EFS Europe on hand to help students move in to Nottingham University.

EFS Europe on hand to help students move in to Nottingham University.

Posted: Fri, 22 Sep 2017 12:15

With the new university semester looming, EFS Europe was on hand at Nottingham University's Clifton Campus to help with the influx of new students.

Major building work meant that access to some of the site's halls of residence was restricted. With hundreds of cars set to descend on the site to deliver the students and their belongings, EFS Europe installed 742m2 of its Hex-Road product to create a 248m long access road.

The Hex-Road was installed by a three-man team in just five hours, who created the road down the side of one of the University's rugby fields. The route was designed to keep traffic flowing in one single direction in order to minimise any on-site traffic build up.

EFS Europe Business Development Manager Jeremy Simpson said:

"This project is a great example of how quick it is to install our products. It also demonstrates how suitable the products are for tight locations that may not be able to cope with large trucks or machinery. Had the client used large sheets of traditional trackway then the peripheral impact would have been far greater."

Wedding Bells for EFS this summer

Wedding Bells for EFS this summer

Posted: Sat, 26 Aug 2017 11:02

EFS Europe was delighted to help with a wedding with a difference and make the great outdoors accessible for even ladies in heels! The Richardson family contacted us with a little problem… How to convert an arable field into a suitable venue for a series of teepees and their 200 plus guests? After the cornfield was harvested, and with just a week before the wedding, concerns were raised over the condition of the ground, which is when EFS stepped in! An access road was required to the teepees for the wedding guests, catering outlets, generators and toilet blocks. EFS installed their Hex Road, a heavy duty roadway ideal for instant access and car parking at events.

The second part of the brief was to provide a safe, pedestrian friendly, aesthetically pleasing area in front of the teepees for a designated guest area. After being rolled by the farmer, the field was partially covered with 30m x 10m of Temp-A-Path to the front of the teepees and catering outlets. Following installation of the Temp-A-Path, the client decided they wanted the area to resemble an English country garden lawn; EFS then laid their Gadsby 33m pile height Astroturf on top of the Temp-A-Path for a stunning finish. The client then sold on the Astroturf after the event – perfect recycling!
