UCLAN – BURNLEY CAMPUSPrice on Request
Project: To supply the university campus of Burnley with 750sqm of our finest Emerald turf for the diamond jubilee and the future.
Product: A unique and highly popular grass, it grows to its own specification and is amongst the leading grass products on the market. Consisting of a ryegrass mixture that guarantees strength and quality and easy to maintain, it has everything that was needed to provide a stunning landscape.
Description: Constant supplies to the borough councils helped UCLAN get in touch with Greenvale and chose ourselves as their turf suppliers. After a contractor of ours, Groundwork Direct had been in touch with measurements and ideas for UCLAN’s grounds we quoted them a competitive rate then supplied them with 11 pallets of our greenest turf for them to lay. Greenvale had the royal visit to bear in mind, not only would our turf be the first thing seen at the campus, it would be seen by the Queen and Prince Charles, on the diamond jubilee visit.
Challenges: Bearing in mind the turf had to be hard wearing due to the winter periods coming up with harsh weather and the vast rain falls that can sometimes have an effect on tender’s grasses, we decided the Emerald Turf was the most relevant of our grasses for the project.
Furthermore, our turf was to be the base of a £142,000 art sculpture that was designed to represent Burnley’s ‘progressive education, innovation and enterprise culture’. Being the gateway to the town the “Rainbow Gate Structure” it had to look outstanding as the entrance to the town centre and our Emerald Turf was the perfect complement to a wonderful feature.
Conclusion: Overall, Greenvale and UCLAN were very pleased with the results and they’re certainly glad they made the right decision in choosing us as their turf suppliers.
