HIGHFIELD PARK TRUST

Following some recent funding to the trust that was established in 1996, the client contacted NMC to assist in the redevelopment of their deteriorating footpaths. This enquiry came following a recommendation to the trust by a previous park and recreational project completed by an NMC Project Manager. With a site visit by NMC we were able to advise on some cost saving measures that enabled the client to extend the area of resurfacing in their initial plans.

Objective

Following some recent funding to the trust that was established in 1996, the client contacted NMC to assist in the redevelopment of their deteriorating footpaths. This enquiry came following a recommendation to the trust by a previous park and recreational project completed by an NMC Project Manager. With a site visit by NMC we were able to advise on some cost saving measures that enabled the client to extend the area of resurfacing in their initial plans.

Our client approached NMC regarding the deterioration of the parks paths. Securing some funding from S106 agreements via St Albans District Council and Colney Heath Parish Council, the trust decided to contribute some of its capital reserves in order to complete a section of the paths that needed resurfacing. NMC worked collaboratively with the trust to produce a conditional site report to evaluate the sites current condition and through valued engineering and previous over specification were able to extend the area of resurfacing and reduce the carbon footprint.

Delivery

The footpath was closed to pedestrians to allow the works to be completed, prior notice of the footpath closure was posted on the parks noticeboard and website. NMC used public marshals to also secure the area of works, parks are renowned for visitors not always sticking to the pathways, additional measures were put in place to ensure safety. Using mini-planers and pavers the job was completed over two days laying a bond coat and AC10 surface course. The works were safely completed and resulted in an extremely pleased client.
“The work has been carried out to a high standard with minimal disturbance” – Richard Bull – Park Manager
