ECT is proud to present its latest completed project: A stadium for mountain biking and trials riding at Epône in the département of Yvelines (78)
The work was carried out between June and September 2020. Thanks to the provision of excavated soil from the construction & public works sector in the western Paris area, it took only a short time.
This project, backed by the council of Epône, was constructed on land belonging to the commune. The site was designed in consultation with ORC Epône, the local cycling group for mountain biking and trials riding, with the aim of creating the first complete stadium for trials riding and mountain biking in the Île-de-France, for training and competitions.
The construction of workout facilities for trials riding and training tracks for mountain biking had to be done accurately and to specification. The teams worked together to produce the right outcome.
ECT’s fertile substrate – Urbafertil – was used to restore vegetation to the site
This development also stands out at as a site where ECT has made use of its fertile substrate, “URBAFERTIL”. Created on site, this growing medium recycles inert soil mixed with compost made from green waste. At Epône, the use of this ‘technosol’ made it possible to deal with the absence of topsoil (and to avoid bringing it in from elsewhere) when finalising the planting scheme.
