Brief

Home to blue-chip companies, a host of visitor attractions, including @t Bristol, and a major new residential development, Bristol Harbourside is a 19-acre mixed-use development which is rapidly becoming one of the South West’s most sought after places to live, work and play.


For such a high profile scheme the landscape architect required a signature hard landscaping product to create a clean appearance, look attractive when weathered and also be in keeping with Bristol’s rich heritage. With more than 8,000 m2 of public realm within the development, the product also needed to be suitable for multiple applications including footways, access roads and car parking.

Solution

Our Andover Textured block paving already has a strong and established presence within the Bristol city area and was an obvious choice for the Harbourside scheme. The Silver Grey colour was chosen to provide a clean, contemporary appearance with exposed black and white Cornish aggregate adding texture to the landscape without creating an uneven surface.

We also worked closely with the contractor, providing estimated volume details to ensure that the correct quantities were ordered and delivered according to the construction programme.

Product features:

  1. Andover Textured block paving is available in several complementary colours. Equally at home in modern or traditional setting, its chamferless profile creates a smoother riding surface.
  2. Malvern is a premium quality flag incorporating innovative aggregate formulation. Colour, texture and size ranges complement existing landscapes or can create features in their own right.
  3. These products are suitable for all pedestrian areas, and areas with vehicular overrun, subject to the correct design procedures being followed*.
