Sanscorp was approached by the Vancouver Whitecaps to provide the sand and soil products for their new training fields. We were selected because our river sand is one of the best anywhere in the world for applications where grain consistency and excellent drainage properties are required and we have the ability to custom mix our top soils to suit the application.
The Whitecaps needed a product that would stand up to the weather conditions the West Coast can throw at us; a surface that not only drained well but gave consistent stable footing winter, spring, summer and fall. Because of the size of the club and the number of developmental teams utilizing the field it had to be durable enough for multiple practice sessions per day.
We worked with the contractor to provide them with a base and topsoil combination that compacted well yet would not pool or become soft when the rains came. It had to provide the grass a stable platform for deep roots and consistent growth, maintain a level of moisture within the soil even in hot dry weather and be low cost to maintain. The result is a playing field that is the envy of the MLS.
We have the products, knowledge and expertise to make this and any other project a success for our customers.
