This purpose built business park, designed around a central courtyard, was due for a refurbishment, involving significant investment in its amenity offer and environment, incorporating the construction of a new café, entrance, lighting and associated hard landscaping.
The owners were seeking to improve facilities for tenants and visitors and create a focal point in the heart of the complex.
Marshalls hard landscaping products were specified for installation around the new café area, in the car park and at the entrance to the business park. La Linia, a high quality combined concrete block and paving range featuring exposed granite aggregates created through Marshalls partnership with Stein + Design, was selected Client: Kingsmead Business Park Contractor: Lynch Project Services Products Used: La Linia Block Paving, Conservation Kerb, Textured Edging, Bella Italia Benches and Bella Italia Planters for the pedestrian areas around the café and in the car park. Ideal for contemporary civic and retail schemes, this application called for La Linia in two attractive shades of grey to create the appropriate aesthetics for the scheme, making use of the subtle textures and striking visual effects achieved with this product.
La Linia paving was complemented by the use of Conservation Textured Kerb and Textured Edgings with a similar granite look, used along pathways and demarcation zones to complement the soft landscaping. In addition, products from Marshalls Bellitalia range were selected for the outdoor seating areas, including the Demetra Precious Stone Bench with Wooden Slats, a contemporary offering which features a self levelling system for ground slopes up to 6% for a natural touch, complemented by matching Bellitalia planters.
Marshalls hard landscaping products have played an important role in revitalising the communal areas of the business park, improving aesthetics, creating attractive seating areas and contributing to improved facilities for tenants and visitors alike as part of the refurbishment plan.
