The TP Group Surfacing and Coatings division were extremely proud to be asked to continue the long-awaited resurfacing within the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London. Having carried out 1300sqm of Stonebound resin bound paving at the Park in 2022, the TP Group was called back to continue with the surfacing refurbishment.
The 12,600m2 area was adjacent to, and surrounding, the ‘UCL Marshgate’ University. Along with Pool Street West, Marshgate is part of UCL East, a new world-class UCL campus located on the Olympic Park.
Opening this year, Marshgate has been designed to provide new spaces for innovative activities and game changing approaches to research. It will provide over 34,000sqm of academic space – the size of nearly five Wembley football pitches – as well as café and retail uses.
Precise surface removal was also undertaken to remove the worn Resin Bonded surface dressing to over 1,300m2 upon the bridge crossing the Waterworks River leading on to Thornton Street, which in turn leads toward the London Stadium and is alongside the iconic ArcelorMittal Orbit.
Commencing in September 2022 and completing in March 2023, Addagrip’s Stonebound Resin Bound Gravel was applied for the Marshgate surfacing in a bespoke colour blend for the Park, with the vast majority laid upon a new macadam surface installed by Centar Surfacing.
Once again, significantly sized areas of resin bound paving were applied within minimal visits to assist with timeframe and winter weather restraints. Work was completed in time for all of West Ham United’s home fixtures.
The installation was completed in March 2023.
