JHP Electrical designs and installs Galaxy FD lighting system at Topgolf Watford
Adam Dukes, Topgolf Watford

JHP Electrical has completed an installation at the Topgolf centre in Watford.

The company, which specialises in sports and recreational lighting solutions, removed all existing range lights and provided a new lighting design scheme.

The busy Topgolf Watford facility – which features 49 hitting bays over two floors – was looking to improve its existing system. JHP replaced the old system with Galaxy FD600 Sports Floodlights.

Adam Dukes, general manager of Topgolf Watford, said: "From start to finish, the whole team was absolutely fantastic. The survey was done very quickly. Everything moved very fluidly from start to finish.

"The installation itself was efficient, professional and hassle-free and ever since the follow-up service we've received has been second to none.

"I would describe our old range lights as just about adequate. I guess I didn't really realise how much better they could be until JHP installed the new system. The old ones were a bit dull and you couldn't see out to the far targets.

"Ever since the installation, the lighting out at the range is so much better. Previously we could see out to around the 160-yeard mark – now we can clearly see out to our black marker, which is just over 240 yards away.

"Our guests are already saying how much better the new lighting is and how much easier it is to see and track their shots."

Gerflor installs Taraflex flooring at Sheffield school
The school opted for a Taraflex Comfort surface in the sports hall

Gerflor has supplied the newly-built Astrea Academy in Sheffield – set to become one of the city’s biggest schools – with two large sports floor solutions.

The project saw Gerflor supply 550sq m of its Taraflex Comfort vinyl sports flooring for the academy’s sports hall, with a further 250sq m in Oak chosen for the gym area.

Taraflex Comfort was chosen as it offers the highest levels of comfort and shock absorption to prevent long-term injuries and immediate injuries on impact.

Astrea Academy opened its doors to a handful of students in September 2018. However, in seven years’ time, it is set to become one of the city’s biggest schools taking children from nursery age up to sixth form.

With the expected levels of growth came the need for vision and future-proofing for the school’s infrastructure.

This included flooring for the all-important indoor sports facilities that the academy provides for both pupils and staff.

Luke Cropper, campus manager at Astrea Academy said, "We are extremely pleased with the Gerflor sports flooring."

Wolverhampton Wanderers FC has completed a major investment project at its two main venues – Molineux Stadium and the Sir Jack Hayward academy training centre. The upgrades were needed following the club's promotion to the English Premier League in 2018.

At the centre of the works has been the development of the training centre. As part of the project, Wolves took delivery of pioneering DevoShift training goals, supplied by Mark Harrod.

Two years in development, the DevoShift is intended to roll out on to synthetic and high-quality pitches, allowing site personnel to steer a full-sized goal through access gates with minimal fuss and resources.

"Mark Harrod had developed the concept of a goal, designed to use on synthetic pitches, and wanted to trial it," said Wolves head groundsman Wayne Lumbard. "We were delighted to put the product through its paces, as I believe that latest generation synthetic pitches deserve latest technology goals."

Lumbard adds that the trial was successful. "For groundsmen, this goal is a no-brainer," he said.

"Two people can quickly and easily swivel and push the DevoShift goals in any direction, not just forwards and backwards, as with current equipment."

The new goals are designed to be fully compliant with the new European Standard BSEN16579.
