Tobermore offers a range of paving solutions for Pittville Student Village, Cheltenham

The University of Gloucestershire required permeable and impermeable paving that would complement each other aesthetically.

The University’s strategic commitment to be ‘centred on students’ was integral to the scheme.

Ireland Albrecht Landscape Architects sought paving that was similar in style and format for both permeable and impermeable areas.

Tobermore presented complementary permeable and impermeable paving solutions. Tobermore presented complementary products which feature sparkling granite aggregates. Natural granite alternatives; Fusion, Sienna and Hydropave Sienna were used in different colours and unit sizes to create a striking modern paving pattern.

Tobermore also supplied Granite Step units as well as Fusion Kerb and edging which matched the rest of the hard landscaping.

Lucy White, Planning Officer, commented: “The landscaping and feel of the internal courtyards is particularly successful and when they get more established, will lift the scheme further.
