Repairs are carried out in accordance with MOD publications and standards including series RA3500, specification 49 and Defence Works Functional Standards. Works include joint repairs, epoxy repairs, concrete repairs, asphalt surfacing, over banding and slurry sealant.
High Security Mesh Fencing
Benchmark was approached to assist in the future proofing of a large site. Works included re-profiling of existing ground levels, installation of CCTV ducting complete with furniture, sterile stone chipping margins, ground radar surveys and installation of approx 1.5km of high security fencing complete with access gates.
Helicopter Dispersal Airfield Markings
The existing Helicopter stand lining was no longer suitable and had to be removed from the existing concrete surface. Hydro- Blasting vehicles were employed to effectively remove particles reducing FOD issues on the Live Airfield. Satellite technology was used to map out new markings. Epoxy resin yellow & black paint was then placed using Ride on applicators and Manual Prams.
South Bristol Crematorium Ulti-Colour Paths
Bristol City Council approached us for the second time following our previous install in 2017 to further extend their crematorium plots. Just as in 2016 we set-out the site and installed buff coloured tarmac to the crematorium plot paths. The result is a hard wearing and aesthetically pleasing web of footpaths that fully complement the contemporary style of the crematorium.
