The client required a full internal and external relining and demarcation programme to be carried out at their distribution centre. NMC Surfacing were invited to survey the site and submit a tender for the works
Project Key Stats
Total Site Area
This project required the thermoplastic lining to be replaced with an epoxy spray which adheres to concrete more successfully than thermoplastic. The current lining had worn badly in some areas resulting in concerns around health and safety regulations.
The project was demanding in terms of accessibility, the distribution centre runs a 24.7 operation providing no opportunity to undertake the work while the site was empty. Rigorous planning, traffic management and good communication with the centre manager were crucial to completing the works.
The external car park and loading areas were relined including all bays, hatching areas, speed signs and directional marking. The existing lining had begun to wear away as thermoplastic had been used on concrete which reduced its adhesive properties. NMC Surfacing applied a two-coat epoxy product which includes a light reflecting property, enhancing the visibility of the marking at night.
The internal works of the project were particularly difficult to manage as the shift patterns of the distribution centre required NMC Surfacing to work in a live environment with forklift trucks and operatives continually present.
The lining was completed and handed back to the client who was extremely pleased with the standard of workmanship and professionalism shown by NMC Surfacing in what had been a very challenging environment.
