A Sporting First For GRB+
Newbottle Sports Pavillion
Green-tech has supplied 2,750m2 of GRB PLUS to the recently constructed Newbottle Sports Pavilion in County Durham. Landscape contractors, Sustain Landscapes Ltd installed the GRB PLUS over a three week period to the main and overspill car parks as well as surrounding access areas.
GRB PLUS is the latest development in ground reinforcement from Green-tech. The interlocking system is made from 100% recycled material diverted from landfill and is fully recyclable. Sustain Landscapes recommended GRB PLUS to the Client after consultation with Green-tech, the product was specifically chosen for its environmental attributes as well as excellent drainage properties , ease of installation and robust design.
The project, commissioned for September 2010, involved the laying of GRB PLUS on a 250mm sub-base overlaid with compacted rootzone. Each GRB PLUS component is 500mm x 500mm, making installation as efficient as possible. The squares were locked into place by Sustain Landscapes project team and installed with ease, GRB PLUS was cut to size in areas that presented awkward shapes or angles. On completion the cells were infilled with a 70/30 rootzone and overseeded.
The project was completed in early October 2010 and already the GRB PLUS has integrated itself into the landscape. It is performing well with the on-set of the winter months.
