In cooperation with

Lviv Sportcomplex

The investor has planned the construction of 11 full-size pitches with artificial-, natural- and hybrid grass surfaces in a difficult, mountainous area. The total area of the complex is over 40 hectares.

Take a closer look at project Lviv Sportcomplex:

It is planned to build several smaller training pitches, high-quality hotel- and training facilities, car parks, etc. This pitch is the main training ground of the Ruch Lwów club.

We place a high priority on creating solutions that meet the best sustainability standards.


Mountanious challenge

The first pitch with an artificial grass surface - very difficult water- and ground conditions due to all sides of the pitch being concreted and filled with soil of very poor quality, no drainage. The pitch was placed on the cut side of the hill. 

We proposed the location of PermaFlex700 and the drainage of excess rainwater to a nearby natural reservoir. We drained the ground under the Permavoi85S fire pits by drilling holes in the concrete walls around the pitch.


Sports pitch System Synthetic Turf

The Permavoid system is used as a multifunctional subbase for synthetic turf pitches, being both high-strength and lightweight. Due to the open surface of the Permavoid units the pitch drains effectively and reliably over the entire surface, preventing standing water after peak rain events. The shallow construction depth speeds up the installation process, reduces material movements to and from site and the cellular reusable set up allows the creation of temporary and permanent sports pitches.

With an approved conventional shockpad the system is used as a system for rainwater capture, detention and/or infiltration. The Nature-based functionality of rainwater retention and capillary evaporation for adiabatic cooling of the pitch can be created using the BlueLay capillary shockpad in combination with an open-grid backing synthetic turf and natural sand infill.

Permavoid and synthetic turf create a water sensitive and climate resilient solution; playable 24/7, cool and safe for athletes, with limited maintenance and water consumption, based on on-site circular water management.
