    Resin bound surfacing selected for communal pedestrian areas at new Berkley Homes Green Park Village development in Reading, Berkshire

    Contractor - Coatstone Ltd

    Product - 570m2 Addabound Oyster, 500m2 Addaset Scandinavian Pearl, 140m2 Addaflex-R Silver Noir

    Huntley Place, set in the beautiful landscape of Green Park Village in Reading, is a stylish collection of apartments offering an extra care support facility designed for the Over 55s.

    The apartments overlook a beautifully landscaped communal area, which will provide a safe and welcoming outdoor space giving the development a focus and a sense of community and security.

    The client was looking for a selection of low maintenance resin bound surfacing options for different areas in a grey palette that would offer porous paving to create the design and complement other elements of the landscaping.

    Addagrip approved contractor Coatstone Ltd was invited by main contractor Wooldridge Contractors on behalf of Berkeley Homes to install over 570m2 of BBA approved Addabound resin bound Oyster blend with recycled content, 500m2 of BBA approved Addaset resin bound Scandinavian Pearl blend and 140m2 of Addaflex-R Silver Noir flexible recycled rubber and aggregate bound surfacing for the external landscaping areas in the Market Square and amphitheatre section of this new development.

    With benches and brick edging already in place, Coatstone worked carefully around these fixtures installing the new resin bound seamless surface for the various sections in this organic design. The result is a decorative, hard wearing, porous paving solution which is comfortable underfoot, with good slip resistance and easy to maintain.

    In addition, the Addaflex-R recycled rubber and aggregate bound surfacing provides a flexible paving for added comfort in the amphitheatre area. 

    Despite some challenging bad weather, the surfacing was completed in October 2020.
