Switch to Homeowner

The University of Gloucestershire’s strategic commitment to be “centred on students” was integral to the scheme.

The striking courtyard required a combination of permeable and impermeable paving. The area of permeable paving is centred within the area of standard paving which necessitated complementary products. Ireland Albrecht Landscape Architects sought paving that was similar in style and format for both permeable and impermeable areas.

The Challenge

Permeable and impermeable paving that complement each other aesthetically.

The University of Gloucestershire’s strategic commitment to be “centred on students” was integral to the scheme.

The striking courtyard required a combination of permeable and impermeable paving. The area of permeable paving is centred within the area of standard paving which necessitated complementary products. Ireland Albrecht Landscape Architects sought paving that was similar in style and format for both permeable and impermeable areas.

The Solution

Tobermore presented complementary permeable and impermeable paving solutions.

Tobermore presented complementary products which feature sparkling granite aggregates. Natural granite alternatives; Fusion, Sienna and Hydropave Sienna were used in different colours and unit sizes to create a striking modern paving pattern.

The Pittville Campus village enhances the student experience by creating an integrated community feel. Tobermore also supplied Granite Step units as well as Country Kerb and edging which matched the rest of the hard landscaping.

"The landscaping and feel of the internal courtyards is particularly successful and when they get more established, will lift the scheme further."
