  Skatepark construction
We have been the contractor of choice for many of the UK's premier skateparks. Concrete is the preferred medium for skatepark construction but requires exceptional skill in its implementation, from the initial groundwork preparation all the way through to final finishing of the surface. It's fair to say that the quality of the concrete can make or break a skate park. Our reputation for excellence on these most demanding of projects reflects the experience and expertise that we are able to bring to them. We have constructed over 50 skate parks around the UK to date, including flagship projects such as Cantelowes in Camden (top left) where, in addition to extremely complex formwork, we performed all ancillary works including pathways, drainage, landscaping and construction of the pavilion. Another recent prestige project was ‘The XC’ in Hemel Hempstead (top right), the UK's first indoor concrete skatepark.
    Drainage, landscaping, utilities
We specialise in deep drainage and pump chamber installations, and complex soakway systems designed to drain mass areas where there is no existing pipe infrastructure in place. This is a common situation with many skate park installations, which are usually isolated with no connection to any nearby pipes. We had to create a complex drainage system for both the bowl and Pavilion at the Cantelowes park in Camden, which required the installation of pumping facilities.

In addition to these kind of groundworks we also undertake ancillary work that can include installation of ducting, lighting, CCTV, pathways and access roads, as well as bringing water and gas services on to a site.

  Sprayed concrete application   Sprayed concrete application
Midas undertake all aspects of dry and wet sprayed concrete applications. We have carried out sprayed Shotcrete application for many Reinforced Concrete frame contractors. Our specialist teams can spray Contig/Secant piled walls, saving time on one-sided shutters. Once sprayed they can be left ‘as sprayed’ or finished to a smooth steel trowel finish. We can undertake all associated works, such as fixing shutters for kickers and also fixing of reinforcement.

We can provide comprehensive groundwork services including the preparation of earthworks, substructure and foundation work, pipeline and drainage implementation, connections to main sewers, and a wide range of other site preparation services to support construction or civil engineering projects of any scale.

Another of our prestige projects was 'The Trees' in Somerset, winner of the Grand Designs New Build of the Year Award in 2008. This technically accomplished structure was based around a superstructure that was built off-site and installed in one movement. Midas Construction (UK) Limited provided all groundworks and foundations for this project where, because of the nature of the installation, precision and accuracy were critical to its overall success.
