It’s our final quarterly round up of 2017, and though it is the last it is by no means the least! In the last few months we have worked with some well-known names, and on some very unusual projects. Whilst much of the country has suffered from bad weather, our teams have wrapped up warm and preserved to complete their projects on time.

In December, we installed red wet pour safety surfacing at two McDonald’s restaurants in Thirsk and Norwich.

In the same month, one of our installation teams got set a rather unusual mission. Working on behalf of Leeds Council, they traveled to Lotherton Wildlife World to help add a bit of extra comfort for the resident flamingos.

Staff members at Lortherton Wildlife World were worried the current floor was too hard for the birds to stand on all day long; so our wet pour was to be installed as it was impact absorbent and would be softer for the underfoot for the birds.

As part of the enclosure floor would be partially sub-merged our teams had to take extra care to ensure it would be safe for the animals and stand the test of time.

Whilst the flamingos were made comfortable, another of our team headed down to Cambridge. Our team removed and disposed of an existing surface, before installing new wet pour for the Holiday Inn.

By varying the depths of the surfacing, guests to the hotel can play safely on the play equipment with minimal risk of injury.

In November, our sports division, RTC Sport, worked with Bishop’s Stortford Golf Club to install new pathways. The club took advantage of our free site visits and we arranged for one of our technical representatives to visit the club before any work was started. Our team then installed over 1200m² of black rubber crumb onto MOT Type 1, smoothing out two small dips making it easier for members to navigate the course.

We also carried out a small project installing wet pour for the crèche at Gleneagles Hotel in Auchterarder. We’ve carried out work in the past for Glenagles, including work at the entrance to the Dormy clubhouse in 2011 and custom blend pathways in 2008.

They say never work with animals, but they have been a consistent theme this month. On our last working week of the year, we headed over to Chester Zoo to install some new resin bound rubber mulch safety surfacing. Resin bound mulch was a great surface for this project as it has a natural look and is kind to the environment – helping to reduce landfill and C02 emissions.

We’ve had a busy few months, and are now looking forward to all of the exciting projects we have lined up in 2018. If you are working on a project and would like a quick quote, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
