Ballina Shire Council engaged Synergy to upgrade the soccer fields and cricket pitch for the Lennox Head community. Improvements were necessary to elevate playing conditions and cater to the increasing number of participants on the sports field.

The project involved the installation of irrigation infrastructure, sub-surface drainage, field illumination, potable/reuse water systems, stormwater management, a sealed car park with 200 spaces and widening of the roads.

Over 13,000m3 of unsuitable material was excavated and removed from the site. A basalt rock retaining wall, spanning 130m2, was constructed, and field irrigation was implemented with electronically controlled sprinkler heads. Additionally, subsoil drainage was installed to enhance field functionality and maintain turf integrity, particularly in a high rainfall zone. The fields were covered with a highly specified topsoil that was placed using GPS-controlled equipment to ensure accurate field and drainage levels prior to the installation of A Grade turf.
