Eco House at Nottingham University

The award winning Eco house designed and built by students at the University was given its own unique location within the grounds, following a stint within an exhibition environment. The area chosen was however, within University parkland 133m from the nearest road with an incline of over 22m. To install the modular based house onto its new area would require 4 separate articulated lorry loads and a stable area for a mobile crane to operate. Working with the Estates department we were asked to provide a temporary product which would not only allow access for the crane and associated vehicles but would also protect the grounds beneath. We installed 600m² of Hex Road and Geo Membrane to provide the temporary roadway and working platform. Following a month’s constant rain the products proved to be the ideal protection for the grounds and were quick and easy to install and remove.
