Charcon breaks the mould for Cannon Wharf Business Centre

September 2016

Charcon, the commercial hard landscaping division of Aggregate Industries, has successfully completed a significant delivery to the first construction phase of Cannon Wharf Business Centre in South London. 

Materials supplied included just over 6,000m2 of StoneMaster in Mid Grey and Light Grey hues and almost one kilometre of Eco Countryside Kerb. The products were specified due to their high quality finish of lightly etched premium granite aggregate. 

Working in partnership with the designers, Townshend Landscape Architects, the Charcon specification team added a new 300x100x80 size to the StoneMaster range, specifically for the project. The paving has been utilised in the project’s public realm, including courtyard areas and access roads, complementing and enhancing the buildings it surrounds.   

With up to 50 per cent and 82 per cent of reclaimed and recycled material respectively, the use of Charcon’s StoneMaster and Eco Countryside Kerb hard landscaping products, is helping client, Barratt London, meet the project’s sustainability targets. 

With two different paving products supplied in large quantities, the logistics of ensuring the client had what they needed and when within phase one was planned to the letter. The team at Charcon worked closely with the groundworks team to establish a detailed delivery schedule, adhering to a range of strict site rules and regulations. 

Mike Davies, Specifications Manager at Charcon, said: “The Cannon Wharf project is significant for the Surrey Quays area, as development continues along this part of the River Thames, and we’re very excited about the phases to come. 

“By collaborating early, we were able to bring our expertise and product knowledge to the table to ensure the right solution for the project was specified.” 

Cannon Wharf is located five minutes’ walk away from Greenland Dock and will replace an existing business centre space to provide new homes, commercial space and public realm. A variety of large and medium scale buildings will comprise 6,588m2 of commercial space and 679 residential units along with an on-site energy centre, 401 car parking spaces, cycle parking and associated landscaping.
