The Charcon commercial hard landscaping division from Aggregate was selected for both the deterrent paving solution and main pedestrian approach at Derby’s Multi-Sports Arena. Derby City Council and Sports England, with the support of British Cycling, have joint-funded the development of one of the UK’s first Olympic legacy projects – the Derby Multi-Sports Arena.
The company supplied Charcon Portuguese Granite, which was used as the deterrent paving solution for the full perimeter of the building, as well as a substantial quantity of its Charcon Andover Textured premium pre-cast concrete paving in Silver Grey and Midnight Grey. This was supplied in a linear flag format to provide both a high quality main pedestrian approach to the arena whilst also complementing its futuristic metallic cladding envelope.
Thanks to the extensive portfolio of Charcon commercial paving solutions, Derby’s Multi-Sports Arena will now benefit from stylish, functional and durable paving which is sure to last for as long as the arena itself. Andrew Roe, Associate Director at Wardell Armstrong Architects, said "With the support of the Charcon team, we were able to develop a palette of paving materials to meet the demands for an economical but high quality approach to the building”.
