Charcon has played a hugely substantial role in the development for the new multi-million pound Salisbury Court student accommodation scheme in Edinburgh.

The commercial hard landscaping division of Aggregate Industries were appointed by contractors McAleer & Rushe for the £27m project.

Charcon’s products feature street frontage on St Leonards Street and a private courtyard enclosed in the student accommodation area.

Approximately 1,100 square metres of StoneMaster® was supplied, providing a supreme quality paving solution which complimented the stone clad of the surrounding building nicely.

StoneMaster®, a premium precast concrete flag and block paving product, was supplied in a variety of different sizes and shades leading to an impressive design, honouring the history of the neighbourhood, as well as giving an area for students to move safely.

Mike Davies, Sector Marketing Manager at Aggregate Industries, commented on this work being a ‘rewarding project’, with meticulous planning and sensitivity to the surroundings, situated in a conservation area, required.  

“The finished look has demonstrated how with the right hard landscaping, modern architecture can sit in harmony with historic surroundings,” he said.

A revolutionary block and flag paving solution, StoneMaster® retains all the inherent beauty of indigenous stone. Made from 50% reclaimed and recycled material, this cost effective solution to natural stone replicates natural sandstone and granite.

Ideal for ease of design, StoneMaster® Flag is a fine choice for pedestrian areas with light vehicle traffic.
