Formpave renovates the historic Kingston Mills site

Formpave renovates the historic Kingston Mills site

Four different Formpave products have been used to complement the historic Kingston Mills site in the heart of Bradford on Avon and help to replace the dominance of the traditional highway design.

Kingston Mills is a mixed use, waterside development on the site of a former rubber works in the heart of Bradford on Avon. The scheme includes more than 170 new homes as well as office space, retail units, cafes, a community building and riverside path, interspersed with a series of courtyards.

Formpave’s Chartres Classic and Boulevard block paving, as well as the company’s EcoGranite kerbs and setts, have been installed in the highway, car parking and pedestrian zones of the development to complement the buildings and surrounding area.

The dominant building materials in the area are Bath stone and Purbeck natural stone so Formpave’s Chartres paving was supplied in Purbeck finish to fit perfectly with the surrounding architecture.

The paving used in the pedestrian zones, including the communal spaces and piazza-style areas around the commercial units, was supplied with a variable coursing width to create a more interesting design. Each layer contained 12 separate paving blocks of seven different sizes.

Formpave’s EcoGranite, used for the kerbs and setts, contains up to 77 per cent recycled content, making it one of the most sustainable paving options available.
