Charcon was chosen to specify block paving products for the re-development the area, which was made famous by discovery of King Richard III in 2013.
The project was part of Leicester City Council’s ongoing street rejuvenation programme, receiving funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
Due to its rich industrial heritage, the paving within Leicester’s city centre used Leicestershire granite, which provides a blend of warm reds, pinks and charcoals.
Leicester City Council was keen to replicate this colour palette throughout the area, with a series of durable colour matched block paving products.
These have been designed to offer both aesthetic value and longevity.
Charon created three bespoke products to match the existing specification and colour scheme.
In total, over 6,000 square metres of Charcon Andover Textured premium precast concrete paving was supplied in three new shades; Washed Pink Granite, Washed Heather Porphyry and Washed Tuscan Porphyry.
The bespoke products were delivered in a variety of configurations, comprising different quantities of each colour to create a unique aesthetic which complimented the feel of the area.
Charcon also supplied an additional 400 square metres of via nova in Anthracite Charcoal, a contemporary polished paving, laid in a linear format to act as a guidance strip for pedestrians.
