Charcon delivers impact in Birmingham city centre redevelopment

  • 10 Sep 2018

Charcon Hard Landscaping has successfully completed a delivery of more than 4,500 square metres of paving to the construction phase of Birmingham’s Broadway Plaza.

In excess of 3,500 square metres of Appalachian flag paving, a uniquely formulated granite aggregate, was supplied by Charcon, a division of Aggregate Industries, to provide a top-quality paving solution suitable for high volume pedestrian areas.

Supplied in Leemoor and Charcoal hues, the result was attractive hard landscaping with a strong aesthetic appeal.

1000 square metres of Charcon EcoPave Textured paving was also supplied, visually complementing the Applachian paving, whilst contributing impressive durability with 50% recycled or reclaimed materials.

To enhance the safety of the plaza, over seven tonnes of Charcon Ultrapave were supplied. The reinforced paving prevents trip hazards, offering the appearance of natural granite, ideal for urban pavements.

To complete the package, Charcon supplied over 1100 units of bespoke paving to meet the specific design and safety requirements for the project.

Broadway Plaza is a multi-million pound scheme which features restaurants, bars, cinema, shops and residential apartments.

These refurbishment works will created a refreshed and improved environment for visitors to Birmingham.
