We welcome potential clients to our Research and Demonstration Centre at St Ives, Bingley, near Leeds, in England. Here, where we have four full size modules in place, visitors can see, feel and touch the grass and soil. They can examine the turf edges of each module and can see how perfectly the retain their shape and come together when moved to form a perfect join. Visitors can try their hardest to spot the joins between these modules with their own eyes – but they will not succeed!
Visitors can also see the research being conducted to develop the climate control specifications of the StadiaPitch Pitch Storage Building. For example, you can see grass being grown in climate chambers where the only light being used is from LEDs. You will see that, despite the complete absence of natural light for many weeks, the grass looks very green, strong and healthy.
All your critical grass related questions will then be answered by STRI`s grass consultants and grass researchers to guide you through the StadiaPitch test site at St. Ives.
