Challenge

Reading University is benefiting from a £276 million investment into the University’s student accommodation.

Surfacing was required across 2600sq.m of the Whiteknights campus to provide an aesthetically pleasing and durable pedestrian area that complemented the designs of the existing and new halls.

Solution

NatraTex Cotswold® in brown was specified by UPP, University Partnerships Programme (having been previously successfully used in a similar project at Exeter University).

The fully bonded aggregate proved a durable and robust option while ensuring the aesthetics of the development are maintained through natural looking finishes in a variety of colours.

Outcome

NatraTex Cotswold® is a form of bound gravel surfacing which has been developed using natural coloured aggregates that are fully bonded using a clear binder that ensures strength and durability, while retaining the pleasant colour of the stones. Its suitability for both pedestrian and vehicle use makes it a great surfacing choice for educational environments where the regular maintenance of buildings and facilities will require vehicle access.
