Wm Loud has recently taken an old cracked asphalt area at Suzanne Corey High School Werribee, and turned it into a high class multisports surface.
Using our considerable experience and knowledge we were able to advise the school on the best way to proceed from the initial design of the project, to the construction of te project, right through to the last drop of acrylic surface.
The original asphalt surface was had cracked and had moved to such an extent that it was untidy at best and even a bit unsafe.
Whilst asphalt has its place in many circumstances this was not one of them. The West of Melbourne is well known for its unstable basalt soils and because of this we determined that a concrete base was the most suitable option to give a good long term finish.
The asphalt was profiled out, new crushed rock brought in to correct the falls and improve drainage and then a concrete slab with perimeter drainage was laid, all to match the existing footpath levels.
The only issue was, we could not access the site with trucks, our solution, build a new concrete bridge straddling the swale drain.
The school is ecstatic with the end result and the children are flocking back to play on a vastly improved surface.
