We had previously completed some fencing for Highlees school in Peterborough which they were extremely happy with, so they contacted us regarding an outside eating area that they wanted to improve the look of, make safer and reduce the maintenance of.
Work we carried out
The previous decking area was demolished and environmentally disposed of ready for us to prepare the ground for a new permeable, resin bound eating area.
The area was excavated to a larger area and 28 tonne of MOT Type-1 installed as a sub base.
New edging blocks were installed around the area and a oval created some distance away from the tree to help minimise root issues.
New metal railings were fabricated and the posts installed prior to compacting the Bitumen base course.
The Bitumen base was installed and compacted and Red aggregate bound in UVR Resin hand troweled to the entire area.
Once this had cured the metal railings were installed and the project was complete.
The end result was exactly what was envisioned by the school and they are extremely happy with the new area which will require far less maintenance, wont puddle or be affected by weeds.
