Pitchcraft undertook the Design and Construction of the historic and iconic North Port Oval for Melbourne Stadiums Limited under an agreement struck by the AFL and the City of Port Phillip.
Pitchcraft worked closely with the client accepting many passionate and well considered design contributions from many stakeholders including the Port Melbourne Football Club, The Port Melbourne Cricket Club and the AFL.
The prevalence of contaminated soils resulting from a ‘post industrial’ site, also posed a factor during the design phase with strict adherence required to the terms laid out in the geo-tech report.
Pitchcraft are very proud of the elite surface they have been able to provide the Port Melbourne sporting community- a surface that has become the envy of all rival clubs.
North Port Oval now boasts a facility that offers a very high standard natural playing surface offering safe conditions for players and athletes all year round.
