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.

As both of the areas were to be installed by local staff it was important to provide a simple and easy to use system. For the backstage areas we supplied 100m² of Temp-A-Path® for walkways and for the main area we supplied 600m² of Hex Road with Geo membrane to protect the ground. Both items were installed and removed by The Leeds Council Events Team.

Considered to the biggest and best attended agricultural show in show in Europe, the Royal Welsh surpassed all expectations with a record crowd of over 241,000 visitors at Builth Wells. Given the constant heavy rain for the previous 5 weeks, the organisers decided to make use of both our Hex Road and Temp-A-Path® products. Previously only the traditionally used aluminium roadways had been approved for the site. We supplied 500m² of Hex Road as a 3m roadway for vehicular access and also 400m² of Temp-A-Path® for pedestrian use. Both products easily stood up to the task in hand, with the organisers declaring them both as ideal solutions. They were also delighted with the fact that the products we supplied were easy to install and remove by their own on site staff.
