Case Study / Project

Project: Grass car park for extra staff parking

Client:    MMUK

Location:    Frans House, Chatteris, Cambridgeshire

Product:    GR14 Grass Reinforcement Mesh and support grid

Issue

MMUK is a thriving business that has gone from strength to strength. In doing so MMUK have needed to increase the employee numbers to keep up with their customer demand. This has led to almost unbearable pressures on car parking spaces. Cars were being parked in unsuitable places sometimes even blocking access routes. Their factory was built next to green belt land and so planning permission for new hard standing almost impossible to get and well as being harshly expensive, issues with water runoff would have to be dealt with. Next to the factory is a grass field that was looked at to provide overflow parking.

Solution

The grassed field next to the factory is a flat well drained area with a strong established grass growth. The car parking needed to be used throughout the year on most days maintaining a grass cover that was in keeping and not out of place with the surrounding countryside. So what was proposed to be the solution was GR14 Grass Reinforcement Mesh and a specially selected support mesh underneath. Both products were laid at the same time directly onto the existing grass and pinned onto the ground. The entire installation was done over several days.

Benefits

After allowing the grass to entangle with the mesh filaments, MMUK were able to offer overflow grass car parking for their staff, on a daily basis, at a cost that was affordable and without planning permission delays. The combination of the GR14 Grass Reinforcement Mesh and the special support mesh together gave an enhanced and stronger footprint that enabled the area to withstand the required workloads. Parking has become smoother and incident free without congestion and blocking of delivery access routes.
