Tesco Distribution Centre – Crawley, West Sussex
At Tidey & Webb, our passion for quality, efficiency, and customer satisfaction is evident in every project we undertake. Our recent project at the Tesco Distribution Centre in Crawley is a prime example of this commitment.
The staff car park at the centre needed an extension due to an increase in staff members. This required the transformation of an existing grassland area into an additional parking facility, along with the relocation of some light columns to optimise space.
Transforming Grassland into an Effective Parking Solution
Our initial task involved the excavation of the designated grass area. This phase was executed with meticulous attention to detail to ensure a smooth, level surface, setting a solid foundation for the work to follow.
With the area prepared, we proceeded to install kerbs, creating a well-defined and organised parking area. Concurrently, we identified and relocated several light columns. This critical step not only made the best use of the available space but also ensured appropriate lighting for safety and visibility.
Next, we installed a membrane and sub-base layer, setting the groundwork for the final surfacing. These layers provide essential stability and drainage properties, ensuring the longevity of the car park.
For the final surfacing, we laid 60mm of binder course, followed by a 40mm layer of SMA surface course. This combination delivered a durable, attractive, and low-maintenance surface, well-suited to the demands of a busy distribution centre.
Achieving Client Satisfaction
Given the time-sensitive nature of the project, efficiency and precision were of paramount importance. Despite the challenges, we were able to complete the work ahead of schedule, much to the delight of our clients. Tesco expressed high satisfaction with the outcome, commending the quality of the work, our professionalism, and our ability to meet and exceed the project’s time constraints.
This successful project at Tesco Distribution Centre stands as yet another testament to Tidey & Webb’s dedication to delivering superior surfacing solutions. Our commitment to meeting client needs, coupled with our adherence to quality and efficiency, ensured a robust and efficient car park extension that will effectively cater to the centre’s increased staffing needs.
