Project Overview

Objective

Petrochem specialists NMC were asked to carry out concrete repairs and resurfacing works on a Shell Petroleum Forecourt and McDonalds Restaurant service area in Tankersley, Barnsley. Following a site visit by NMC to evaluate the repairs the decision was made by our client to replace the 1,550m² area.

Our client contacted NMC due to the surface failings on this petrol station. The site required an 400m² area of concrete excavating and replacing and the surrounding entrance and exit ways planing and relaying. Following a site visit by NMC experts we tailored a specific solution using our expertise and an innovative material specification to meet our clients needs.

Delivery

With an urgency to complete the works as quickly as possible, a phasing plan was implemented that included full site closure to ensure surfacing works could be completed to large areas minimising major disruption. Due to the location of the petrol station and nearby businesses, NMC worked closely with Highways England, Barnsley Local Authority Highways and the Local Authority Environmental Health Officer as well as the onsite Premier Inn Hotel ensuring the works passed smoothly and without complaint. Our client did not hold any plans for the forecourt which made excavation impossible to deep depths due to unknown cables, to counter this problem NMC utilised an innovative material from our supplier Hansons, a product called Tufflex HD suited to overlaying concrete. The material delivers a multi-layer crack resisting binder/surface course and enhances the fatigue due to its absorption levels. Further risks identified include height, this was apparent with low electric cables as well as the limitations of the petrol station roof, to counter this problem NMC utilised a non-tipping, walking floor asphalt lorry, the machine pushes material from its holding compartment rather than tipping and pouring, preventing any height problems. The site was completed with fresh thermoplastic white lining before reopening as scheduled.
