Context

Airport City is a globally connected business destination located at Manchester Airport. DHL has a 37,308ft2 facility housing a freight terminal designed to enhance DHL’s competitive logistical performance through its strategic location, state-of-the-art features and best-in-class handling processes.

Challenge

Hard landscaping products capable of meeting DHL’s identified requirements were required in different areas of this vast development. As well as enhancing the office entrance and car park, with the new hub providing international services as well as the core DHL Service Point offerings of drop off and collection of goods for delivery overseas, suitable products were required to cope with the high volume of delivery vehicles and HGVs entering and exiting the site.

Solution

Keyblok Brindle was selected to create an attractive and durable approach to the offices. To promote visual harmony on the site, this block paving was also carried through to the cycle shelters and used for pathways on the distribution site.

Blister flag tactile paving in buff was installed around the dropped kerbs across the site for pedestrian safety.

Effective drainage was essential to meet the required loadings. Beany Block, the original combined kerb and drainage system which has been on the market for over 30 years, was installed in both in the car park and around the perimeter of the distribution yard.

In addition, Titan specialist vehicle high-containment kerb was installed at the entrance and exit to the distribution yard and around the gatehouse and services, preventing vehicular overrun.

Benefit

Attractive and practical Brindle Keyblok paving around the offices has created a safe and effective approach, making a feature of planted areas and outside seating.

In the distribution yard, use of high-containment Titan kerb is contributing to added safety for vehicles and pedestrians.
