Challenge

As part of a major redevelopment project of Hertfordshire University’s existing campus, around 3000m² of NatraTex Cotswold® Gravel has been supplied to provide maintenance-free footpaths across the campus.

The project, headed by Bouygues UK, brings new and exciting facilities to the university that creates an inclusive living and learning environment on a single campus. The scheme comprises new building and refurbishment works that will bring over 2500 new student bedrooms, social spaces, sports pitches and a campus gym.

The scheme is being developed over three phases following three academic years of construction and refurbishment.

Solution

Included in the development works is the surfacing of existing and new footpaths, for which NatraTex Cotswold® Gravel was chosen. The material provides a surface that contrasts with the surrounding black tarmac to form aesthetically pleasing pathways to match the modern surroundings of the university campus.

The NatraTex Cotswold® Gravel footpaths are one part of the attractive landscape created by The Landmark Practice, which felt that it was the right product for the university grounds.

NatraTex Cotswold® Gravel is one of many products that is based on tried and tested asphalt technology to offer a high performance, hardwearing surface, suitable for a busy public area such as this. The specialist material uses a clear binder system with decorative buff coloured aggregates, with the appearance of natural stone, to create a durable surface for pedestrian and light vehicular use.

Outcome

Andy Spargo, Principal Landscape Architect at The Landmark Practice commented, “We are very pleased with the aesthetics of the landscape created using Bituchem’s NatraTex Cotswold Gravel and for this reason we would definitely consider it for future projects.”
