Maidstone Park Artificial Turf Development and Master Planning – Upper Hutt City Council (2011 and 2017 update)

Maidstone Park is Upper Hutt’s most central park (only a short walk to the CBD), and the sports hub of the city. SGL partnered with BOON Team Architects to peer review previous community facility needs assessment reporting for development of a Maidstone Park master plan, operational model and funding strategy. SGL additionally contributed to the capital funding strategy to bring the project to fruition. The scope of the masterplan included a site analysis, site plan and 3D model views showing the different zones, roading infrastructure along with new and existing structures. In 2011 the principal project emphasis was the development of artificial surfaces for hockey and football, which were subsequently completed within the next two years. In 2017 SGL and BOON were the re-engaged to prepare an updated masterplan for the site.
