Reducing Environmental Impact of Implementing a Temporary Car Park

A large temporary car park has been formed on the footprint of what will be a sports pitch area. It is designed to be self draining as it is constructed using a gravel filled grid system, set at a level to allow it to be top soiled over as part of the permanent works.

This removes the need for double handling and export off site of materials which would only have been used for temporary work. This surface draining gravel alongside the permanent car park and adjacent sports pitch have also been established early to ensure site surface water during construction is well managed through the temporary filter drain and large attenuation tank.

The stored water is being used to feed the football pitches in dry season which gives access to a high volume of water without pulling on supplies. The team looked at environmental impact in great detail including using recycling materials, use of rainfall, natural materials being used, protecting the environment and animal welfare.
