Because of the long school holiday, August is usually a busy month for us – and this year was no exception. Here are just a few of the schools that benefitted from SureSet resin bound permeable paving this summer…
Stoke Lodge Primary School in Patchway has a wonderful new landscaped play area. A 40m² SureSet permeable resin bound footpath in Barley Beach links together four brightly coloured circles, each with 1.5 metre play grade poles.
We installed a 130m² resin bound internal courtyard in Barley Beach for Burlish Park Primary School in Stourton on Severn. This brand new £5.5m building includes two sports pitches, a multi-use games area, car park and bicycle store.
Yewstock College in Sturminster Newton has a new permeable resin bound 125m² internal courtyard that provides access to the classrooms.
As part of a £3m redevelopment programme at Yarm School in Stockton on Tees, we installed SureSet permeable paving to the parking bays.
We are always excited to work on artistic projects and were delighted to help West Country artists Scraptors with their Sculpture Trail. ‘We will never forget’ commemorates the centenary of World War One and can be seen at the National Trust Stourhead estate in Wiltshire from September 1.
August was also a very popular month for driveway installations, varying in size from 65m² to 595m². Most were installed in traditional colours from our popular Natural Aggregate range, but one customer in Buckinghamshire opted for a Midnight driveway with a contrasting Sterling tree pit – and the result was visually stunning.
You can read the full case study on our website, but our customer said he was ‘ecstatic with the product’ and that SureSet had ‘exceeded every expectation he had of it.’
Another customer in St Albans chose Winter Frost for a 90m² patio and footpath installation which looks amazing!
With the majority of August being dedicated to school projects, many of our commercial installations are ongoing and will be completed during September. These include new pathways for the Kilburn Regeneration Project and Cheltenham Racecourse and a colourful external landscaping project in Wandsworth.
During August our nationwide network of Approved Installers also completed 22 installations for us.
