PROJECT BRIEF:

PROVIDE A FREE DRAINING PARKING SURFACE FOR KITCHEN SHOWROOM 

Our client required a public car park within the grounds of a new kitchen showroom location in Oxford. Originally specified to be a porous tarmac, however the client chose to go with the gravel stabiliser due to the great visual aesthetic of it. The grid chosen was required as the showroom expected a variety of vehicle types using the car park which meant the grid had to be strong enough to withstand heavier traffic as well as domestic cars.

PRACTICAL SOLUTION:

LAY BEDDING LAYER OVER GROUNDS AND INSTALL CORE COMMERCIAL GRID 

At the location, a SUDS compliant type 3 subbase had already been laid which meant the bedding layer could go straight on. A 2-6mm bedding layer was delivered and laid over the existing ground. After laying that, our CORE COMMERCIAL heavy-duty gravel grids were installed. Once installed, a 10mm flint was poured onto the grids and lutes were used to spread the gravel evenly over the area.

ADVANTAGES:

“THE GRAVEL STABILISER WAS THE PERFECT OPTION AND SUITS THE LOCATION SO WELL” – CLIENT

CORE COMMERCIAL is a perfect solution for a car park and commercially used area. Due to the fact that the area is a space that will be visited by a people using a variety of vehicles to get there, it was important to use a grid that was strong enough to withstand any vehicle type. CORE COMMERCIAL is also a grid that is majorly advantagous due to the speed in which it can be laid, with the sheet size enabling areas of up to 600m2 to be laid within a day.
