Science Centre Surface Systems Upgrade

GRANTEX GUYANAN BAUXITE CHOSEN FOR THE NEW WALKWAYS AT GLASGOW SCIENCE CENTRE
Glasgow Science Centre was in need of a surface systems upgrade. Addagrip’s Addastone Plus resin-bonded surfacing system was selected for the new walkways at the iconic Glasgow Science Centre. This family visitor attraction is located in the Clyde Waterfront Regeneration area on the South bank of the River Clyde in Glasgow, Scotland.

SURFACE REQUIREMENTS  

The existing pathway paving was in need of revitalisation and renewal. The client proposed a natural aggregate finish that would keep the contemporary buildings, whilst offering a resilient surface for this busy approach to the Science Centre and IMAX theatre.

The previous surface was a slabbed walkway that was removed and replaced with a well-compacted AC6 surface tar on top of an AC20 base tar ready for the resin-bonded finish.

Addagrip approved contractor Resarf Flooring Ltd was invited by Luddon Construction to install an Addastone Plus resin bonded surfacing system in Grantex’s 1-3mm Guyanan Bauxite.

The Addastone Plus scatter system offers a seamless natural aggregate finish and our selected Bauxite stone with a high PSV value to provide a high skid resistance for durability and safety.

The 600m2 installation was carried out over a period of one week and completed in September 2021.
