In February we told you about our two new McDonald’s contracts. The first of the two in Nottingham has now been completed, and work on the next one is due to begin at the end of March.
Due to the volume of traffic that was expected on the site, our specifications were as with previous drive-thru’s changed slightly from our usual driveways, with 7 inches of concrete and steel reinforcement mesh being installed. Detection loops were then placed by in four positions throughout the drive-thru. Once the concrete was poured the client requested the use of charcoal colour and London cobble pattern throughout. Rather than use the usual surface colour hardener, our client specified the use of colour through charcoal pigment, which meant that the charcoal colour would run all the way through the concrete and not just the surface. On the corners of the drive-thru we used border mats and turned the pattern to suit the corners perfectly. Polythene was used to cover the kerbs to prevent the chance of staining the kerbs, and grills were removed from the aco drains, which were also covered.
Prior to completion we cleaned the drive-thru and cut in the crack control joints, followed by another clean. The drive-thru was then sealed using acrylic seal, and was now ready to be used by the public. This newly refurbished McDonald’s on the Victoria Retail Park, Nottingham was built next to an existing McDonald’s which will be demolished and replaced once the new one has formally opened.
