    Restoration of Drake's Place, Plymouth

    Contractor:  Resin Bonded Surfacing
    Product  - 750sqm Addastone Corn Flint

    Addagrip approved contractor, Resin Bonded Surfacing of Doncaster, was pleased to be appointed to carry out the installation of 750m² of Addastone Resin Bonded Surfacing at Drake’s Place, Plymouth. This formed part of a £1.4 million restoration project made possible thanks to funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund, Big Lottery Fund and investment from Plymouth University.

    A 2-5mm Corn Flint aggregate was selected for the pathway areas, as part of the plan to improve access and restore features including fountains and the Watch House.

    Working to a tight deadline, the team took advantage of a break in the weather to install the Addastone Resin Bonded System, but first had to dry out the existing surface which was still damp from the preceding wet weather.

    Dave Tweedie of Resin Bonded Surfacing said: “We faced a challenge to get the job done on time but our team based at our Plymouth office managed to get the surface installed over a 1.5 day period.”
