Nelson Primary School

Project- Nelson Primary School, Birmingham
Start Date- 23rd July 2018
Completion Date- 31st August 2017
Scope of Works- Car Park Extension

In the 2018 school summer holidays we completed a project creating a new car park at Nelson Primary School in Birmingham as there was a shortage of car parking spaces for the staff and this was causing lots of problems.

We started the job by firstly setting up the site and then by removing both trees and bushes offsite which were in between the existing car park and the new car park area. We then excavated to reduce the levels and in places built the levels up using MOT Type 1 roadstone, we then installed the specialist ultiflow sub-base from Tarmac®. We then installed road kerbs to all the perimeter of the car park and soil, shrubs and plants to the outside of the area. For the tarmac construction we laid 20mm porous ultidrive from Tarmac® and 10mm porous ultidrive from Tarmac® using a tarmac paver machine, this particular material along with the ultiflow sub-base allows water to go through it which in turn ensures the drainage is excellent as well as being more eco-friendly.
