Client: Sunlands Holiday Village
Contractor: Simpsons Ground Workers
Type of works: supply and installation of Aquaflow permeable paving.
In 2007, Aquaflow permeable paving was used at the new GwelanMor Luxury Holiday Park in Portreath, Cornwall. An area in excess of 2,000 sq m of paving was installed throughout the site, providing car parking bays and path areas in between the luxury lodges and throughout the parkland.
Aquaflow provides an aesthetically pleasing paving solution for pathways and parking bays, and is an affordable solution that delivers the environmental benefits that Sunlands were looking for.
The project has benefited from a sustainable paving solution with high importance placed on the paving being complementary with the surrounding area. Aquaflows distinctive style and highly developed technique enabled this criteria to be met. The installation comprised the Aquaflow 80mm variant in Charcoal edged by a Red brindle standard kerb for the main areas and Red for demarcation. An infiltration system was also installed.
GwelanMor Luxury Holiday Park is set in beautiful countryside with spectacular views, and has been developed to include brand new Scandinavian-style lodges for holiday residence, as well as first class clubhouse facilities.
The Formpave system allows rain to infiltrate through a permeable concrete block paved surface into a unique stone sub-base where it is cleaned, by filtration and microbial action, before being released in a controlled manner into sewers or water courses, or infiltrated directly into the sub-grade.
