Objective

As a framework supplier to supermarket giant Tesco, NMC was tasked with the resurfacing project at Castle Douglas in Dumfries. The project required 4,022m² of car park resurfacing and resetting an additional 200m² of block paving.

With the popularity of this Tesco supermarket, NMC was tasked to devise a phasing plan that minimised the disruption to the store during these maintenance works, while ensuring the works, which included store front and disabled bays, were completed to schedule. During our site visit we identified an area known for flooding, a problem for the store and something that required resolving. The store manager had also reported anti-social behaviour on site with vehicles, an element they required addressing asap.

Delivery

To minimise disruption to the store NMC devised a six phase plan to ensure the maintenance works were completed with minimal disruption to operations and to visitors. Prior to the works, during our site survey, we found a specific area of the site that was renowned for flooding, to help minimise the standing water to this area that covers over 125m², NMC laid Ultidrive Porous Asphalt. This material benefits from excellent drainage characteristics eliminating the problem of surface water whilst maintaining long term durability of the surface. Part of the resurfacing also included the installation of five speed bumps, protecting pedestrians, slowing cars using the car park and to prevent the element of anti-social behaviour that had recently troubled the store. The site was completed with fresh thermoplastic white lining to match the existing layout. The project was completed to schedule and resulted in a very happy client.
