    Resin Bound pathways for Dollman Farm Visitor Centre, Rugby

    Contractor - Resin Bonded Surfacing Ltd

    Product - 900sqm Terrabase Rustic Beach

    Addagrip approved contractor Resin Bonded Surfacing Ltd of Doncaster was appointed by Jackson Civil Engineering to install over 900m2 of Resin Bound Terrabase Rustic for the courtyard area and pathways at Dollman Farm, part of the development of the former Rugby Radio Station site in Houlton, Rugby.

    Dollman Farm is one of the properties that pre-dated the building of the old Rugby Radio Station. A working farm of 267 acres, it was purchased in the early 1920s when Rugby became the Wireless Telegraphy Commission’s final choice as the site for the construction of the new Government Imperial Wireless Station.

    As part of the redevelopment of the site, the central courtyard which consists of The Visitor Centre, The Barn and The Tuning Fork eatery, required a low maintenance, hard wearing surface that would be in keeping with the heritage of the area.  The client liked the larger stone size of Terrabase Rustic which provides a rustic aggregate finish suited to this rural environment.  Over 900m2 of 6-10mm Rustic Beach finish was installed on the courtyard and surrounding pathways to provide a seamless, low maintenance surfacing finish.

    Work was completed in time for the official opening in March 2017.
