Context

Tamesis 1, a busy office building near Egham, Surrey, has a distinctive granite paved entrance that is subjected to regular heavy traffic.

The paving serves as access to the main multi-storey car park for the daily influx of commuter cars as well as a visually impressive drop-off and turning area for taxis and regular delivery vehicles in the region of 3.5 to 7.5t

A key feature of this project is the economical construction developed from a design remit restricting budget, depth of build-up and timescale yet needing to withstand relatively heavy traffic and demonstrating impeccable aesthetics.

Products supplied

The structural properties of Steintec mortar have been used to alleviate the need for a concrete road base and to reduce the depth of construction, despite the heavy traffic loading.

An asphalt (DBM) roadbase has been employed to save time and cost on this particular project. Shallow granite setts (150 x 300 x 80mm) have been used to reduce build-up depth to again save time and cost in excavation and materials.
