Business Manager, Sherburn High School
I would like to say how helpful, professional and efficient SIS Pitches (UK) Ltd were during the 3 months they were on site constructing our new full size 3G artificial Grass Pitch which was completed in July 2017.
It was a pleasure dealing with SIS Pitches both on a day to day basis and also at our regular site meetings where they kept us fully informed at all time. They had rigorous systems in place including health and safety procedures which passed all scrutiny from our local council.
Staff on site were always approachable, friendly and very knowledgeable. Regional directors/manager also visited regularly and were always available to answer any queries we had.
SIS Pitches went above and beyond the practicalities by accommodated our exam period where construction noise needed to be kept to a minimum when students were sitting their exams nearly. They were flexible where they could and considerate when needed.
At the final handover meeting only one minor issue was raised which was swiftly rectified and underlined the first class service we experienced from them throughout disruptive and inconvenient process involved in building a 3G pitch on a school site during term time. Thank youJill Pounder, 16th August 2017
Partnership & Project Manager (Sport), University of Hull
It has been a pleasure working with SIS Pitches during our Sports Grounds development; from tender through to design and delivery, the attention to detail and professionalism has been outstanding. The communication throughout the project has been excellent and helped support the engagement with our students and community users. During the project all SIS Pitches staff upheld high standards of site cleanliness and safety ensuring our other services could continue as normal.
The University and our customers are all very happy with the final pitches, the quality of the pitches and the finish, thus supporting our vision of sporting excellence.Steve Curtis, 26th July 2017
CEO OF OLYMPIACOS ACADEMY
We are very pleased by choosing to cooperate with SISGrass in order to establish the hybrid system. Firstly because we improved and upgraded the pitch in our stadium ‘Georgios Karaiskakis’. Secondly because of their professionalism they managed to perform in difficult circumstances and to accomplish the works. We are proud to have this playing surface, the first in Greece and would be please to recommend to other clubs.George Pavlou, July 2016
TRAINING FACILITY MANAGER, BESIKTAS JK
Installation of SIS Pitches latest hybrid system pitch technology SISGRASS will be a touchstone of our team’s success. By having an all-year round mint condition surface for players – both on stadium and training pitch- it will give a consistent concentration for better play to all technical and field team. “Working with SIS Pitches has already feels like we have taken one step further towards to a new era of football play excitement.Mr Ilker Yilmaz, January 2016
MANAGER, HULL CITY TIGERS FC
With SISGRASS, SIS Pitches has not only matched the competition I believe they have bettered it. The accuracy of the stitching was amazing and was also cleaner and neater. Not having to worry about major oil leaks was also a huge comfort. Being electric is a huge step forward. The time on site was also greatly reduced, the whole pitch being done extremely quickly with just one machine. Its playability is excellent and all in all SISGRASS is a massive step forward, one which will benefit many clubs and training grounds in the months and years ahead.Alan Ferguson, July 2015
DEPUTY ASSISTANT HEAD, VALLEY PARK COMMUNITY PRIMARY
We have really enjoyed training on the new pitches so far and as players we know that excellent surfaces like these, especially during the winter months, can help give us an advantage over the course of a season. A good training surface is also important when it comes to injury prevention too and I’m sure our new pitches will bring us many more benefits as the months progress.Michael Dawson, Oct 2015
HEADMISTRESS, CUNDALL MANOR SCHOOL
Cundall Manor School required SIS Pitches to deliver a turnkey package to a tight budget and deadline. The company were very accommodating and worked closely with us throughout the delivery of the project. Regular and open communication in the run up to the start of the project and then throughout the build ensured the senior management from the school were kept aware of progress and developments at all times, and that there was no slippage in either timescale or costs.
It was paramount that no-one’s safety either on site or around the site, was compromised. Strict adherence to Health and Safety protocols, both statutory and those requested by the school, ensured this was so throughout the duration of the project. Similarly, the professional conduct of the entire site team, the general tidy appearance of site times and the minimal disturbances to normal school day activities and use of adjacent sports grounds, were all exemplary. The superb playing surface has been eagerly used by a range of children from ages 6 – 16, hockey is a major sport at Cundall and the opportunity to play on our own astro has been wonderful.Amanda Kirby, October 2015
MANAGING DIRECTOR, ROSSLYN PARK FC
SIS Pitches were very highly recommended to us by in particular our friends at Saracens. It was a major project for Rosslyn Park, the biggest capital outlay for many a moon and we wanted to work with the best. We are absolutely delighted with our new pitch, it is an amazing facility and the amount and quality of rugby that is now being played on our 1 pitch main site is fantastic! We could not be happier with our decision to install an artificial pitch facility and, as importantly, our decision to work with SIS Pitches. We would highly recommend SIS Pitches to anyone looking to make the conversion from grass to 4G. Extremely professional from start to finish and a pleasure to work with.Shaun Justice, September 2015
HON TREASURER, EASTWOODBURY LANE CENTRE
I am delighted to have the opportunity to confirm that the SIS Pitches team produced a high grade product for us, within time, to the budget agreed, and in a very professional manner in relation to us as client. As an organisation, the Eastwoodbury Lane Centre is small – very small – with few clients, a very small annual budget, and considerable reliance on a management team of volunteers. As such, the project to create a 3G pitch represented a massive increase in financial and management commitment. We quickly identified and accepted that Phil Blackwell and his SIS Pitches team were both honest and reliable. A few issues were raised by us during construction, but Phil listened carefully, adapted the programme and delivered with no delays. The pitch looks magnificent… We, and all visitors, are immensely impressed with the lines and the methods by which they were created. To date, we have no concerns regarding the quality of the equipment or materials.Trevor Clements, September 2015
SENIOR LEISURE OFFICER, COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIPS SERVICES DIRECTORATE
Crawley Borough Council appointed SIS Pitches to supply and install a 3G Pitch. The standard of service received from appointment through to completion was to a high professional standard. The contract was confirmed from the outset with all objectives achieved within the contract period. The site management and quality of installation was delivered to the highest standards with the project being delivered 10 days ahead of schedule and within the agreed budget. I would employ the services of SIS Pitches for future works and would recommend them as a competent contractor.Paul Baker, Aug 2015
PROJECT MANAGER, ST. MARY’S RC HIGH SCHOOL
We approached five companies, asking for specification advice and quotations. It soon became obvious that SIS Pitches were the most helpful in putting together the best specification which suited our budget and needs. The School had insisted on a very tight programme based upon completion during the school summer holidays and then added the complication of having to work around new building works. Your Site Supervisor, Cameron Thompson, took all in his stride and did a magnificent job. Cameron Thompson and his site team worked long days and weekends to complete the project on time. He answered every email and telephone call (and there were many) and always gave truthful answers and delivery dates. Now that the works are complete and the pitch is in full use, all participating teams and visiting teams have commented on the excellent playing surface and
Now that the works are complete and the pitch is in full use, all participating teams and visiting teams have commented on the excellent playing surface and shockpad. A great improvement on the previous pitch. Cameron Thompson has also provided invaluable after sales assistance to the site manager who runs the facility.We would certainly recommend SIS Pitches to any of your prospective clients and they would be welcome to visit our excellent facility at St. Mary’s High School.Gary McCormick, March 2015
LONG-SERVING TRUSTEE AND LEAD MEMBER FOR FUND RAISING, SANDYLANDS SPORTS CENTRE
The full-size floodlit 3G Artificial Grass Pitch at Sandylands Sports Centre, a self-help Registered Charity run by a voluntary Management Committee, is one of the most well-used facilities of its kind in the country. Indeed, the Sports Centre is also the main provider of community sport and recreational facilities in Craven. However, unfortunately, we are a victim of our own success and, of late, the surface of the 2004 facility was becoming very ‘flat’ and did not comply with FA or FIFA standards. SIS (UK) Ltd have recently undertaken the required re-surfacing and actually finished ahead of schedule and to budget.
The Management Committee are highly delighted with the work and your staff, especially Jon the Contracts Manager and Mark the Site Supervisor are a credit to SIS Pitches. Without hesitation, Sandylands sports Centre would certainly recommend SIS (UK) Ltd to any school, football club or similar community Sports Centre to ourselves. We look forward to working with you again.Roger Beck, October 2016
