RonaDeck Resin Bound and Tree Pit paving the way to health at Elliott Chappell Health Centre

The £11m Elliott Chappell Health Centre is a new health centre developed on behalf of the NHS Hull. The new building provides better quality facilities for GPs and the community. The centre also houses a Lloyds Pharmacy and a range of community and voluntary services.

RonaDeck Resin Bound Surfacing was laid to a 700m2 area directly in front of the building to make an attractive public space. Seating was added to make the area more welcoming and to create a focal point. HLM Architects specified a Golden Harvest aggregate blend which gives a warm appearance to the health centre entrance.

The contractors mixed the two-part resin with a drill and paddle and then mixed it with the aggregate in a forced action mixer prior to the surfacing being trowel applied to the macadam base. The surfacing was ready for foot traffic after just four hours. Established trees growing around the property were retained and protected with raised beds containing RonaDeck Tree Pit System on loose aggregate. The porous SuDS compliant system allows water to penetrate to the trees’ root system aiding the health of the tree. The tree pit surface can be easily swept clean, creating a pleasant environment and a feeling of well-being for members of the community visiting the health centre.
