Carmel Tree Surround
The Escofet Carmel Tree Surround presents a practical solution to accommodate established and newly planted trees in modern urban landscapes.
Architects Estrella Ordoñez and Enric Pericas designed the tree surround in collaboration with ONCE, the blind people's organisation, to improve access to Barcelona’s Carmel district.
Acting as an effective transition between the standard orthogonal pavement and the circular perimeter around a tree, the Escofet Carmel Tree Surround offers a number of square and circular variations to suit differing situations.
The square option consists of 2 pieces of reinforced cast stone in granite grey with an acid-etched and waterproofed finish, with 1 or 2 cast aluminium rings painted with black forge oxiron. The round option uses a circular steel frame with rings, and is recommended for use with pavements such as asphalt and concrete slabs.

Ethical Risk Index
This Radar diagram illustrates the level of ethical risk associated with a specific stone. Ethical risk is plotted against the 10 ten measures of the ERI, with each value drawn from reports produced by independent ethical auditors, engaged by Marshalls to provide non-biased and honest reporting into levels of risk in that supply chain.
Each of the 10 measure is designed to recognise different and discrete sources of ethical risk. This produces a bespoke, fit for purpose framework designed specifically for the requirements of the stone industry. The radar diagram itself also compares the Marshalls supply chain to the wider industry in that stone, giving users a working comparison of Marshalls supply chain to the industry average, in the opinion of the auditor.
