Cheltenham Racecourse, Gloucestershire
Location: Cheltenham Area: 3,755m² Material: 6mm Chocolate
Famous for its jump racing, Cheltenham Racecourse is located at Prestbury Park in Gloucestershire. The dream of all horse owners, trainers, jockeys, stable staff and breeders is to have a winner there.
The Jockey Club announced Kier Construction as the main contractor for a two year, £45m development project at Cheltenham Racecourse in March 2014.
Part of the development included the resurfacing of some new and existing areas. To withstand the huge number of visitors to this World famous racecourse, the surface had to be practical: extremely durable, accessible and easy to maintain; it also had to be stylish dressed to impress just like the race-goers.
With SureSet's 15 year guarantee and with the added benefit of no loose stone or puddles, Kier specified SureSet for this high profile installation.
The 3,755m² project included surfacing the Plaza, the See You Then Terrace, Hurdlers Hall and a new pathway.
Working closely with Architects Roberts Limbrick and Landscape Designer Illman Young, careful planning ensured that all of the design components either complement or contrast each other.
In 2014, our Approved Installer Pebbo worked with us to install 2,555m² of 6mm Chocolate from our Natural Aggregate range to the Plaza, the See You Then Terrace and, the bar underneath the terrace, Hurdlers Hall. A 1,200m² pathway to be installed in 2015 will complete the project.
A tribute to the history of racing, Arkle now stands in the newly installed Plaza, and slabs with horseshoes from the celebrated Quevega, the first horse to win six times at the Cheltenham Festival, are to be placed within SureSet paving in Hurdlers Hall.
The project is due to be completed in time for the Cheltenham Festival in April 2016.
