The Total Turf Solutions Process
TTS is a solutions-driven organisation priding itself on answering all sports surface challenges; including drainage, construction, and agronomy. We provide a common sense approach to sport surface consultancy by using our simple, four-phase structure as outlined below:
All specifications are in accordance with performance standards set out by Sport England and the National Governing Bodies of Sport as well as the Institute of Groundsmanship (IOG) Performance Quality Standards (PQS). These standards are a requisite design benchmark of all funding applications. Once contacted, one of our technical consultants will discuss the proposed project with you and, if required, conduct an on site meeting. Following discussions, a proposal will be submitted detailing the required service and fee structure.
Phase One: Investigation
The purpose of this phase is to investigate and understand all the issues. Communication between client and consultant is vital along with a thorough inspection of the site or surface, including laboratory tests. Once the facts are established, a feasibility study will present the findings. The report will identify the problem, the solution and outline industrial costs.
Phase Two: Solution
This phase puts forward the solution in the form of a design specification. To provide a basis for contractor procurement detailed specifications and a bill of quantities are produced. Each design is tailored to suit individual clients and fulfil Performance Quality Standards required by the governing bodies of sport and funding agencies.
Phase Three: Implementation
Phase 3 is the practical execution of the project. This includes contractor procurement and supervision. To ensure the potential of the design contractor monitoring is crucial. This includes quality control of materials, sequence of operations, design interpretation, and project sign-off.
Phase Four: Management
The sustainability and potential of any project is controlled by how the surface is maintained and prepared. Phase 4 supports the client by providing all the necessary information for a client to optimise their playing surfaces;
- Detailed schedule of operations
- Working practices
- Material specifications
- Equipment recommendations
