Mackley has completed a project at a leading independent school in West Sussex which involved a mix of remedial and landscaping work.
The 10-week project was carried out at the campus of Christ’s Hospital School near Horsham, which offers an independent education to children with academic potential, from all walks of life in a caring boarding and day environment.
The first element of the scheme involved works to the main underground pipework running below the school, which required the ‘breaking out’ of the floors. Once the remedial work to the pipework was completed, new reinforced concrete floors and kerbs were laid, concrete and steel works completed along with repairs to external downpipes.
The second phase of work centred around remodelling the area surrounding the school’s Art Quad.
These works entailed the removal of the existing paved area, lowering the level and then placing new fill material. The new surface was then coated with tarmac and finished with ‘Addagrip’ resin bound surfacing. New kerbing and drainage were also added.
The new surface also includes areas of Scoutmoor York stone in rustic blue/buff, laid in random sizes to form a pattern around and in a central block.
Service access points had to be maintained within the new scheme, and as the school was running as normal throughout the duration of the works, the site had to be clearly designated and separated from the public areas.
