Aston Martin – Cribbs Causeway

In August 2016, the Dick Lovett Group opened their first Aston Martin dealership in Bristol.

Creating jobs in the local area, the 27,000 square foot showroom offers new and used Aston Martins for sale, along with a full service centre.

But what kind of external surface would complement the iconic British sports car that is preferred by HRH the Prince of Wales and 007?

Long Rake Spar were thrilled to be chosen by SureSet Permeable Paving to supply their Grantex aggregates to create the external resin bound surfacing for the new showroom, that reflects Aston Martin’s core design philosophy and craftsmanship.

SureSet were contracted in October 2015 by Square One Construction to install permeable resin bound paving to the forecourts 13 parking bays and surrounding pathway.

In July 2016, one month before opening, SureSet were on site to install 227m² of Natural Aggregate in Barley Beach.

Marking Dick Lovett’s 50th Anniversary, the showroom was officially opened in August 2016 at an event attended by over 400 Aston Martin owners and enthusiasts.

The material supplied by Long Rake ensures the natural beauty of Barley Beach resin bound paving sits in harmony with nearby setts and beautifully buff flagstones.

In July 2017 NC Architects and Dick Lovett Aston Martin won the LABC award for ‘Best Large Commercial Building’ in the West of England.
