Our Resin Bound Round Up for November

Category: Project, Sureset Blog

Posted 29th November 2015 by Ben Shave


We have been working with Walter Jack Studios on an art project at a Taylor Wimpey Development in Wandsworth. The design includes eight (full and half) 1.5m ‘columns’ and four 1.8×3.6m ‘carpets’ using colours from our Spectrum® range of recycled glass.  

“We approached SureSet to use their material in ways it hadn’t been used before. Firstly working with them on prototypes and samples to achieve our aim.  

They have been, at all times, professional, intelligent, enthusiastic, generous and patient – and very persistent.  

The result is a triumph. Thanks to all for a truly excellent job. I hope we get to work together again soon.”

Residential installations  

Ever wondered what a SureSet installation looks like?
Have a look at our time lapse video of a fully SuDS compliant driveway. The installation consisted of 45m² of our sub-base SureCell® topped with 6mm Natural Aggregate in Norwegian Bronze. The driveway was finished off with a feature poppy made from our Spectrum® range of recycled glass in Traffic Red and Traffic Black.  

We were back in Allington, Wiltshire to complete an extension to the Barley Beach resin bound driveway we installed in 2014. The homeowner likes the fact that after powerwashing the drive there are no puddles, and their cat enjoys the warmth of the sun retained in the SureSet!  

In Thurrock, the new Derry Avenue Development – 25 apartments for over 55’s – is now surrounded by 205m² of stunning accessible SureSet resin bound footpaths in Almond.  

While our Approved Installers carried out most of our Residential installations during November, we completed Phase 2 of a project for Chelsea Manor Court in London and installed a patio for Callaways Farm in Wellington, Somerset.

Our work continues with educational establishments…  

It was our third project for Kensington Prep School in London where we installed additional decorative resin bound paving in Sterling and Primrose.  

With a bespoke blend to match the school colours we recreated the logo for Eden Girls’ School, Coventry at the entrance to their new school. Construction began in January on the all-girl Muslim free school in Foleshill which is run by the Tauheedul Free School Trust.  

Hotham Primary School in Putney is nearing the end of a refurbishment and extension project to accommodate more children. We installed permeable resin bound paving to a pedestrian area around established trees in Barley Beach as part of the landscaping scheme.  

Commercial installations  

At Woodland Manor Care Home in Chalfont St Peter, Buckinghamshire we installed a Barley Beach resin bound pathway. This brand new 24-hour nursing care home for elderly people and those living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia is due to open in January 2016.   

As part of the redevelopment of Walnut shopping centre in Orpington, London we installed a double tree pit outside the new Odeon Cinema.  

For The Methodist Church in Tower Hamlets we installed a fabulous looking ramped pathway in Barley Beach.

The installation of a 570m² resin bound pedestrian area contributed to the redevelopment of the old Buckinghamshire County Council offices.  

As part of a £6m refurbishment project at Tollgate Retail Park in Colchester, we installed 211m² of our grid structure sub-base SureCell® and Tuscan Terracotta creating fully permeable tree pits and pathways in the car park.  

In Newmarket, a new National Heritage Centre for Horseracing is being built on the site of the Palace House and Stables. We were there installing a 110m² Chocolate internal courtyard.
