Construction & Development
In preparation for the Rugby World Cup, Nelson City Council needed to redevelop the rugby pitch at Trafalgar Park in Nelson. NZSTI’s role was to prepare the specifications and oversee the construction works. The rugby pitch was redeveloped into a sand carpet utilising recycled glass sand, an eco-friendly alternative to river-dredged sand. The use of recycled glass sand for a winter sports pitch construction was a world first. The pitch is now recognised as one of the best in New Zealand.
