August was a really busy month for school paving projects because the long summer holiday is the ideal time for refurbishment projects. You can read about some of the work we carried out for schools here.
Recent residential installations included:
For a development of flats at Tarquin Close in Coventry we completed a 140m² internal installation to a communal area in Bronze.
Driveway projects included 381m² Barley Beach in Taunton, 123m² Sterling Midnight in Chard, 116m² Norwegian Pearl driveway, laid up against granite setts and Aco channel drain in Winchester and a 64m² Apollo driveway in Leeds.
Number nine Arkwright Road in London is nearing the end of a project converting offices back to residential use – nearly 100 years since the original large detached villa was converted into offices. One of the finishing touches is a 326m² Bronze parking area.
Windmill Farm in Upper Langdon is a brick tower mill built in 1810 and converted into a house around 1900. The current owners are restoring the windmill including new sails to generate their own electricity. As part of the restoration project we laid 500m² of Sterling Silver, Sterling Forest Green and Chestnut to pathways, terraces and balconies.
Lyde Green is a housing development in Emersons Green, Bristol, designed to appeal to families, first-time buyers, investors and professionals. As the development is nearing completion we were on site installing 421m² of tree pits in Norwegian Pearl.
Our Chocolate Natural Aggregate was the perfect match for the parking area and pathway for the stone built Old Rectory in Marlborough – a Grade II listed four bedroomed property.
Recent commercial projects included:
Following the demolition of Studios and Stages at Television Centre, in November 2015, the construction of 950 homes, offices, new Soho House and a range of leisure facilities is nearing completion. As part of the finishing touches to the external features of this development in White City we laid 354m² of Smokey Rose – the colour was decided upon following a request for a “pink/light grey colour to complement adjacent paving”.
In Abergavenny we laid pathways and tree pits in Norwegian Bronze and Astro Peake to Castle Street Car Park.
What better pathway surfacing for The Living Rainforest than SureSet Permeable Paving! The Newbury based charity immerses visitors in real rainforest experiences.
For Grangewood Farm Livery in Swadlincote we installed 478m² of bespoke Harvest Ivory to the entrance of the private stables.
Newly opened Savernake View in Marlborough, Wiltshire is a 24 hour residential, nursing, dementia and respite care for the elderly. We were onsite to lay a 250m² footpath in our natural looking Barley Beach.
