Synthetic Grass & Rubber Surfaces Australia, a Surface Designs client, took gold and silver positions at the recent Sports and Play Industry Association’s awards night.
Organised by the Sports and Play Industry Association (SAPIA) to recognise and honour sport and play construction excellence among members, the 2016 SAPIA Industry Awards program was held as part of the National Conference at Sydney’s Q Station recently.
A key objective of the awards program is to support the association’s goal of promoting excellence and encouraging innovation in the design, construction, maintenance, surfacing and servicing of tennis courts, sports fields, playgrounds and recreation facilities.
Synthetic Grass & Rubber Surfaces Australia took home the top awards for their Rosehill TPV rubber surfacing installations at the new Wulaba Park in inner Sydney (Gold) and the Tamworth Regional Playground in Tamworth (Silver).
