    BBA approved Terrabound creates durable decorative paving for student campus in Southend

    Contractor Total Protection (GB) Ltd

    585m2 Terrabound Trent 3mm

    Addagrip approved contractor Total Protection (GB) Ltd was appointed by Phelan Construction Ltd to reconstruct a courtyard and footpaths at the University of Essex in Southend.

    The university was looking to replace areas of old resin bonded gravel surfacing which was showing signs of wear and tear and general ageing.  It was decided to remove and replace nearly 600m2 of the bonded material with BBA certified Terrabound Resin Bound surfacing to provide a hard wearing, low maintenance, decorative paving with a longer lifespan for this busy campus.

    Due to the limited access of the areas in question, logistics restricted the size of the machinery and equipment commonly used for this type of surface removal and disposal, but the challenge was overcome successfully. With the bonded surface removed and made good, the new Terrabound Resin Bound surface was installed in a 3mm Trent blend together with 53 linear metres of Movement Joint Detail.

    The Terrabound Trent blend suits the vibrant exterior of the campus buildings providing a bright and welcoming low maintenance space.

    Work was completed in July 2019.
