Spotlight On Completed Surfacing and Resurfacing Projects

 

Chacombe Park care Home, Banbury.

May 2021 - The scope of the project was to re-surface & repair footpaths & the main driveway into the care home itself.

Beginning with the footpaths, new concrete edgings were installed, the existing surfaces were regulated/levelled. A new 6mm surface course was laid & compacted.

Chacombe - Footway 2         Residents & visitors can now walk the grounds of the home on safe footing.

The largest section of the project involved resurfacing from the access road, through the entrance & along the driveway.

As the only roadway into the home, Discussions with the client determined that the work would be completed in a single day to reduce delivery/visitor concerns.

The roadway was laid using a Bitelli paving machine & to correct falls & crossfalls.

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.

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.
