Switzerland – Dry-foot golfers

The Lunix® grass paver by Creabeton Matériaux was chosen by switzerland’s Migros chain for upgrading of its Moossee golf park, so that golfers will no longer muddy their shoes when they step out of their cars.

 

“Asphalting the carpark was unthinkable, because of environmental considerations”, explains Karin Studer, administrative manager of the Moossee golf park. “Surface runoff has to be able to percolate into the ground in situ. So we chose Lunix® grass pavers”.

  

The contractor appointed for the work stripped the grassed gravel bed to expose the compacted gravel sub-base, on top of which it placed a leveling course of coarse gravel, followed by finer gravel for bedding the concrete grass-paver units which were laid in March. Laying the pavers took five days.

VICAT'S VALUE-ADDED : Creabeton Matériaux provided services consistent with the size of the area to be paved, supplying an installation machine and an experienced operator. The machine takes a whole layer of pavers at a time from pallets and positions them to within a millimeter of adjacent units. The openings in the pavers are then filled with gravel, allowing rain to soak through easily.
