Resin bound and resin bonded systems are not only long lasting and suitable for practically any surfacing project, from driveways and footpaths, to housing, retail or office developments and landscaping schemes. In addition to being hardwearing and easy to install, one of the biggest drawers of resin surfacing systems is the almost unlimited array of decorative finishes.
Here are some of the more interesting decorative surface projects that we have worked on in recent years:
For this project in Stratford, Warwickshire, our client wanted their driveway to be split into two sections in contrasting colours to create an eye-catching, yet still restrained finish. For the bulk of the driveway, we installed a resin bound system using sandy coloured gravel, with a rectangular portion instead finished in a grey aggregate. To create neat boundaries and separate the two sections of driveway, we installed cobblestones of a darker grey than the aggregate.
Your driveway is often one of the first chances that you get to make a strong impression on anyone that visits your home. A client in Knowle, near Solihull, chose to welcome visitors to their home with a bold choice of colour for their driveway. We installed a resin bound surfaces in rhine gold aggregate, fitting in with the fold them of their home exterior.
Apartment Complex, Barrow in Furness
We were proud be part of a 5 million pound investment in Barrow in Furness, installing an extensive walkway system at the Maritime Apartments complex of 318 self-contained living spaces. We were called upon to lay 2,400 square meters of Chinese Bauxite, forming a striking walkway through the communal gardens at the centre of the complex.
Hospital Courtyard, Wythenshawe Hospital
In 2016, we were excited to be a part of a BALI award winning landscape project at Wythenshawe Hospital in Manchester. Our part in the project was to create a colourful and child friendly surface for the hospital courtyards. We used a combination of coloured gravels to create a sea themed surface finish.
Barry Island Sea Front
In 2015, we worked on a major redevelopment of the Barry Island seafront, near Cardiff. During the project, the old tarmac pathways were replaced with a new resin bound surfacing system in a sandy and red design, making an extremely visual impact.
Another large project we worked on was the development of the recreational areas and pathways for MediaCityUK in Salford, Greater Manchester. To create the recreational area with outdoor eating and drinking facilities, we used a combination of silver grey granite and orange aggregate to create an eye catching design. We installed a resin bonded system where grey formed the base coloured, with orange aggregate forming large contrasting areas in various shapes.
