For all those digger enthusiasts out there

Montpellier Walk Cheltenham

English: Caryatid, Montpellier One of 32 such ...

Grimshaws are just about to start working on repairs in Montpellier Walk, Cheltenham.

The properties in this unique shopping area are separated by 32 caryatids (figures based on the classical models on the Erechtheion in Athens).

Two date from 1840, made by the original London sculptor Rossi and the remainder were created by a local man from Tivoli Street.

I hasten to add we are not touching the caryatids, just the paving and road surface!

Resurfacing Works for Worley Parsons

Grimshaw Group CheltenhamI had a very pleasant telephone call from Chris Meakin at Worley Parsons reference the works completed at Tewkesbury.

He said that they were “highly impressed with the professionalism of Grimshaws and the way in which our guys got on with the job in hand. They certainly had not expected, or previously experienced, such a professional approach by any surfacing contractor….it was also clear that we understand and can meet National Grid/Transco stringent safety standards”.

Chris said that he had visited the Tewkesbury site today and was impressed with the standard of workmanship and particularly so the macadam surface around the parking bollards, hence the telephone call.

Gloucestershire Playing Fields Association Awards

Great news, Kings Stanley have just been awarded Best Playing Field of the Year, with the runner up North Nibley.

Meanwhile Chipping Campden won Best Playground of the Year and the runner up was Bredon.

As the official sponsor, Grimshaw see it as an opportunity to put something back into the local sports community we have been working with since 1947.

Unfortunately the youngest member of the testing team did reach overload again this year, ‘please mummy, I don’t want to go to another playground’!

Flood Alleviation

Grimshaws were recently contacted by a previous tennis court customer to help solve flooding problems.

Following changes upstream in water management, a previously dry stream bed had become awash and eroded 5ft deeper. This then threatened the stability of the garden and the existing tennis court.

Grimshaw reconstructed the bed and then used a system of gabions to stabilise the area.

Access was via a neighbours field so work was timed to fall inbetween the harvest of one crop and the sowing of the next.
