ACO GROUNDGUARD restoration project at Markeaton Park in Derby
As part of a £3.4m restoration project at Markeaton Park in Derby, ACO Water Management helped to enhance the main car park to provide a welcoming green space for current and future generations to enjoy.
In 2013, Derby City Council received a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Big Lottery Fund as part of its Parks for People programme. The restoration project aimed to restore, rejuvenate and transform this historic park so it continues to remain a cherished amenity for many years to come. The project, scheduled to run over the course of five years, would involve physical enhancements as well as improvement to the park events and activities calendar. In addition to restoring the park’s
historic buildings, the money would help with creating new entrances and paths.
The main car park was considered the lynchpin in the project, as it would allow the general public, from the local area and further afield, the opportunity to visit the park, by providing modern
parking facilities for a large number of cars. 3,142 sqm of ACO’s award-winning ground reinforcement system GroundGuard was specified for the job , due to the installation savings for the
contractor, when compared to more traditional methods and the speed at which the product could be installed GroundGuard is a permeable, gravel-filled, ground reinforcement system which acts as a stabilisation tile. This ensures the gravel is held in place and helps to keep maintenance down to a minimum.
In addition, GroundGuard is over 90 percent porous and therefore achieves a highly efficient rate of surface water run-off, providing an ideal SuDs solution for car park projects. Not only is the system environmentally friendly, it is also cost-effective
as it eliminates the expense of having to install a supplementary drainage system.
The new car park will play an essential role in attracting the general public to visit the park from now and years to come.
ACO GroundGuard is suitable for a wide range of applications including paths, drives, parking areas and access routes. For more information about

ACO GroundGuard specified for Gamlingay ‘Eco-Hub’
ACO GROUNDGUARD specified for Gamlingay ‘Eco-Hub’
From a humble community centre to an award-winning eco-friendly hub, ACO Water Management helped to improve the sustainability credentials of Gamlingay’s local facility with a bespoke SuDS solution.
The community centre in Gamlingay, Cambridgeshire decided to create the ‘Eco Hub’ – a unique eco-friendly facility providing a variety of meeting spaces for community activities and local classes, alongside a self-contained corporate suite.
Situated conveniently on the Cambridgeshire Bedfordshire
border, the Eco Hub would be open daily to members of the community completely free of charge. Therefore a car park of a suitable size was essential to guarantee easy access to the facilities on offer.
Sustainability was a crucial factor to consider throughout the whole project. The premise of the Eco Hub was to create a facility that was not only beneficial to the environment but also to the local community as well. From the initial build right the way through to the final product, the Eco Hub was economically constructed, and designed to operate in a highly efficient manner upon completion.
With an extensive portfolio of sustainable water management systems, ACO was the perfect choice for the Eco Hub project. ACO specified 648 sqm of its ground reinforcement system GroundGuard,
creating six parking areas for over 40 cars.
Much of the building materials were recycled from the original building and those that were new were taken from renewable sources and this was very much the case for GroundGuard which offers the
complete SuDS solution.
GroundGuard is a permeable, gravel-filled stabilisation system and is, crucially, made from recycled plastic. The system is over 90 percent porous, resulting in a free draining car park with
a highly efficient rate of surface water run-off. The Eco Hub also filled the system with locally sourced gravel – making the finished installation even more environmentally friendly.
Another added benefit of GroundGuard is that it eliminates the expense of having to install a supplementary drainage system, helping to further reduce costs for the highly sustainable hub.
Following completion of the build, the Eco Hub was fitted with a variety of renewable technologies including solar panels, ground source heating and a rainwater harvesting system. In fact, this unique eco-friendly facility is acknowledged as being one of the most energy efficient community buildings in the country.
ACO GroundGuard is suitable for a wide range of applications including paths, drives, parking areas and access routes.
