Kensington academy North Kensington Roof top MUGA
Active Leisure Contracts constructed this roof top sports pitch for Bouygues UK when the school was originally built in 2014. This included all the fencing roof netting and surfacing.
The surfacing was originally laid as a polymeric Rubber surface. Due to the terrible fire which occurred near by in 2018 the netting and surface was damaged beyond repair by falling debris and required total replacement.
In the few years since the school was built it had become clear that the school had been using the area predominantly for football and general exercise, so it was decided to change the polymeric rubber multisport surface to a surface ideal for football.
Active Leisure Contracts were contracted to design and supply a new 4th Generation Football surface (Soccer XCN 30) with underlying 20mm sports shock pad/drainage layer, complete with inlaid lines for five aside football. At the same time the dividing net and roof net were replaced.
Due to the location on the roof all the works were undertaken using access via an internal staircase and standard lift, so all material sizes and handling needed to be detailed to suit.
