According to the UK Government ‘more than 143,500 new build homes were started up to December 2015 a rise of 23% on the same quarter a year earlier and up 91% when compared to the low point of the year up to June 2009’.  Alfred Homes, Winchester

We have certainly seen this growth reflected in the amount of SureSet permeable paving we have been laying for new housing developments. Just this month we have been busy installing resin bound pathways for new housing developments in West Bromwich – Clay Pit Lane, Whitehouse Park in Milton Keynes and tree pits outside the new Lyde Green Primary School on the Greets Green development in Emersons Green, Bristol. While in Winchester we laid driveways and access roads for new several prestigious properties being built at Sleepers Hill.

Our work in schools continued…
Where at Blackheath School in London we laid an accessible entrance ramp in Sterling Midnight and Midnight, as part of a landscaping project. And, as part of a project building a new 135,000m² City Campus right in the heart of Sunderland, we laid 112m² Chocolate courtyard and cycle rack.   Finally, we were pleased to be able to respond to a last minute request for an additional pathway at King’s School, Gloucester, just in time for their ‘open day’.  

Our residential resin bound installations included…
We laid numerous driveways, including 135m² in Marlborough, a 409m² turning driveway in High Wycombe and in Chertsey we installed 58m² of SureSet to a ramp and steps, laid on a concrete base with heating mat.    Natural gravel SureSet parking area in Marlborough

Our commercial resin bound paving installations included…
152m² of Sterling Silver footpaths for the new home of the Met Office and their ‘supercomputer’ at Exeter Science Park.  

At the Grade II* listed St Cross Building at Oxford University we installed 43m² Barley Beach and SureCell, creating a DDA compliant graded pathway to form an accessible entrance.  

For a new single-storey double height Parish Hall at Redland Parish Church in Bristol we laid a 121m² Norwegian Pearl accessible footpath and ramp. 

The refurbishment of Garden Halls by the University of London included Cartwright Gardens where we laid a 1293m² Chestnut footpath. Previously a private park that was only open to key-holders, the redeveloped Cartwright Gardens will be open to the public.
