Location: Trentham Academy
Application: Two Year Temporary Staff Car Park
Product: PP25 Gravel Paver
Trentham Academy is undergoing a two year programme of modernization works. The normal staff car park is planned to be used for the contactors and storage. The Academy needed a solution that would allow everyday car parking in all weather conditions, be cost effective and be viable for at least two years. Also the area needed to be within an existing area within the school grounds.
PP25 Permeable Grid with a gravel fill was chosen to meet the requirements on site. PP25 is a hard wearing grid, which is very competitively priced. It was also selected as it would be strong enough to handle typical car movements in a car park for the duration of the works being done on site. An existing artificial tennis court was chosen to be used for the car park.
Trentham Academy now have available a temporary car park available for two years, which can be used throughout the year in all but the most severe weather conditions throughout term times. The new car park has allowed the cars to be parked securely and without leading to congestion in the surrounding roads. The gravel car is completely self-draining conforming to the latest Sustainable Urban Drainage requirements (SUDS). When the works are completed the gravel can be cleaned off and the PP25 ‘reclaimed’ for use again. The PP25 allowed for a reduced quantity of gravel to be used to construct the car park improving overheads incurred during installation and removal.
