Context

In late 2018 Westminster City Council commissioned WSP & Reardonsmith Landscape Architects to develop the design proposals for public realm improvements on Christchurch Gardens, a green space in the heart of Westminster, London.

Works on the £3.3m scheme commenced in October 2019 with extensive remodelling of the park to provide open and inviting footpaths into the gardens, new lawns, extensive planting and seating to offer a flexible open space that reflects the site’s historical background.

Requirement

Working with main contractor F M Conway, Addagrip approved contractor Street Tree was responsible for sourcing and planting large specimen trees, provision of 750 tonnes of soils, and the installation of the 475m of Terrabase Rustic resin-bound permeable paving that runs throughout the site.

Challenge

Due to the existing location of large London Plane trees along the perimeter of the garden, there was a need to avoid compromising the trees whilst still allowing site traffic access to these routes throughout the construction phase.

Solution

Porous Terrabase Rustic in a 6-10mm Oak blend was installed onto a porous asphalt with Cellweb base. This provided the required solution for the project, including site access and avoiding any compromise to the existing tree perimeter.

Outcome

The new resin bound surface provides decorative natural aggregate porous pathways with a rustic feel in keeping with this inviting green space in the heart of the city.
