Total Protection (GB) Ltd – Maurer Court

After first being contacted and visiting this landscaped podium area within the Greenwich Millennium Village back in July/August 2014, Total Protection finally undertook the required resurfacing works this summer.

Our client undertook several years of investigation work to try and determine the reasoning behind the failure of the original, previously installed Resin Bound Gravel system, followed by necessary fundraising and scheduling before being able to proceed.

Access issues alongside weight restricted adjacent surfaces were overcome by the use of a specific crane as well as a scaffold rubbish chute within an independent scaffold tower, complete with access gantry from the podium, of which all enabled materials and plant to be transferred and all waste to be suitably disposed.

Access for the residents was of paramount importance, and therefore daily information was communicated along with the original schedule and information provided prior to the works taking place.

Removal and disposal of the existing Bound Gravel took place, followed by regulating and re-grading of the existing loose aggregate sub-base in order to strengthen and provide a suitable surface upon which to install the new surface dressing.

Following lengthy discussions regarding the solution to all of the issues previously experienced, Addagrip’s Terrabase Rustic product was selected.

This system enabled the existing sub-base to be utilised and eliminated the necessity to install a new macadam substrate.

‘Oak’ was the chosen colour blend that has really enhanced the podium area and complemented the adjacent soft landscaping.

It has also once again helped to provide a bright and relaxing space for the residents to view and experience.

The 778m² Terrabase installation was completed over a period of x8 days, utilising an average sized team of x4 operatives of who’s experience helped to manage the high temperatures as well as the logistics and management of resident access.

All parties concerned were extremely pleased with the result.
