The brief and initial requirements
NGM were approached by David Lloyd to solve a parking issue at their Worcester location in response to an increase in their membership base. They required more parking spaces, between 90-100 spaces in total, as well as new lighting and a secure entrance. Joint working was required with the club to ensure the CDM regulations were adhered to. There were heavy planning implications and drainage restrictions that would need to be resolved to complete the task. The water authority prevented us from taking the surface water into the mains system. In response, we proposed an underground self-treating attenuation pit that meets the advised mitigation indices using a storm tech draining system. This allows for a regulated flow-rate regulator to manage the discharge of water into the culvert.
NGM proposed an initial car park design from which David Lloyd approached another company who took the car park through the planning stage. Site assessments were then carried out by NGM and the CAD drawing was optimized to see how many spaces would fit on the site whilst maintaining member’s expectation of quality and space.
There was an extensive site clearance to prepare for the drainage system. We installed armco barriers to protect onsite gas tanks whilst adhering to specified regulations. Installation of all the electrics required, the sub-base tarmac, white lining were all undertaken by NGM. We installed a bespoke gatic drainage system. In adverse weather conditions in a challenging winter, NGM delivered this project on time and on budget – as usual. The club continued to operate successfully throughout the period of the works whilst keeping safety as a priority. All waste was removed promptly and responsibly, recycling where possible.
David Lloyd were extremely happy with the completed car park and the neighbouring Worcester Warriors rugby club were so impressed, they instructed us to resurface the inside of their stadium.
