One highlight for us was being shortlisted for the South Wiltshire Business of the Year Digital Marketing award. Another was launching another brand new SureSet ‘Supply Only’ product – Tree Pit Trade Packs.  

Some of our recent commercial installations…  

In Abergavenny, as part of a £1m project to improve the High Street, Nevill Street and St John’s Square, we laid a 224m² Norwegian Bronze access road at Castle Street Car Park. Improvements will be completed in time for Eisteddfod – a celebration of ‘Welshness’ in August.  Westward Ho!

Interesting fact: every year 330,000 gallons of water and five miles of toilet paper are used at the Eisteddfod Festival.  

We visited the seaside to lay 181m² of SureSet in Midnight around stone setts that form the words of the first verse of ‘If’ by Rudyard Kipling. This famous poem can be found on the promenade at Westward Ho!, North Devon.  

Interesting fact: Westward Ho! is the only town in Britain to have an exclamation mark in its name.  

At Grange Farm Centre in Chigwell, we lifted and replaced 291m² of failed resin bound paving (installed by another company). Read the full case study.

A few residential installations…  

Set in more than 900 acres, St George’s Hill in Weybridge is one of the most sought-after private estates in England. Access onto the gated estate is controlled by security personnel and restricted at all times. We installed another driveway on this prestigious estate – a 289m² Bronze driveway. We also installed driveways in Norwegian Pearl, Sterling and Barley Beach were installed in Croydon, Wickham Bishops and Hemingford Abbots.  

Interesting fact: in St George’s Hill, each house is required by local laws to have at least one acre of land.  

Nine Elms Point is an ongoing development of 645 studios, apartments and penthouses. We laid 650m² of Barley Beach and 650m² Sterling to pathways on the ground floor and raised walkway.  

Interesting fact: around 35,000 people are expected to move into all the new homes that are being built in the development of Nine Elms.  

New Permeable Paving by SureSet mobile app

Getting information or being able to buy a product immediately is something we have grown very accustomed to – and apps play a key role in making this possible.  

We have just launched our own mobile app, Permeable Paving by SureSet, which is available for free download in Google Play and itunes.       

Interesting fact: 63% of UK millennials prefer making purchases using a mobile app compared to any other platform.
