bound surfacing project in Shepherds Bush
Shepherd’s Bush Green is a triangular area of open grass surrounded by trees and covers approximately eight acres, with various paths for cyclists and pedestrians running across it. There are pavements on all three sides of the perimeter, edging on to three busy shopping streets. The London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham appointed a specialist contractor to lay 7700 square metres of resin bound surfacing to the paths and to paved areas within the park. This was part of a refurbishment project which included improving the routes across and around the Green as well as the planting of further trees and the creation of two children’s play areas.
The RonaDeck Resin Bound Surfacing system was supplied as a two-component UV stable polyurethane resin. This was mixed with the Maple Harvest aggregate which the Borough had selected. The resin components were mixed with a slow speed drill and paddle before being added to a large forced action mixer containing the aggregate. Once the aggregate was fully coated with resin the operatives spread RonaDeck Resin Bound Surfacing to level and smoothed the surface with a steel float. The finished surface was ready for foot traffic in four hours. The project is believed to be the largest single resin bound surfacing project in the UK.
