Construction of a new visitor car park

This contract included the construction of a new conservation visitors car park with associated kerbing, footpath and drainage works.

This was not a typical car park that followed any of the usual standards for public car parking because it had to naturalise with the surrounding landscape and be sympathetic to the setting and location. The aim was to create a wooded parkland with parking beneath and that the landscape was allowed to develop, in some instances at the inconvenience of cars.

A new site was constructed off the neighbouring road using a tarmac construction. Site drainage was installed in the form of deep French Drains down to existing chalk levels.

A scenic limestone footpath was constructed winding through the car park to join to a gravel footway taking the general public to the hall. The car park was finished to a high standard with a tarmac entrance leading onto gravelled parking bays and access roads. All verges were then landscaped.

Attention to detail, care and thoroughness were synonymous terms with the expected finished product and we delivered all of this in abundance along with completing the project on time, within budget and to the great satisfaction of the client.
