Charcon Hard Landscaping has been awarded the contract to supply Redcar and Cleveland Council with materials for the regeneration of Eston Town Square.
The palette of high-quality natural stone granite and concrete paving materials follows the Landscape Architect’s sensitive design solution, showcasing the location’s historic nature and acknowledging the significance of the existing war memorial within the overall public realm of the town.
Work started in August with the supply of 630 square metres of Charcon’s granite setts, granite paving, and Andover Washed concrete block paving.
Andover Washed concrete block paving, which contains granite aggregates, was selected to compliment the characteristics of the natural stone granite paving and contributed to an overall solution which could be delivered within the limitations of the budget.
It is produced in the UK, with locally sourced materials and contains up to 50% recycled and reclaimed aggregates.
Robert Golden, Specification Manager for Charcon, commented on the TGP Landscape Architects’ competition-winning design.
“When complete, this project will breathe a new lease of life into the Town Square in Eston and will give the existing war memorial the high quality setting it deserves,” he said.
“Work is progressing well and we look forward to its completion in time for the town’s special Remembrance Service in November to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the Great War.”
The project, which comprises part of Redcar and Cleveland Council’s multi-million pound, borough-wide ‘Area Growth Plans’, includes road-widening improvements, refurbished street furniture, new banner poles and other public realm improvements.
