R G Carter Ltd- Cringleford Primary School

R G Carter Ltd- Cringleford Primary School

With offices across the East of England, R G Carter Ltd has been delivering construction and project management services for over a century. Drawing on extensive in-house expertise, the company is uniquely able to support the entire building process through a single point-of-contact, designing, engineering, constructing and fitting out all types of buildings in sectors such as retail, distribution, commercial, industrial, education, healthcare and leisure. 

A recent project – the building of a new primary school at Cringleford, approximately four miles to the southwest of Norwich - includes the construction of a new playing field. British Sugar TOPSOIL’s Landscape20 BS3882:2015-compliant general purpose topsoil was chosen for the job and 4,600 tonnes (2,475m3) were delivered to site over a three-week period in April/May 2023. Aylsham Plant Hire Ltd, working for the main contractor, successfully distributed the topsoil to a uniform depth of 250mm using a GPS Komatsu Dozer. 

Landscape20 was approved by R G Carter Ltd’s specialist landscape consultant to ensure the seed had a perfect sub-base in which to grow. Seeding will commence later this year, ready for the new intake of students in September 2024.  
Ed Carr, Project Manager for R G Carter Ltd, said:  

“The original site topsoil was not suitable for a playing field as it contained large flints and was too free draining. Landscape20 was approved to replace the top 250mm layer as a premium topsoil to give the field the best opportunity to thrive. The supply of topsoil from British Sugar TOPSOIL was excellent and ensured we were able to finish this section of work on time.”
