Marshalls supplied linear natural stone paving for Timekeepers Square, a Georgian-style development in Salford.
Timekeepers Square is named due to its proximity to a number of church clock faces and is part of the Salford Central regeneration scheme. The development comprises 36 townhouses located between the Grade 2 listed neo-classical Church of St Philip's and Salford Cathedral. A landscaped communal courtyard sits at the heart of the development, with a pedestrian boulevard leading from the church.
The two-, three- and four-bedroom properties have Georgian informed features and rooftop terraces, gardens and allocated parking.
A key requirement for the project was that it should be in keeping with the conservation area and complement the surrounding classical architecture.
Marshalls supplied its Stonespar natural stone paving in Vasanta blend for the site which included a tree lined square between the houses and the cathedral.
The plank-type paving is made from Cambrian sandstone in a blend of harmonious colours and creates a stylish effect, ideally suited to this conservation area project. It was delivered pre-blended in the crates to speed up installation and reduce space on site.
Stonespar paving is extremely strong and durable and capable of carrying occasional delivery and emergency vehicle loading. It was supplied with a blasted and brushed top surface to enhance colours and slip resistance.
The Stonespar paving was laid alongside other forms of paving to create an impressive visual effect.
The use of Marshalls' Stonespar linear paving in the development created a stylish, smart finish which complemented the surrounding architecture and helped to define the character of the area.
Stonespar is part of Marshalls' ethical commercial stone range and comes with the Fairstone logo.
