We recently completed a comprehensive car park renovation project for our esteemed client, Greene King. Our team was dedicated to ensuring minimal disruption to the pub’s delivery schedule while providing a high-quality service. The project was executed within five days, and the car park was reopened to the public just in time for the weekend rush.
- Broke out all drainage and lifted it to the new proposed surface level
- Planed off and keyed all high areas of the existing surface, preparing it for the overlay
- Applied a tack coat to enhance adhesion between the existing surface and the new overlay
- Laid a 40mm thick Duralayer 10 surface course for added durability and longevity
- Reinstated thermoplastic line markings for parking spaces and access areas
To minimise disruption to the pub’s operations, we strategically planned the renovation process, focusing on different sections of the car park each day.
Day 1: Concentrated on the higher level of the car park, breaking out and raising the drainage and levelling off high spots.
Day 2: Applied the tack coat and the new surface course on the higher level. This allowed the pub to schedule their food and alcohol deliveries for the first two days of the week, as we kept the lower car park open for access.
Day 3: Shifted our focus to the lower half of the car park and the access ramp from the front of the pub, breaking out the drainage and levelling off high spots.
Day 4: Applied the new surface layer to the lower car park and access ramp.
Day 5: Reinstated the thermoplastic line markings with a few changes to the previous layout. At the top of the car park, we resized the existing layout to add two new disabled access bays. We also crosshatched the parking area for delivery vehicles and the areas in front of the steps between the two levels of the upper and lower car park, addressing the landlord’s concerns about blocked access.
Our team completed the car park renovation within the stipulated five-day timeframe, ensuring minimal disruption to the pub’s deliveries and operations. The car park was open to the public by lunchtime on Friday, ready for the busy weekend ahead.
