Durham CCC (EMIRATES RIVERSIDE STADIUM)
The Cricket square at the riverside was suffering from very poor levels and in certain areas was below the outfield. ATB were instructed by Durham CCC to undertake a complete square reconstruct to bring the finished level above the outfield and create a positive fall in both directions. This was a design and build project working alongside the ECB. The central wicket was also dug out and anew pitch install on an aggregate sub-base.
After removing the vegetation from the surface ATB reformed the base of the square to the new required falls based on our survey analysis. Wickets 1-8 received an importation of 80mm of new loam whilst the remaining wickets received a new build up of 50mm. All levels were formed and blended in using our laser guided levelling equipment. ATB also used the Korro to plane down a ridge in the outfield to tie in the new falls with existing contours and create a positive fall for surface water away from the square.
