Addagrip Terraco resin bound Stonebound has been installed by approved contractor Thortech Ltd for paths and walkways as part of the stunning new development at the South Wales Police HQ site in Bridgend, Wales.
The new 6,500m2 facility designed by Powell Dobson Architects offers a combination of offices and learning in an open plan 4-storey building to provide a centralised location for delivery of courses and examinations for recruits.
The client was looking for a decorative, low maintenance natural aggregate surface that would be hard wearing and provide a seamless paving option for the walkways around the new building. Porosity was an important consideration to ensure good drainage and reduce surface water.
Thortech Ltd were appointed by Horan Construction, on behalf of Wilmott Dixon, to install 2517m2 of Stonebound resin bound porous surfacing to create decorative, hard wearing, permeable pathways around the building and as part of the landscaping.
The installation commenced in October 2021 and was completed in January 2022, much to the client’s satisfaction.
