The Hills Golf Club

Project requirement

The self-sealing properties of the Volclay Swelltite Sodium Bentonite Membrane made an ideal choice for this & other high profile earth covered structures.  With the minimum confinement criteria of 300mm earth cover (over the Swelltite) achieved; this application was very straight forward and has gone on to showcase in several New Zealand Golf Open Events conditions. Extensive QA checks were required over a two year period.
