Context

The Science Village at Chesterford Research Park underwent a programme of development to improve vehicular circulation, parking and pedestrian areas.

Neutral paving was required to be sympathetic to the landscape setting and materials were needed to define areas such as parking bays.

Solution

Davis Landscape Architecture selected a number of Marshalls’ flag and block paving products for the scheme. Director, Justin Davis, explains: “The main body of the external works associated with this development consisted of vehicular circulation, parking and pedestrian circulation. The palette of paving materials were carefully selected to ensure the landscape setting complemented that of the high quality built form."

“We were keen to select paving materials from a single supplier that produced high quality products in the range required. In addition, it was important that the palette of colours on offer were attractive, complemented each other and enhanced the building setting. Marshalls provided the range and palette we were looking for."

“Both the parking bays and vehicular running surface were paved with Marshalls Keyblok. The parking bays were Charcoal in colour and the running surface Natural. Contrasting Natural coloured paving blocks defined the edges of the individual parking bays. The footpaths surrounding the building were paved with Marshalls Saxon slab paving units and were specified in the colour Natural. This textured paving unit provided a quality, durable surface at a reasonable cost. To the two main entrances of the building a high quality finish was required. In these locations Marshalls Modal textured paving blocks were specified in the colour Grey Granite.”

Benefit

The hard landscaping complements the state-of-the-art facilities, but the carefully selected palette of materials and colours doesn’t detract from the aesthetics of the landscape.
