Resurfacing and extension of playground and car parks
The importance of good education cannot be stretched enough. As a consequence, BG Graspointner love projects that help improve schools and educational facilities. The Marion Vian Primary School in the UK, decided to do an extension of playground and car parks and Graspointner's UK Team was in charge of the drainage concept. It was decided to use their BG-FILCOTEN® tec, a channel system that offers the superior characteristics of FILCOTEN® HPC (High Performance Concrete) and complements these with additional safety aspects.
