Spotlight On Completed Surfacing and Resurfacing Projects

 

Queen Mary University of London

May 2019 - London Surfacing played a major role in the project to construct a new back-up generator that would assist with any any loss of power to the universities research studies.

Our work began back in January, excavating trial holes to establish the consistency of the foundations for the concrete base to be built on

QMU - Trial 

Trenching & ducting were dug & laid for service cables to be installed.

Concrete piles were constructed to take the weight of the concrete base for the generator to sit on.

The base was constructed of a C35 concrete with reinforced bars running through.

Once the concrete had cured the base was made ready for the installation of the generator & flume.

The project was completed in May.

Halley House, Arcola Street.

In December 2015 London Surfacing completed an unusual project on the 3rd floor balcony of a school in Hackney.

London Surfacing were approached by our clients City Axis with a view to undertaking work at Halley House School in Hackney. The school hired an architect to produce a plan of the proposed rubber safety surface they wanted installed on an outside balcony.

Halley House plan 

The design mainly consisted of a blue base with a number of multi-coloured shapes built within the base colour.

The logistics of getting the material up to the 3rd floor was co-ordinated between LSC & the School. The Safetyfall was to be laid at a thickness of 40mm.

The result: A very happy client & school

The children now had a play area balcony that was safe but also bold & very colourful.

The finished product even seems to improve upon the look on the architects drawing.

Private resident driveways - Barnet & Finchley

Barnet - An extensive facelift on a private residence driveway, looking to change a worn looking shingle drive to a more modern, clean looking finish.

After excavating & removing the shingle & a sub-base of soil, we installed edgings, adjusted manhole levels & carried out brickwork repairs to the original wall.

Extra brickwork was laid to create new borders & a dwarf wall. Fully automated, retractable bollards were installed & the drive was laid with a 90mm thickness of binder course.

Then the process of laying the gold resin-bound layer began. 

The end result was a totally transformed driveway, that looked modern, clean, colourful & is very practicable to clean.

Finchley - Another stunning transformation from a tired tarmac laid drive to a clean-looking, vibrant resin-bound in slate grey.

Breaking out the old surface, adding a new layer of type 1 stone, then a compacted porous binder course & finally the resin-bound.
