Three Mile Inn Gosforth groundworks and surfacing

Providing groundworks and surfacing to a hotel and restaurant remodelling project


The Three Mile Inn in Gosforth, to the north of Newcastle’s city centre, is a well-known pub and hotel venue, that was recently remodelled by owners, The Malhotra Group.

The Malhotra Group has owned and operated the venue for around eight years. Then around three years ago after consideration, planning and design, the Malhotra Group submitted its plans for a refurbished restaurant and the construction of a new 64 room hotel.

Our groundworks and surfacing approach

We have worked with The Malhotra Group for around 10 years, on a number of projects, including hotels, care homes and the private residences of the company’s directors. We therefore know the team very well and understand their requirements.

When it came to the surfacing of its car park, on this occasion there were some added complexities we needed to take into consideration. The drainage of the site would go straight into the Ouseburn at the back of the property, which is a small river that runs through Newcastle into the River Tyne. There were concerns that if rain was excessive, the river would not be able to sustain fast flowing water draining from the site. Therefore, we carried out additional groundwork preparation to lay a sub floor prior to the laying of the tarmac.

A sub floor is a permeable layer that is positioned below the tarmac and in this case, was designed to slow down the water flowing into the river.  

Once this work was carried out by our trained groundworks employees, we were then able to lay the tarmac and paint the lines on the carpark, which has capacity for 150 vehicles.

Atul Malhotra, Operations Director at Malhotra Group commented:  “It is always a delight to work with the Debmat team. I value their skills, knowledge and ability to get the job done right, which is why we work with them on all of our care homes and hotels and will continue to do so in the future.”

For more examples of how we work with our customers take a look at our case studies and explore our completed projects in tarmac, resin aggregate and paving.

With our ability to see a project through from groundworks to final surfacing, we can guarantee our work and your site – for more information contact us.
