    Rain, rain, go away - porous surfacing for nature reserve

    The new visitor centre at Hengistbury Head – the stunning nature reserve near Bournemouth - was opened in December and we are proud to report that the outside area has been finished off in Resin Bound Terrabound (installed by our approved contractor Total Protection (GB) Ltd).

    Hengistbury Head is acclaimed for its diversity of wildlife and geology and is protected as a Site of Special Scientific Interest. The land was declared a Local Nature Reserve in 1990, as a commitment by the town of Bournemouth to conserving and enhancing the environment.

    Terrabound was chosen for its porosity and, even with the heavy rain we’ve experienced recently, Jacqui van Bommel, Landscape Officer at Bournemouth Borough Council says that the surfacing is performing well.

    ‘The Hengistbury Head Visitor Centre has been open for the last six weeks. We’ve been very busy and the Terrabound looks as good as the day it was laid,” says Jacqui. “While the surrounding surfaces have been covered with water and mud, it is very gratifying to see lovely dry, clean golden Terrabound next to it.”

    She continues: “The main courtyard previously used to flood regularly and, with our drainage interventions and the porosity of the Terrabound, I am very pleased with how the surface has performed so far, even with an extremely high water table.”

    We worked closely with Jacqui over the choice of gravel incorporated in the Terrabound. She specified some local stone and we provided testing to check suitability.

    See you at Ecobuild!

    We are delighted to report that we’ll be at Ecobuild again this year – the world’s leading event for sustainable design, construction, energy and the built environment. Ecobuild is taking place at ExCeL in London, from Tuesday 4 March to Thursday 6 March, and we’ll be on stand S1729.

    We’ll be focusing on our external resin bound systems and, aware of the wet weather this year, we will be highlighting the porous properties of our resin bound systems. Products you’ll be able to see will include Terrabound Resin Bound Surfacing, Addabound Resin Bound Surfacing, Addaset Resin Bound Surfacing, Addacolor Resin Bound Surfacing, Addastone Resin Bonded Surfacing and the Addastone Tree Pit System. All of these are available in a variety of colours.


    In the know

    We recently completed two days of training for contractors at our base in Uckfield, East Sussex. The course covered advanced Resin Bound Training and was attended by 30 contractors, who were introduced to our new materials and installation techniques.

    “The two days were a great success,” said Tim Hopkins, Business Development Manager at Addagrip. “The aim of the training days is to help our smaller contractors to achieve larger outputs, while still achieving our high level of quality and service.”

    Among the attendees was Garden Sculpt and a team member gave some super feedback afterwards. He said: “Great course and great hospitality. I look forward to working with you guys in the future.”
