Cemetery Development Services founder Justin Smith has been instrumental in many areas of sports field management and technology including being the founder of TurfTrax now the countries leading race technology providers.
Whilst at TurfTrax Justin developed the use of EMI technology for the surveying of sports grounds, he was instrumental in developing the “Going Stick” and the extensively used “going maps” depicting ground conditions on race courses in mapped format.
Where they could be applied Justin is an advocator of low cost drainage solutions, he set up the Football Foundation research project to investigate mole drainage as an alternative to more expensive sand slitting approaches.
From the success of this research CDS Sport now provide the Moletech Service for clay soils where sand slitting is simply unaffordable.
“Too many consultants are using overly engineered and overpriced solutions because it provides them with a comfort factor… the comfort factor being a very large percentage for project management and consultancy fees.
At CDS Sport we feel that in many cases the long-term management and maintenance costs of these over engineered projects are rarely emphasised to the customer.”
