Duke of York Square
The Duke of York Square offers fashion, beauty, food and culture in the heart of Chelsea. It is home to 30 stores and boutiques and six restaurants, food markets and the iconic Saatchi Gallery.
Also located in the grounds is a running track where Roger Bannister trained for the famous, first sub-four minute mile run. NatraTex was the preferred option for the resurfacing of the track.
In order to protect the residential and prestigious surroundings from any excess noise and disruption during the installation, acoustic barriers were supplied and erected around the full perimeter of the works.
Planing machinery and surface removal tools were then used to remove the existing, failing coloured surface.
All waste was removed from the site, with CCTV surveys of all drains undertaken along with protection of kerbs and grass, ACO Channel replacements and cable duct installations were undertaken.
The tricky logistics and tight schedule were successfully managed, and following the base-course macadam installation, the 1,972m² 6mm HD Red NatraTex wearing course was finally applied.
