This 10,000 metre square field was one of the first publicly available synthetic turf sports grounds of its size in Sydney.
Willoughby Council engaged DCE on the Northbridge Oval project to prepare tender documentation for the design and construction of a dual purpose artificial turf football (soccer) pitch to FIFA 1 Star standards, and cricket oval to Cricket NSW standard to replace the existing natural turf oval.
A key feature of the project is the Turf One cricket pitch. It can be raised and lowered hydraulically to sit flush with the outfield in order to eliminate the perennial trip hazard problem associated with temporary pitch covers.
