Hayden Turfcare Limited offers an independent professional consultancy service for sports pitches, stadia and equestrian facilities.
Changing the Game
Hayden Turfcare is focused exclusively on the design, installation and management of high quality natural and synthetic sports turf surfaces. Our established client base encompasses sporting organisations at every level, from the progressive amateur club or community centre right through to globally recognised, high profile international organisations such as UEFA.
One thing that unites Hayden Turfcare with all of our clients is the desire to positively impact the way that sport is played, changing the game through excellent project delivery and optimised sports turf management.
For the ambitious amateur sports club or community organisation
Hayden Turfcare offers bespoke, personalised and affordable project management to deliver exceptional results. As experts in sportsturf, we can guide you through the whole process from initial feasibility through to delivery, handover and maintenance. In most projects the savings that we generate through professional tendering and project management more than offset the cost of consultancy before the project breaks ground.
For stadia and international level sporting events
Hayden Turfcare can provide globally recognised experts in sportsturf engineering, pitch design, project management and agronomy. We are proven in the development of state of the art stadium pitches including hybrid reinforcement technology, pitch cooling and heating systems, irrigation systems and shade management systems. Our consultants have extensive experience in the delivery of major sporting events such as the FIFA World Cup™, the UEFA Euro Championship™ and the Olympics.
A particular specialism of Hayden Turfcare is emergency intervention and recovery of playing surfaces, including short-notice re-turfing in advance of high profile events. Our consultants have been instrumental in some of the most high-profile turnaround projects in the industry including UEFA EURO 2016™.
What sets us apart?
Three factors set Hayden Turfcare apart from other pitch consultancy and project management companies.
Our independence from any supplier or contractor
As a family run business, at Hayden Turfcare we are proud of our independence from any investors, suppliers or contractors. We do not carry out commercially sponsored research or product endorsement. Avoiding these potential conflicts of interest enables us to truly act in the interests of our clients. This is unique in the current market.
Our hands-on approach and customer focus
At Hayden Turfcare we recognise that regardless of project size, profile or budget, effective delivery and support is of equal importance to all of our clients. Excellent customer service is at the heart of our business and for that reason the vast majority of our new clients contact us through referrals.
Experts from Hayden Turfcare will be available throughout your project for support and advice in addition to planned site visits. We can take on the responsibility for full service project management so you don’t have to. Day or night, winter or summer, a core value of the company is our personal touch and response to queries and calls.
Our goal is to leave each of our clients at the end of any project with long-term sustainable solutions. As an added value service we will help you build the infrastructure and expertise to maintain surfaces to a high standard, making your investment work for you.
Maintaining personal oversight of every project delivered by Hayden Turfcare, our lead consultant Richard Hayden B.Agr.Sc., C.Sc., M.Eng. is one of the most experienced professional sportsturf consultants in the industry.
Richard draws on a powerful combination of formal qualifications in agronomy and engineering and over 20 years of practical experience. Richard’s portfolio of work spans over 42 countries and in 2016 Richard celebrated the delivery of his 250th project.
Richard is well recognised within the industry having acted as lead consultant for many international sporting events and championships including the FIFA World Cup™ and the UEFA EURO Championships™. Richard’s most notable publications include the 2016 FAI Pitch Management Manual, the 2016 Natural Turf Standard for Poland, the FIFA Global Stadium Handbook Version 5 (pitch section) and the 2008 FAI Natural Turf Guideline for natural turf pitch development. He has also published many articles in both the trade press and academic journals.
Richard remains passionate about hands-on involvement in every project. He thoroughly enjoys working with individuals committed to improving their turf and elevating sport at whatever level it is played. On any project Richard is equally likely to be found out on the pitch reviewing progress and refining machinery operation as in the boardroom establishing contracts and negotiating with suppliers.
