Solihull Borough Council invested £500,000 in the regeneration of Hurst Lane Place, located on the Chester Road in Castle Bromwich. Works were carried out by Balfour Beatty and commenced in October 2014. The area is now complete with a fabulous new landscape from Tobermore, consisting of Fusion paving in sparkling Silver, Mid Grey and Graphite, which was installed by Kelbec Civils Ltd.
The objective of the redevelopment programme at Hurst Lane Place was to make the area more convenient, improve road safety, provide additional and improved on-street parking, improve accessibility and comfort for pedestrians, enhance the appearance of the streets, and most importantly, support the economy and encourage investment in the area.
Tobermore’s Fusion paving was the perfect hard landscaping choice for the project as it creates a striking, contemporary look. Emulating traditional natural granite with its premium exposed granite aggregates, Fusion’s wide range of modular sizes and 12 vibrant colour options offer amazing versatility. The variety of sizes and colours available allow the creation of eye-catching visual effects through the clever use of laying patterns.
Fusion is an eco-friendly product as it has excellent carbon footprint ratings approved by the Carbon Trust, is B rated in the BREEAM guide and is produced with locally sourced materials. The product is also manufactured with 100% water from Tobermore’s rainwater harvesting system and renewable energy from the 250KW wind turbine and energy efficient solar panels at Tobermore’s 50 acre manufacturing plant.
