Landscape construction progress at Victoria Park, Leicester


Ground Control’s Construction team is currently working on an exciting new project at Victoria Park, Leicester, on behalf of Leicester City Council.

The £2.2million contract includes refurbishment and extension of the Granville Road Car Park in Leicester, along with the creation of a new processional route from London Road through the car park to the war memorial at the other end of the park. In addition, we are also undertaking the complete renovation / rebuild of the existing tennis courts including new fencing, retaining walls and surfacing and lighting.

Works include creation of 240 new parking bays and roadways, installation of new street lighting system inclusive of all ducting, electric car charging points, feeder pillars, 37 columns and light fittings, erection of 64 bollards, creation of 50 tree pits using the green blue urban strata cell system with all associated root directors guying systems and irrigation systems, inclusive of the resin bonded surface grills, fencing, CCTV installation.

The architect and council have opted for a very high end pallet of materials including conservation kerbing throughout, along with large quantities of grey and buff ‘Ulticolour’ tarmac.

As part of this contract, we have inducted over 100 people on to the scheme with between 15 and 30 staff on site at any one time including a permanent site engineer, site agent and construction management team.

We’re making great progress, follow Ground Control on Twitter for updates as it happens:

    What is a Stakeholder?

    A stakeholder is a Mircosite that has the power to highlight a product or service, launch a promotion, or promote brand awareness to the construction industry in a way that full websites or more traditional marketing cannot.

    All stakeholders have the ability to have their latest press releases and case studies promoted across the UK Construction Online platform. UK Construction Online is updated daily, with the latest news across all sectors within the construction industry and all stakeholders are promoted on both social media and to a mailing list of over 122,000 subscribers.
