SAHD KEY OFFERINGS



TURN-KEY MULTI-PURPOSE SYNTHETIC TURF PITCH

With South Africa’s volatile climate and a scarcity of water, irrigation for sports fields have become a luxury. With this in mind, SAHD has developed a streamlined design and construction of multipurpose synthetic turf pitches. Uses of these pitches include but are not limited to:

Five-A-Side Soccer
Touch Rugby
Action Cricket
Yoga & Pilates
Stretching
Exercise

RECREATIONAL AREAS & SKATE PARKS

SAHD has broken down skate park and recreational park design into two main categories. These are usability (i.e. how the park is used by skaters) and functionality (i.e. how the park is used by the broader public and skaters when they’re not physically rolling around the facility). These factors are taken into consideration with traffic and environmental impact assessments to design the safest, yet most functional park possible.

(A) Usability Factors

Flow
Traffic
Speed
Difficulty
Visibility (within the skating area)
Stylistic discipline

(B) Functional Factors

Capacity
Seating/resting
Access
Visibility (into and around the park)
Safety and Drainage
Aesthetic Appeal, Landscaping
Spatial and budgetary constraints/opportunities
Security, operations, and maintenance
