    Addastone for Art Quad at school in Horsham, West Sussex

    Contractor True Grip Ltd

    Addastone 1-3mm Autumn Gold

    Addagrip approved contractor True Grip Ltd was appointed by main contractor J T Mackley to carry out an Addastone Resin Bonded surfacing installation for one of the oldest boarding schools in England.

    Christ’s Hospital School was founded in 1552 in Newgate Street, London and provided food, clothing, lodging and an education for underprivileged children to prepare them for future careers. The school relocated to its current home in Horsham, West Sussex in 1902.

    When selecting a new surfacing system for renovation of the school’s Art Quad, the client selected a Resin Bonded Addastone finish to replicate a natural gravel appearance without the maintenance issues of loose aggregate.  1,725m2 of Addastone in a 1mm-3mm Autumn Gold aggregate was selected in keeping with the heritage of the area and school buildings.

    The newly surfaced Art Quad was reopened in October 2016 having been re-landscaped to transform the existing space into a bright and spacious area providing access to the main entrance of the Arts School and Careers Centre. Addastone creates a low maintenance, hard wearing, anti-slip, natural stone surface with decorative properties that make it perfect for heritage projects.

    Additional Addastone resin bonded pathways September 2018

    True Grip Ltd were invited back to Christ's Hospital School in September 2018 to install a further 580m2 of Addastone Resin Bonded Gravel for the main pathways. Work was completed in time for the new term.
