Charcon, the commercial hard landscaping division of Aggregate Industries, has supplied a complimentary range of precast concrete flags, blocks and kerbs to Evolution Gateshead for its renowned multi-million regeneration project: Gateshead BIG.
Gateshead BIG is the UK’s largest residential regeneration programme outside of London. It consists of 19 sites which will be developed over the next 15-20 years, covering 70 hectares of land and delivering 2,400 new, good-quality homes and fantastic neighbourhoods that people will want to live and grow in.
With designs prepared by a conglomerate of architects, landscape architects and surveyors, including Alison Brooks Architects, Studio Egret West, S333, Red Box Architects, Queensberry Design and Robinson Landscape Design, Charcon was tasked to provide hard landscaping solutions that would pave the way for good vehicular access and safe pedestrian routes.
Drawing from its extensive range of flag and block paving, Charcon was able to recommend an appropriate and cost-effective palette of over 10,600m2 of hard landscaping materials. 5,880m2 of Moordale® Textured flag paving in Grey was installed, offering a premium yet cost-effective solution for the pedestrian areas. Ideal for urban pavements, Moordale Textured incorporates yorkstone and limestone aggregates to provide the very best performance and durability, as well as good slip-resistance values.
