Case Study: Car Park Design & Construction Eton College

Paving Grid Car Park

Tarmacadam Roadway

Tarmacadam & Resin-Bound Gravel pathways

Car Park Lighting and Furniture

Eton College commands a unique position within the Country’s sporting heritage and therefore the appointment to build a major new sports development and civil engineering works at Willowbrook was a prestigious commission for S&C Slatter.

S&C Slatter’s in-house Surfacing & Civils team created a 52-space barrier entry paving grid car park with tarmacadam access road, which required a section 278 connection to the adjacent highway. The car park design and construction incorporates links to the sports pitches and new pavilion via tarmacadam and resin-bound gravel pathways featuring bollard lighting.

The project was managed and completed by the company’s in-house design, construction and project management teams led by Pre-Construction Manager Ben O’Connor and Contracts Manager David Smith.

Central to the new sporting facilities are two sand-dressed artificial turf hockey pitches complete with a hockey training pitch. All are surfaced with FieldTurf Gold Elite artificial turf and designed to play to the FIH National Performance Standard. Find out more here.
