Warwickshire – Rupert Brook House
CCE Surfacing were very pleased to be asked to work again for the famous Rugby School.
Rupert Brook’s house belongs to the school and we were instructed to complete the ground works and resurface the driveways with our proven ‘resin bonded’ surface. A practical, hard wearing surface available in a choice of colours.
We have worked for Rugby School before and it is always pleasing to return to a satisfied customer.
Substantial preparatory ground-works to the driveway were necessary before the surface could be resin bonded. We had to excavate the top surface of loose gravel, which had been crushed and compacted by years of use. We laid new very hard-wearing grey granite sets to the edges of the driveway and around the planters. An ugly slab of concrete forming an opening to the old coal cellar had to be broken out. As a safety measure we reinforced the cellar during the operation and it eventually came away without causing any damage.
We laid a new Asphalt surface to the freshly prepared area, which in turn was sealed with a CCE sealant, preventing the resin from leaching into the Asphalt.
The next day the crew returned to install the resin bonded surface. Rugby School chose ‘Brittany Bronze’, to complement its building. The resin bonded surface was installed by the afternoon and after a couple of hours the resin had “cured off.” This enabled us to sweep the new resin surface the same day.
Job well done, the driveway looked lovely and would provide an easily maintained surface that would look great for years. Mike Smith of Rugby School came to see the completed work and was ‘delighted’.
