Amber Valley Stone supplies precast landscaping features for Bournemouth pier approach

Amber Valley Stone supplies precast landscaping features for Bournemouth pier approach

As part of Bournemouth Council’s Seafront Development and Regeneration Programme, Amber Valley Stone was appointed by Willmott Dixon to supply precast landscaping features for the Bournemouth pier approach.

They supplied precast planters and island features, designed in keeping with the history and geology of the pier approach.

Using white, acid-etched stone, the project featured 54 planters, typically 700mm high and 500mm wide weighing around 1 tonne each.

Six feature islands were also manufactured, some weighing around 7 tonnes, and incorporated embossed marine patterns which were formed when the stone was cast by using RECKLI artico® components within the moulds.

The hard landscaping features, produced with Spanish Dolomite aggregates to give the surface a sparkling finish, can now be seen at the Pier Approach, bringing a new lease of life to the area.

Alex Manning, Building Director at Willmott Dixon, commented: “On this challenging project Amber provided a committed and proactive service in design, delivery and aftercare services. The finished project is a significant addition to the seafront.
