Ronacrete surfacing system used at Tedworth House
RonaDeck Resin Bound Surfacing system
RonaDeck Resin Bound Surfacing system has been laid to the paved areas surrounding Tedworth House in Tidworth, Wiltshire.
Ronacrete surfacing systems have been used on paved areas surrounding Tedworth House, an historic building now cared for by the Help for Heroes charity.
The paths were laid as part of a project to transform the Grade 2 listed house into a Personnel Recovery and Assessment Centre (PRAC) for injured service personnel.
Architect Dan Curtis of BWA Architects contacted Ronacrete to discuss the range of options available for hard landscaping the grounds.
After consultation with Ronacrete’s technical team, BWA chose RonaDeck Resin Bound Surfacing for its natural appearance, permeability and suitability for wheelchairs.
RonaDeck Resin Bound Surfacing provides a strong, durable pavement, which is particularly suitable for wheelchair traffic as wheels will not sink and get caught as they do in loose gravel paths.
The porosity of the system makes it SuDS compliant, allowing water to drain to the base and ensuring that paths are free from standing water.
Golden Harvest was selected from the RonaDeck range of natural aggregate blends, each formulated for strength and appearance.
The golden shade will not change over time because the elastic polyurethane resin does not degrade when exposed to Ultra Violet light.
The laying of the pathways took place over a two week period.
First a macadam base was laid by Contractors Byrne and King to provide a firm foundation for the resin and aggregate.
The RonaDeck Resin Bound Surfacing System was supplied as a two-component UV stable elastic polyurethane resin together with blended kiln-dried aggregates for mixing in a forced action mixer.
Surfacing Contractors Prestec mixed the resin with a drill and paddle before it was added to the aggregate blend in the high capacity forced action mixer.
The mixed material was then discharged onto the substrate, spread to level and trowel finished at a thickness of 15mm.
After completion the paving was ready for foot traffic within 4 hours.
The forces charity Help for Heroes took over the historic building, which had previously housed an officers’ mess, in February 2011.
The first group of personnel began using the centre in July 2011 and it should be operating to full capacity by September 2012.
