Tahunanui Bowling Club Synthetic Green Replacement
Project: Tahunanui Bowling Club Synthetic Green Replacement
Client: Tahunanui Bowling Club
Construction & Development
The existing sand filled synthetic green at Tahunanui Bowling Club was deteriorating and required replacing. The surface was providing inconsistency across the rinks, which was affecting playing performance characteristics such as draw and speed. The club wished to replace the surface with a similar surface.
Tahunanui Bowling Club contacted NZSTI to provide assistance in replacing the synthetic surface. The first phase was to provide a condition assessment of the green that the club could use to support their funding application. Our second phase was that on completion of the surface installation we would test the synthetic surface to ensure that it fully complied with all the eight performance characteristics required by the World Bowls Performance Standard.
NZSTI is the only organisation in New Zealand that is certified by World Bowls to test to their standard which gave the club reassurance that the green would be compliant for all levels of play and the contractor would take care with the installation.
