Charcon vital for visitor experience at Battle of Britain bunker

  • 24 Jul 2018

Charcon, the commercial hard landscaping division of Aggregate Industries, has helped shape the new Battle of Britain exhibition and visitor centre in Hillingdon, Greater London.

The project, part of a £6 million investment in the borough’s heritage, saw a state-of-the-art building become a brand new interactive visitor centre, telling the story of a secret plot to defeat the German airforce in the Battle of Britain.

To enhance the visitor experience at the new centre, 500 square metres of Andover Textured Paving in Silver Grey and Light Grey was specified for the hard landscaping around the perimeter of the exhibition, as well as special step units.

This incredibly durable yet stylish paving incorporates uniquely formulated Cornish aggregates, providing improved performance and visuals, ideal for high volume pedestrian areas.

Officially unveiled in late March by then Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, along with Cllr Carol Melvin, Mayor of Hillingdon, the Battle of Britain Bunker is now open to the public.

Martin Mullan, Territory Sales Manager at Charcon, commented: “We are so pleased to have been able to offer our knowledge and product proficiency to a project of national, and even international, significance.

“Charcon is delighted to be supporting the London Borough of Hillingdon by providing a positive visitor experience that will ensure the heritage of the site lives on.”
