Our October highlight…
…was replicating the famous zebra crossing for Abbey Road Studios.
Part of Universal Music’s ongoing expansion plan is a gift shop and we were contracted to lay SureSet on the main ramped entrance to the new shop. Full case study coming to our website soon.
Our residential installations
A total of four natural aggregate driveways in London, High Wycombe, Cambridge and Surrey were installed using colours of Norwegian Pearl, Barley Beach and Norwegian Bronze and two pathways in Buckinghamshire and Chiswick.
In Tunbridge Wells, we completed footpaths at the Lakewoods Housing Development where our Barley Beach Natural Aggregate sits perfectly with the countryside environment and landscaped streets.
Our network of Approved Installers completed 40 projects during October including a replacement 120m² Chestnut driveway for a couple in Poole – you can read the full case study ‘No problem should ever be solved twice’ on our website.
We carried out another repair for a property in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. A driveway and car lift were installed by another company which began to break up after just four months. Their landscaper, who we regularly work with, suggested replacing it with SureSet. When we removed the existing material to prepare the base to our requirements we found out why it had failed so quickly – the resin bound material had been laid at an 8mm depth. To put that into perspective, we installed the replacement surface at a depth of 22-35mm.

Our commercial installations
At Vodafone’s Head Office in Newbury we installed a footway and steps leading from their car park to the office building. With the steps being made out of wooden sleepers and the car park being in a woodland style setting our Natural Aggregate Barley Beach was a perfect match.
We completed two courtyards at CUBRIC (Cardiff University’s Brain Research Imaging Centre). The new £44m brain research imaging centre is due to open in spring 2016.
At Castle School in Cambridge we installed an additional footpath and completed a 570m² pedestrianised area at Aylesbury Magistrates Court.
Our work continues at Cheltenham Racecourse, University of Birmingham, Tollgate Retail Park in Essex and a brand new retail and restaurant complex called ‘The Crescent’ in Hinckley, Leicestershire…
