National Self Build & Renovation Centre

Anyone looking for ideas or inspiration should pay a visit to our new permanent exhibition at the NSBRC in Swindon.

The NSBRC is the only permanent exhibition centre in the UK for self build, renovation and home improvements in the UK. You can find us on Stand TV 154 – it’s free entry and open from Tuesday to Sunday, 10.00am – 17.30pm.

Springfield First School ‘Space to grow, wings to fly’

We recently installed a colourful playground at this Worthing school.

Our expert Installation Team created a beautiful design representing the grass, sea, sun and cloud using recycled glass in our Atlantic, Winter Frost, Lemon Yellow and Yellow Green colours.

Hope and Homes for Children

To help mark their 20th Anniversary, we supported Salisbury based charity Hope and Homes for Children to screen the double BAFTA award winning film Finding Family on Sunday 7th September.

The film is directed by one of the charity’s very first beneficiaries, Oggi Tomic who tells the moving story of his return to Bosnia to find his family.

7 Bridges

The centre of Loughborough Junction is defined by a unique feature; from a single point six railway bridges are visible. The seventh bridge, Cambria was the focus of the 7 Bridges launch party on Saturday 6th September.

7 Bridges is an arts led regeneration project, part of which is an interactive reality app called ‘Loughborough Junction World War One’. You can download one of three stories following one of three colour coded (red, blue and orange) trails of individually designed paving slabs. Each colour tells a different story related to World War One.

SureSet were happy to support this project by providing the resin bound permeable paving for the slabs.

Technical Tip

According to our fabulous Technical Team, the most popular question being asked at the moment is ‘Can SureSet be non-permeable?’

In short, the answer is yes!

While by design, all of our resin bound paving is permeable, we can (on request) produce a non-permeable version. Read about our InBound® resin bound flooring here.


We are delighted to announce that we have recently joined an impressive cross-sector group of organisations dedicated to supporting the www.susdrain.org initiative. This initiative further demonstrates the growing industry support for the widespread delivery of Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS).

It is anticipated that over the next two years there will be a significant increase and improvement in the delivery of SuDS, with positive change driven by new guidance and the potential implementation of National Standards for Sustainable Drainage.

susdrain will help support improvements in SuDS delivery through a range of initiatives including new resources, summaries of the latest guidance, case studies and a series of topical SuDS events.

We are one of 29 organisations including Defra, the Environment Agency and other key industry players involved in this project from September 2014.

Since its launch in 2012, susdrain has provided a valuable range of resources for those involved in delivering SuDS.  Susdrain will continue to support drainage and highways engineers, planners, urban designers, landscape architects, land or housing developers, suppliers, flood risk managers, biodiversity/environment managers and the general public to increase knowledge and confidence in the delivery of SuDS.
