete ditch walls incorporated into the floor slab. This results in a bowling green that is enclosed within a stable structure and thereby not being affected by ground water movement or external root infestation.
Our scope of works included all excavation, concreting, irrigation and drainage works, plus the aggregate and growing medium installation.
Our highly specialised bowling green construction processes and equipment allowed us to complete these works in the narrow time window allowed.
