Thornbury Surfacing assist DIY SOS Big Build team

In March 2017 the DIY SOS Big Build team started a 9 day project in Hartcliffe, Bristol. The aim was to bring 24 year old Ryan home from the specialist Hospital in Gloucester where he had spent the last 5 years.

After seeing the call for trades in the local press the team at Thornbury Surfacing applied to help without hesitation.

Colin Westbrook our Commercial Manager was invited to attend a pre-start meeting on site in February. It was agreed that we would extend the drop kerb and reinstate the footpath to allow better access to the driveway. The second phase of works saw our team install the asphalt binder course layer on the driveway ready for the granite grey resin surface course which gave the drive a superb finish.

The programme itself was aired on the 29th July 2017 on BBC 1.

Ikea Reading – Highway Works, A4

Thornbury Surfacing LTD have carried out works at Ikea Reading – Highway Works, A4. The value of this contract was just over £1 million.

This project was extremely challenging as the A4 is a main arterial route into and out of Reading. This meant all works had to be completed without road closures and minimal disturbance to road users.

These works have been carried out to a high standard, within our scheduled program and were carried out in accordance with our strict health and safety requirements.

Thornbury Surfacing have always managed to accommodate the movements in our construction program and it feels they always try to go the extra mile if needed.

In summary, we have been impressed with the way Thornbury Surfacing carry out all aspect of works and would certainly consider using them on future projects.
