The NEC is the busiest exhibition centre in Europe, staging around 160 trade and consumer exhibitions each year, ranging from world-famous public shows such as Crufts and Clothes Show Live to huge international trade exhibitions like IPEX and Spring Fair, Birmingham. Over four million people visit the centre each year and with 20 halls totalling over 190,000sqm of exhibition space they’re also the biggest exhibition centre in the UK.
Occupying a 650-acre site with approx 12 miles of roads and approx 20,000 car parking spaces, Thomas Bow City Asphalt were awarded the Term Contract for the resurfacing, repair and maintenance of the site for a period of 3 years, with a possible extension of a further 1 year.
Whilst the NEC is considered to be a private site many of its roads are classified as public highways and therefore are required to be compliant with road traffic regulations. Our works will involve a wide variety of road resurfacing and repair works and will include sections of public highway, private roads, car parks and traffic Islands, all of which will form part of the NEC’s ongoing maintenance programme.
