Aggregate Industries Charcon have provided their Andover Concrete Block Paving as part of a £3.1 million investment by Maidstone Borough Council to regenerate Week Street and Gabriel’s hill to enhance the town centre.
The blue textured Andover block paving features in a basket weave design to creatively reflect the colours uniquely associated to Maidstone Borough Council, whilst being surrounded by grey block pavers to compliment the design.
Andover concrete block paving contains granite aggregates and was selected due to its characteristics of being hard-wearing and robust.
It’s produced in the UK, using locally sourced materials, and contains up to 50% recycled and reclaimed aggregates.
Mark Barter, Sales Director for Charcon, said: “Maidstone Borough Council initially used granite in a previous phase of the high street, however for this section they needed a product that was cost-effective and easy to install, whilst emulating the aesthetics of natural granite.”
“To ensure we got the right colour for the blue feature, we provided various materials and samples until we found the ideal solution for the project.”
“The bespoke product has been delivered to site and work is progressing well. We are looking forward to its completion next year, where we hope the paved weave will create an eye-catching design for visitors and residents of Maidstone and bring a new lease of life to the high street.”
