Project Details

Client: Duke of York Square

Sector: Recreation

Location: Duke of York Square, London, SW3 4RY

Date: 2008

The Duke of York Square offers fashion, beauty, food and culture in the heart of Chelsea. It is home to 30 stores and boutiques and six restaurants, food markets and the iconic Saatchi Gallery.

Also located in the grounds is a running track where Roger Bannister trained for the famous, first sub-four minute mile run.

It is on this running track that NatraTex were the preferred installation for the surfacing works.

In order to protect the residential and prestigious surroundings from excess noise and disruption, acoustic barriers were supplied and erected around the full perimeter of the works.

Planing machinery and surface removal tools were then used to remove the existing, failing coloured surface.

Transference away from site of all waste took place, with CCTV surveys to all drains undertaken along with protection of kerbs and grass, ACO Channel replacements and cable duct installations.

The tricky logistics and tight schedule were successfully managed and overcame, and following the base-course macadam installation, the 1,972m² 6mm HD Red NatraTex wearing course was finally applied.
