We were appointed by Toyota Motor Manufacturing (UK) Ltd to undertake the installation of a new solar canopy, used to power electric vehicles, at their site in Burnaston.

Works included the installation of Sudscape resin bound gravel to pathway areas leading from the main office building to the manufacturing buildings.

We utilised innovative, sustainable solutions, including the use of resin bound rubber (recycled car tyres) as a sub-base.

Ecopave setts made with recycled materials were laid to a riadl design around the new canopy; functioning as a public area for visitors and a charging area for electric vehicles used to transport visitors around site.

Large raised oak planters were sourced from local, sustainable suppliers, fitted with recycled local soil, wood chippings and planted with declining plant species native to the area.

Installation of drainage and ducting for the solar canopy completed the scheme.

All works were undertaken in close proximity to live manufacturing sites, therefore stringent traffic management plans were in place to ensure both the safety of our delivery teams, and minimal disruption to Toyota employees and visitors.
