Bulwell Outlaws BMX club chose Clark & Kent Contractors as the specialist contractor to reconstruct their national standard BMX track in Nottingham.
Clark & Kent were also selected to develop and construct the new pump track and car park areas on the BMX site.
Clark & Kent was chosen as the main contractors for the project due to their extensive knowledge and experience in the field, coupled with an outstanding health and safety record.
As part of the construction effort, Clark & Kent supplied and installed a new starting hill with Bensink Gate and all the relevant groundworks needed to support this.
A full drainage scheme was implemented along with new tarmacadam surface berms and a specialist surfacing of limestone and top soil.
A tarmacadam finishing area complemented the national standard BMX track.
The club also commissioned a 900 square metre car park. The work was carried out by Clark & Kent and included earthworks, excavations, sub-base surfacing and machine laid tarmacadam.
The BMX course in Sellers Wood Drive, Bulwell, was first built in 1987 but underwent the major makeover after falling into disrepair.
The course, including the Pump Track for training youngsters, was opened by Olympic hopeful Grant Hill.
Nottingham BMX club and charity Youth Projects 4Wheels raised the cash to complete the track rebuild and details are outlined in this BBC news story.
A club official commented at the time: "The club's development over the last ten years has been entirely due to the hard work and commitment of its volunteers, who are the key to the club's success."
Nottingham Outlaws rider Braden Bradford said of the new BMX facility: "The track now has a greater range of challenges and the new start gate is just incredible. The pump track is great fun too. There's something here for everyone."
The BMX bike club has steadily grown since the new track was built, achieving Sport England Clubmark status in 2011.
