Addagrip approved contractor True Grip was delighted to be chosen to carry out the installation of a stunning Labyrinth at The Hospice in the Weald, a leading palliative care provider for the communities of West Kent and northern East Sussex. The Hospice in the Weald are dedicated to providing compassionate, holistic care for their patients and families and the Hospice Labyrinth supports this mission. Set in beautiful gardens overlooking neighbouring orchards, the classically designed Labyrinth is available for all to use as they wish – many people find walking the path of a labyrinth a way to find peace, calm and inner strength.
George Kelpie from Acanthus LW Architects designed the Labyrinth, with the wellbeing of the patients at the Hospice in the Weald in mind. The requirement was for decorative resin bound porous surface in two contrasting colours for a labyrinth design. The paving needed to be comfortable and safe underfoot with good slip resistance and suitable for easy access for all. Addagrip’s porous Resin Bound Addaset was selected in a 6mm Lucerne Silver blend alongside Resin Bound Addacolor in a 3mm Green.
With its classical seven circuit design the Hospice Labyrinth has one path that winds into the centre and then out again and is wide enough for wheelchairs. The Addaset and Addacolor resin bound systems provides a smooth, low maintenance surface for healthcare projects making it suitable for both pedestrian and wheelchair use.
The installation was completed in August 2014.
