Addaset resin bound surfacing has been selected to provide decorative, permeable pathways for this innovative housing development in Tonyrefail, South Wales.
Parc Eirin is a development of over 200 high quality, low carbon homes, designed with the environment in mind. The scheme uses new types of energy efficient technology including solar panels, car chargers and intelligent energy management systems.
As part of this new development, the surfacing requirement for the pathways needed to be decorative, permeable to alleviate surface water and ensure good drainage, and low maintenance to reduce the need for cleaning.
Addagrip approved contractor Thortech Ltd was appointed by main contractor Morganstone (working for Pobl and Tirion Homes) to install over 471sqm of BBA approved Addaset resin bound permeable surfacing in an Acorn blend to the walkways of the new development. In keeping with the environmental credentials of this project, the selected Addaset system has an Environmental Product Declaration certification as well as having undergone rigorous testing by the British Board of Agrement.
‘Guys from Thortech took us through the design and installation process in full and were always on hand if we had any queries. Operatives worked diligently and safely. Installed in a timely fashion and left working area clean and tidy. Happy to recommend Thortech for future works’ – Adam McCarthy, Morganstone
The installation was completed in May 2022
