Myriad and Modal paving
Major work has been carried out by the Derwent Group on the Liverpool Edge Lane Retail Park. This regeneration work was something quite different to the other schemes in the city, with its vibrant mix of retailers, aspirational food and beverage brands and leisure operators as well as free parking for 1500 cars and great transport links.
As part of the regeneration project a new B&Q store relocated to the new retail park with an enlarged store including new kitchen and bathroom showrooms, aiming to give its customers an upgraded shopping experience.
The objective was to ensure that the Liverpool Shopping Park had a transformative effect on this part of the city and bring a much needed and exciting leisure and retail experience to the market.
The development of the 49,000 square foot B&Q store at Edge Lane is one of the first B&Qs in the country to feature a new layout and refreshed departments – the landscaped paved areas at the front of the store needed to match up to the exception internal standards and make a strong visual and striking impression.
Marshalls was enlisted to supply Modal and Myriad paving in a mix of grey tones and multi-sized paving units to achieve this landscape brief that the client required for the front of the store.
The project was delivered successfully, resulting in an eye-catching, striking landscaped area.
The combination of multi-sized paving units helped to create an unmissable pattern surrounding the contemporary new store, with the varied grey hues perfectly contrasting with the iconic orange of the storefront.
The combination of Modal paving and Myriad textured paving immediately gives the area a contemporary, modern feel through the use of a vibrant, modern blend.
