Case Study

Project: Sir Matt Busby Way
Sir Matt Busby Way
Client: Manchester United Football Club
Contractor: English Landscapes
Site: 4,200m2
Resiblock Product: Resiblock Resiecco
Date: July 2011

The Site

2011, an important year for Manchester United Football Club. It saw the celebration of Sir Alex Ferguson’s 25 year service to the club and the repaving of Sir Matt Busby Way and of its main entrance, comprising 4,200 m2 of small element, flexibly laid clay blocks from
Wienerberger and flag paving from Marshalls PLC.

The Challenge

Concern was expressed with regard to the erosion of jointing sand from the cleaning regimes, i.e. pressure washing and vacuum sweeping, leading to paver destabilisation and ultimately paving failure and associated increased maintenance costs. In addition, the significant staining from the 3 million pedestrians visiting the club annually.

The Solution:

Resiblock Ltd was consulted, culminating in the installation of its product Resiblock Resiecco, a single pack, specialist, water based paving sealer which stabilises the jointing sand, preventing its erosion from heavy duty cleaning regimes, whilst providing significant stain protection to the surface of the paving. Once cured, it remains fully elastomeric thereby accommodating the small elastic deflections incorporated with the pavement design.

The Benefits:
