Simonds Stadium Oval Redevelopment

Client: Simonds Stadium (now GMHBA Stadium)

Newcomb Sand and Soil’s (NSS) team members are passionate, proud and devoted fans of the mighty Geelong Cats – so it was with great enthusiasm and excitement that we accepted the challenge of supplying Turf Sands and Aggregate for the new playing surface redevelopment project in 2010.

NSS is a family owned and operated business whose workforce is based in Geelong. It was very important for us to supply and deliver turf sand materials sourced locally, as well as using Geelong quarry products—as similar to the Geelong Cats, “we are Geelong too”, and have been trading in this region for over 50 years.

At Newcomb Sand and Soil we pride ourselves on our ability to efficiently transport bulk supplies for Geelong projects such as the one mentioned above.

Our trucks removed 15,000 tonnes of topsoil and 3000 tonnes of clay when the existing oval was decommissioned. This material was then recycled for use in our Quarry remediation projects.

Geelong Cats now have a surface that is world class and we hope the boys can continue to play good footy and hopefully see some more silverware.
