ACO GroundGuard for Gamlingay Eco Hub

ACO GroundGuard for Gamlingay Eco Hub

ACO Water Management helped to improve the sustainability credentials of Gamlingay’s local facility with a bespoke SuDS solution.

The community centre in Gamlingay, Cambridgeshire decided to create an eco-friendly facility providing a variety of meeting spaces for community activities and local classes, alongside a self-contained corporate suite; the ‘Eco-Hub’.

The Eco Hub would be open daily to members of the community completely free of charge. Therefore a car park of a suitable size was essential to guarantee easy access to the facilities on offer.

With an extensive portfolio of sustainable water management systems, ACO was the perfect choice for the Eco Hub project. ACO specified 648 sqm of its ground reinforcement system GroundGuard, creating six parking areas for over 40 cars.

GroundGuard is a permeable, gravel-filled stabilisation system and is, crucially, made from recycled plastic. The system is over 90 percent porous, resulting in a free draining car park with a highly efficient rate of surface water run-off.

The Eco Hub also filled the system with locally sourced gravel – making the finished installation even more environmentally friendly.

ACO GroundGuard is suitable for a wide range of applications including paths, drives, parking areas and access routes.
