Charcon, the commercial hard landscaping division of Aggregate Industries, has successfully completed a significant delivery to the new £20 million Sybil Andrews Academy at the Moreton Hall development in Bury St Edmonds, Suffolk.
Appointed by local contractor, Barnes Construction, Charcon consulted with architects Concertus to recommend the best hard landscaping products to support ease of movement around the school, and complement the school’s green credentials, as well as its striking modern design.
To help enhance the sustainability rating of the school, more than 3,500m2 of Infilta 80mm permeable block paving in Grey and Charcoal, alongside nearly 3,000m² of Infilta specifier block paving in both Light and Silver Grey, was specified for the car park. This highly durable yet visually appealing sustainable urban drainage system (SuDS), thanks to its hidden 5mm spacer nibs, allows the ingress of surface water to pass through to a sub-base water storage system below.
Finally, just over 30m2 of Europa 80mm concrete block paving in Charcoal and Grey, recommended due to its anti-slip properties, was supplied to provide an aesthetic border to the car park.
Mark Bailey, Divisional Director at Barnes commented: "We worked closely with Charcon and benefitted from their technical abilities and product knowledge to supply the Academy with products that are not only cost-effective, but stylish and durable too. We couldn’t be happier with the outcome.”
