QEII Hospital, Welwyn Garden City
Contractor: Graveltech Ltd
Product: 87m2 & 66m2 Addaset Rhine Gold
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.
