We were delighted to be appointed to carry out the installation of Addastone Resin
Bonded Surfacing using a 2-5mm Rhine Gold over 2600m² to the car park and access
road area at St Mary’s College, Durham University.
Prior to installing the Addastone, the existing car park had to be regulated with
resin and kiln dried sand and flooded with water to identify and eradicate areas
of pooling. Higher areas of the tarmac had to be scabbled to provide a level surface
to receive the new resin bonded system.
Additional challenges included the poor weather which delayed the start date, working
around the existing old sandstone sets in the car park and the need to keep noise
to a minimum whilst exams were taking place which meant the generator had be set
up 50m away from the application area. The end of term deadline was achieved, even
if it did mean working a 20 hour final day to complete the project.
The end result is an attractive, hard wearing, low maintenance surface.
