The Mill Acadamy Primary School Playground Resurfacing, Crawley

Service: Commercial, Hard Landscaping, Paths

Thank you for the fantastic job done at the front of school. It is so carefully done and your team left the site immaculate. We also really appreciate the fact that you held the original quoted price for us for the length of time that you did, as that is not something any other contractors have done over the last 18months and given the current climate.

We are looking forward to hopefully working with you in the future (if you remember, there’s still a lot to do!) and I will highly recommend SGS to other headteachers in the region.

The Results

New Paving, Fresh Tarmac Paths And Parking For This School In Ilfield, Crawley

At SGS Surfacing, we take great pride in transforming outdoor spaces. In this project, we resurfaced a primary school in West Sussex, making it safer and more functional for pupils, staff and parents to enjoy.

We had the pleasure of working at The Mill Primary Academy in Crawley. We were tasked with resurfacing the school grounds, replacing the old worn paving with lovely new tarmac footpaths.

Our team got to work, removing the old and tired paving slab areas and replacing them with beautiful new tarmac footpaths that seamlessly blended with the surrounding areas. We carried out a range of services to achieve this, including porous tarmacking, general tarmacking, relaying drainage pipes, constructing acodrains, laying block pavers, granite setts, and resin bonding. The project also involved complete road construction, including excavation, installing membranes, and type 3 backfilling and compacting. Check out the impressive mound of rubble after excavation, all ready for recycling in picture 5.

Thanks to our hard work, the school now has a safer, more functional, and aesthetically pleasing outdoor space for students and staff to enjoy.

We are proud of the work we carried out and thrilled with our shining testimonial! Can we get a gold star?

School Resurfacing Testimonial

Very happy to give a positive reference for SGS.

They bid for the contract competitively and won against other local contractors so I believe their pricing is good, we certainly think we got value for money.

The works they undertook here included:

  • Porous tarmacking
  • General tarmacking
  • Relaying drainage pipes manholes and constructing acodrains
  • Block pavers
  • Granite setts
  • Resin bonding
  • Full road construction including excavation installing membranes and type 3 backfilling and compacting

We had a team of 7 SGS workers here headed by Lorne who is in charge of the team and also site foreman. The whole team work very hard, there’s no standing around idly. They started when they said they would and were here daily from 7:30 am to 4 pm and they completed the contract on time.

They had a difficult task to manage working around allowing continued access to 4 properties and they did that efficiently

The quality of the workmanship was excellent, when problems arose along the line (there were very few) they always ensured they pre-discussed solutions with me and there were no cost overruns.

I would recommend them highly. As a property developer with 40 years experience, letting tarmacking contracts is always a worry because there are so many cowboys in the business but SGS are thoroughly professional, efficient and conscious of achieving a high-quality standard of finish. I really couldn’t fault them and they are also very personable and friendly individuals.

So in summary Iā€™d give them a 5-star rating.
