Installation of new irrigation system

MJ Abbott secured the contract to install a new irrigation system at Poult Wood Golf Centre following a stringent tender process managed by the client, Tonbridge and Malling Borough Council. The irrigation system design and specification was carried out by MJ Abbott.

The scope of work included:

  • 130m³ galvanised water storage tank, painted green
  • Timber pumphouse fabricated and installed by MJ Abbott
  • 28m³/hr pump station designed and manufactured by MJ Abbott
  • Installation of mainlines pipework and replacement irrigation to greens, approaches and tees over 27 holes of golf.
  • The system utilises Rain Bird irrigation equipment 
  • The system includes the Rain Bird Stratus 2 control system and radio remote control.

Martin Guyton, Leisure Contract Manager at Tonbridge and Malling Borough Council, commented: "I want to place on record my appreciation for the professional manner in which MJ Abbott Limited have completed the Poult Wood project. I cannot commend highly enough the approach of every single member of the team involved in the project. It is a rare delight to work with a contractor who is so appreciative of our own objectives, so understanding of the customer interface in a project of this nature and so responsible to every request throughout the duration of the contract. These attributes coupled with the astonishing attention to detail and high standard of workmanship resulted in the smoothest of contracts being delivered on time and on budget."

MJ Abbott continues to maintain the system.
