Client: St Francis C of E School

Project: Paving

Department: Highways & Engineering

Date of completion: February 2021

Budget: £2,000


The client required the sandpit area to be extended as the old grass area was holding water and mud which in tuern was contaminating the play sand in the pit.


ODS was chosen because the school had worked with the hard landscape team on many other projects. The client acknowledges our experience and expertise, in this case, paving slabs.  


The main challenge was time-related as we had was squeezing this job during half term with only three days’ notice. Another issues on site was the tree root system and raising the slabs to avoid any potential damage to the structure of the tree.


We removed the waste and other items, raised the area by 100mm with a sand and cement mix to ensure the tree roots were kept intact. We mirrored the existing slab eye line.


“We have worked with ODS on several occasions on a number of premises enhancement projects. They are punctual, polite, hardworking and tidy and get the job done in the agreed timescale. The quality of the work done is always excellent which is why we come back to them time after time. I have no hesitation in recommending them to others.”
