Restoring Safety and Functionality: Griffin Groundworks’ Block Paving Project in Dartford


At Griffin Groundworks, we take pride in our commitment to creating safe and functional spaces. A recent project at the Yew Tree Social Care Centre in Dartford exemplifies our dedication to delivering effective solutions. The challenge was a sunken and deteriorating block paving entrance, and our task was to restore it to a safe and usable condition.

Sunken Block Paving: A Hazard in Need of Attention

Block paving, while aesthetically pleasing, can pose problems when not properly maintained. Over time, it’s not uncommon for block paving to become uneven and sunken, resulting in tripping hazards. This was the issue at the Yew Tree Social Care Centre. The entrance had seen better days, with sunken blocks causing both safety concerns and usability issues.

Lift and Relay Project: Restoring Safety

Our team’s solution to this problem was a lift and relay project. The first step was to carefully lift the existing sunken block paving. Once removed, we addressed the underlying issue by installing a new sub-base to provide a solid foundation. We then applied a precise screed to ensure a level surface. Finally, the blocks were meticulously relaid, creating a stable, secure, and visually appealing entrance.

Prioritising Safety and Usability

Ensuring the safety of visitors and staff at the Yew Tree Social Care Centre was our primary goal. Sunken block paving can lead to accidents, making the area hazardous. With our lift and relay project, we successfully mitigated these safety risks, offering a level and even entrance that everyone can use without concern.

Enhancing Functionality

A functional entrance is essential for any facility. Whether it’s staff arriving for work, visitors coming to the centre, or residents accessing the services provided, a safe and usable entrance is crucial. Our project not only resolved safety issues but also enhanced the functionality of the Yew Tree Social Care Centre’s entrance.

In conclusion, our lift and relay project at the Yew Tree Social Care Centre in Dartford is a testament to our dedication to safety and functionality. We look forward to continuing our work in Kent, prioritising safe and usable spaces for everyone.
