    QEII Hospital, Welwyn Garden City

    Autumn 2015

    Surfacing to the pathways and courtyard areas at new hosptial in Hertfordshire.

    Contractor: Graveltech Ltd
    Product: 87m2 & 66m2  Addaset Rhine Gold

    Addagrip approved contractor Graveltech Ltd was delighted to be appointed to install Addaset resin bound surfacing to the pathways and courtyard areas at the new QEII Hospital in Welwyn Garden City.  

    The design for the £30m hospital takes inspiration from the Garden City concept with its integrated gardens and building. 

    The surfacing of the paths and courtyard areas needed to be decorative but practical in terms of maintenance, whilst providing a smooth surface for pedestrians and wheelchair users.  BBA approved Addaset Resin Bound Surfacing was selected in a Rhine Gold blend throughout the new development, including the car park area where it was used on the footpaths to differentiate from the car park spaces. 

    The porous Resin Bound Addaset was ideal for the café seating areas in the inner courtyard due to its low maintenance and around the memorial garden for its decorative properties and warmth of colour.

    The installation was completed in October 2015.
