Stonemaster® triumphs at Salisbury Court

Stonemaster® triumphs at Salisbury Court

Charcon, the commercial hard landscaping division of Aggregate Industries, has successfully completed a significant delivery on the new £27m Salisbury Court student accommodation scheme in Edinburgh.

Appointed by contractors McAleer & Rushe for UNITE Students, Charon consulted with landscape architect, Harrison Stevens, to recommend the best hard landscaping products to complete the aesthetics of the street frontage on St Leonards Street and a private courtyard within the student accommodation area.

More than 1,100m2 of StoneMaster®, a premium precast concrete flag and block paving product, was supplied by Charcon to provide a high quality paving solution which complimented the stone clad of the surrounding building. Supplied in Sandy Buff, Sienna Buff, Amber Buff, Light Grey, Medium Grey and Dark Grey, the result was a visually pleasing design that respected the historic context of the neighbourhood, whilst providing a central courtyard for students to congregate and interact safely.

In a partnership approach with McAleer & Rushe, and groundwork contractor M Squared, Charcon managed the supply of StoneMaster® in a variety of different sizes and shades, whilst working to a challenging construction programme. By working closely with both parties, Charcon was able to ensure the correct product was available when required and complete the work within the designated timescales.

Mike Davies, Sector Marketing Manager at Aggregate Industries, said: “We were delighted to supply our popular range of StoneMaster® flag and block paving for this rewarding project. Due to the nature of the site on the edge of Edinburgh’s South Side Conversation Area, we approached this project with meticulous planning and sensitivity to the surroundings".
