SPORTS SURFACE EXPERTS

Since the beginning, Tuff Group has developed a world-class surface system available across Australia and the Asia-Pacific region.

We are the only business capable of providing a true end-to-end service from discovery and consulting through to the delivery and maintenance of all forms of sports surfaces.

OUR CAPABILITIES:


Consulting

One of the most critical elements of surface planning and creation is ensuring factors such as usage, long-term development, and use of resources are considered at the start of a project. Having delivered hundreds of commercial and light commercial projects across the country, we are ideally placed to provide this expertise at the start of a project.

By taking additional time and considering all factors effecting the outcome of a successful project, clients can save time and money while gaining peace of mind.The team working with you during this process are not “desk jockey” consultants who only know how Tuff Turf works in theory, our team are experienced experts who provide insights based on recent work experience.
Clients find this is one of our most valuable offerings; it focuses on new areas of attention and saves time, money, and effort.


Engineering
& Design

While Tuff Group often consults with external, specialised engineers on projects, we also have an in-house engineering capability. We cross-check to ensure that our surfaces will stand up to sustained long-term usage using a cost-efficient amount of materials and long-term maintenance. Our lead engineer has worked on some of the world’s largest projects within the Asia- Pacific region and the Middle East.

Tuff Group has an in-house design team to help our various clients plan the best facilities and surfaces for their project. Specialising in the creation of surfaces (as opposed to buildings and other associated elements) our design team ensures that the various unique but important considerations of sub-base surface design are considered. The expertise delivered during this process cannot be overstated. Poor project design invariably leads to increased costs and delay at the time of project delivery.


Construction
& Installation

Tuff Group have developed a sub-base solution built under a synthetic surface which is critical to its performance. Time and again, we are asked to maintain or reconstruct sub-bases which do not perform well. This is due to issues that could have be avoided at the construction stage. The development of a high-performing synthetic surface relies heavily upon the construction of the perfect sub-base allowing for correct drainage, compression, and levels. This is a specialised task and the Tuff Group team have proven many times that they can stand behind the construction phase of projects.

The installation stage of a project consumes only 20 -25% of the cost and time of a typical project. However, it is the most visible and highly scrutinised part of any job. Tuff Group is proud to use and stands behind the world-class products supplied by CC Grass, the world’s largest provider of synthetic turf surfaces. Correct and diligent installation ensures that surfaces not only look good but perform as expected under time and duress.
