National Cat Centre
Improvement to parking and safety, with the work split into a number of discrete areas, each of which had to be completed before the work could begin elsewhere.
For the Lower Car Park (Picture 1) the team had to lay a ‘No Dig’ tree protection system and fill with graded stone to form a permeable sub-base before the permeable surfacing was laid. This is an ideal solution for tree sensitive areas where traditional construction methods are not permitted.
The Lower Car Park was then marked up and ready to be used (Picture 2). The permeable solution was specified as part of the planning process and removes the need for any additional drainage to be installed.
The new retaining wall (Picture 3) was installed along the access road to the National Cat Centre. This was a bespoke wall and guard rail and has now enabled the widening of the road and improved the sight lines for visitors to the centre.
