Browse through some of our recent sustainable paving projects. From SuDS source control compliant gravel and grass car parks,fire access truck and cherry picker access routes on grass to heavy duty permeable paving blocks to support cranes constructing turbines on a wind farm.
Permeable Park & Ride Surface
|Project Application:||Permeable grass and gravel car parking bays|
|Location||Truro, Cornwall. England|
|Benefits||A Cost effective SuDS compliant solution incorporating grass and gravel porous paving|
Within the general parking bay areas, approximately 17,000m2 of Sudspave 40 was selected to provide stabilised gravel and grass surfaces underlain by the appropriate bedding layer and a ‘DOT Type 3’ free-draining sub-base layer.

Permeable Crane Hardstanding
|Project Application:||Permeable Crane Hardstandings for wind turbine installation|
|Location||Wadlow Wind Farm, Cambridgeshire|
|Product:||Truckcell recycled plastic blocks|
|- Greater volume and quality of grass establishment|
- SuDS solution returning stormwater to the natural water table
- Manufactured from 100% recycled plastic
Truckcell porous plastic paving system, supported by a free draining sub base, to surface 50% of each of the 13 crane hardstandings was chosen.

Fire Engine / Emergency Vehicle Access over Grass
|Project Application:||Fire Engine, Emergency Vehicle and Cherry Picker Access over grass|
|Location||Goodricke Campus, York University, UK|
|Product:||Advanced Turf System : ATS400/B|
|Benefits||Load Bearing for HGV’s|
Free-draining (SuDS Source Control)
Resists deformation and compaction
Discreetly reinforced, no trip hazards
Advanced Turf grass
reinforcement mesh system met the client’s sustainability
requirements, providing a natural and discreet, free-draining (SuDS
Source Control) reinforced grass solution. The necessary high load
bearing capacity for HGV loadings was easily achieved by Advanced Turf.

Permeable Crane Access Routes
|Scheme Name:||Secure Technology and Research Centre|
|Application:||Permeable surface for access routes across the site|
|Location||South East England|
|Product:||Truckcell permeable paving|
|Benefits||Cost-effective permeable surface|
Truckcell was used to create access routes across the site as a cost effective permeable surface that is robust enough to allow passage of 150t to 300t cranes through multiple construction phases.
Porous Grass Crane Hardstanding
|Project Application:||Porous crane hardstandings with a grassed finish for wind turbine installation|
|Location||Denbrook Wind Farm, Devon|
|Product:||Truckcell 80 recycled permeable plastic block paving|
|Benefits||Capable of withstanding trafficking by 750 tonne cranes|
Ease of manual handling of blocks
Once seeded the grass infill will help achieve a low visual profile
A SuDS solution returning stormwater to the natural water table
Manufactured from 100% recycled plastic
Truckcell 80 porous plastic paving system was used to construct all nine of the 40m x 20m crane hardstandings during and after the construction of the wind turbines on this wind farm project in Devon. The recycled plastic paver cells were infilled with topsoil and seeded to provide a natural reinforced grass surface, capable of providing permeability while providing the high level of load bearing required to support the cranes.
Porous Gravel Car Park & Access Road
|Project Application:||Permeable gravel car parking surfaces|
|Location||University of Derby|
|Product:||Sudspave Porous Paving Grids|
|Benefits||A SuDS compliant free-draining permeable car park that retained gravel with the porous plastic paving cells|
Sudspave gravel paving system was installed over a free draining DOT Type 3 sub-base
designed to allow surface water to infiltrate through to the underlying
soils, whilst providing a solid ground stabilised car park and access road surface.
