Charcon has completed a significant delivery to the new £20 million Sybil Andrews Academy at the Moreton Hall development in Bury St Edmonds, Suffolk.

Charcon was appointed by local contractor, Barnes Construction, and consulted with architects Concertus to recommend the best hard landscaping products to support ease of movement around the school, and complement the school’s green credentials, as well as its modern design.

Over 3,500m2 of Infilta 80mm permeable block paving in Grey and Charcoal, alongside nearly 3,000m2 of Infilta specifier block paving in both Light and Silver Grey, was specified for the car park, enhancing the sustainability rating of the school.

The sustainable urban drainage system allows the ingress of surface water to pass through to a sub-base water storage system below, with its hidden 5mm spacer nibs.

Infilta is made from recycled aggregates and has more than 20 different colour and texture options. The product is part of Charcon’s Life portfolio, making sustainable specification simpler and easier.

Over 1,700m2 of Andover Textured block paving was also specified, in a range of unique grey hues for flexibility and visual appeal for the walkways and play area. In addition, over 30m2 of Europa 80mm concrete block paving in Charcoal and Grey was supplied as an aesthetic border to the car park.

The first phase of Sybil Andrews Academy was completed in November 2016, and now houses around 200 students and expects to eventually accommodate 1,400 students from forthcoming new family housing developments.

Mike Davies, Category Manager at Charcon, said the company is pleased to be supporting the town’s Vision 2031 growth plan for the area.

Mark Bailey, Division Director at Barnes said that Barnes couldn’t be happier with the outcome.
