Challenge

The outdoor press area of the UK’s leading lawn tennis venue was in need of renovation as it was paved with tiles that were outmoded and slippery. It had to be totally safe underfoot and it needed to look good. The search for an appropriate solution led to Clearstone, who used permeable resin-bound paving to give the zone a championship-quality makeover.

The old paving was slippery after rain and it had started to lift. Built over a suspended office ceiling, the terrace flexed due to heat expansion and contraction but the tiles didn’t. A number of tiles had loosened, shifted or cracked, causing puddles to form. The tiles were not fully vitreous and some had suffered frost damage. Where water had seeped under the surface, further cracking and blowing had occured. Several areas had become stained and discoloured.

Solution

Cornerstone Properties, property estate managers for Wimbledon, briefed Clearstone Paving to carry out a complete renovation of the terrace, steps and entrance gate using safer, more attractive and more durable materials.

Clearstone offered the client an extensive palette of natural aggregate colour mixes to choose from. They selected a particularly attractive, warm-coloured shingle called ‘Spiced Barley’. Clearstone’s technicians used this to create a seamless resin-bound surface that perfectly complements the dark green walls of the surrounding buildings. They also faced the steps with stainless steel risers and finished the treads with TrepE edging for a clean, elegant look that will not tarnish or corrode over time. The entire project was completed to deadline, and within budget.

Outcome

Dan Haymann, Director of Cornerstone Properties said: "With Clearstone Paving’s attention to detail and careful pre-contract planning, the project was successfully completed, both within time and budget, thereby minimising disruption to the area affected. The finished product has received many favourable reviews and provides a practical solution, combined with pleasing aesthetics."
