Paynter Dixon has started work on two state-of-the-art synthetic soccer fields at The Hills Grammar School in Sydney’s north-west.
The synthetic fields will be built on underutilised land near the entrance to the school.
Principal Michael Smith was on hand to turn the first sod on the project.
“This is an exciting project for Hills Grammar which will see two synthetic FIFA sized playing fields constructed for use by both the School, and the broader communities,” Mr Smith said.
“These fields build upon our already impressive array of purpose built and fit for purpose facilities and will enhance and extend the learning opportunities available to current and future Hills Grammarians.
“The Sport and PDHPE programs will, of course, be the main beneficiaries of the playing fields, but we look forward to engaging with community groups within the Hills District in support of their activities as we add a much-needed resource to the area.”
Paynter Dixon has worked with Hills Grammar for over 30 years, assisting the school to develop into one of Sydney’s leading independent learning institutions.
“They have designed and built almost every building on our campus and have done so in ways that are sympathetic and respectful of the natural beauty of our environment and ensuring no built facility dominates or overwhelms the campus,” Mr Smith continued.
Previous work includes master plan development, building refurbishments and the design and construction of an early childhood education centre.
Paynter Dixon’s Executive General Manager Matthew Greene said it was an exciting day to work on another important project with the school.
Mr Greene said Paynter Dixon has designed and constructed nearly every building on the site.
Principal Michael Smith is looking forward to the ongoing relationship between Paynter Dixon and The Hills Grammar.
“We are once again delighted to be working with Paynter Dixon Constructions whose involvement with the School started in the early years of operation.”
