Charcon has supplied approximately 3,500m2 of hard landscaping materials to the Trafalgar Place residential project in Elephant & Castle. The development has been hailed by The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson MP for its ‘design innovation and longevity.’

The project is part of a £1.5 billion regeneration scheme taking place across 28 acres of London. 

The latest development has seen an office block converted into 235 homes, in which Charcon was consulted to recommend appropriate hard landscaping materials which would establish a relationship between the green spaces of the private communal and public areas, to the adjacent buildings and edges.

Architects dRMM specified 1,840m2 of Charcon’s Andover Textured flag and block paving in a three colour blend of Midnight Grey, Silver Grey and Light Grey. The paving was laid in five different block sizes throughout the areas main tree-lined avenues.

Charcon also supplied 1,050m2 of Appalachian flag paving in Leemoor Ground. Incorporating up to 60% recycled and reclaimed materials, the paving was used for an upper private courtyard podium.

The hard landscaping experts also created a bespoke 250m2 of ‘Special’ Appalachian Leemoor for the project. Charcon’s specialists used a double process prior to sandblasting to expose a greater amount of aggregate, to produce a polished finish that created a distinctive contrast of textures within the courtyard.

100 linear metres of Natural Granite kerbs and radii in Silver Grey were used to create features throughout the development, and 240m2 of Europa block paving in Brindle was laid in the heavy-use pedestrianised areas.

Architects dRMM collaborated with landscape architect Grant Associates on planning the project, which was managed by developer Lendlease. Landscape architecture company Randle Siddeley was invited to complete the detailed landscape design.
