Have paving available for the short build program.

Allow access for maintenance machinery.

Provide a safe surface to accommodate a large student population.

The Solution

Roadstone provided 1,300m² of Milan Paving in silver granite and 300m² of Milan Paving in midnight colour.

Milan paving is a 360 x 120 x 80mm and 480 x 120 x 80mm concrete paving product which comes in a mixed bale and has a high-end granite textured finish. Milan paving gives a modern linear paved finish and suits both residential and commercial projects.

Roadstone also supplied Castlestone Setts to form architectural features on the site and midnight Verona Setts to border the Milan.

All the paving was laid on 50mm of Roadstone Paving Grit which was screed over 200mm of fully compacted Clause 804 Stone. Roadstone also supplied the Kiln Dried Silver Granite Jointing Sand for the paving and all these products were send from Roadstone’s paving plant in Gooig (Limerick).

The Result

Roadstone provided a durable textured multifunctional paved surface which ensured the landscaped area was both a robust paved surface with a functional application.

The paved areas are visually stunning whilst providing both recreational and practical areas for the Students.
