The Sky Headquarters in Middlesex is a modern, dynamic building that until fairly recently was surrounded by tarmac and type 1 MOT. Neither of these products did the building justice so in January 2016 CCE were contacted to provide an alternative.
It was decided that the surrounding area for the sky offices would benefit from a smooth, porous, resin bound surface that matched the colouring of the building.
Long Rake Spar were contacted by CCE Surfacing to provide the stunning light grey aggregates that are suitable for use within resin bound surfacing.
In total 2231m² of light, bright Norwegian pearl and Lulworth was laid using Grantex natural aggregates supplied by Long Rake Spar. The resin bound paving was used on paths, ramps, walkways and building surrounds.
CCE Surfacing faced a challenge in getting the aggregates to the site as lorries aren’t allowed in front of the Sky building. Long Rake Spar had to make the delivery to a nearby rugby club which CCE Surfacing collected and moved by van to the site.
The contemporary grey perfectly complements the Sky Headquarters building and is a vast aesthetic improvement on the previous outside area. Additionally the new resin paving provides a stable and slip free surface for employees to enjoy.
