A new ‘heritage’ look for Witton Street
Paving System, Bedding Mortar, Paving Grout
Northwich’s history has been brought to life following an extensive public realm improvement scheme. All paving was grouted using Flowpoint – the renowned flowable grout from Ultrascape.
The Cheshire West and Chester Council scheme has transformed the area with traditional paving, new street furniture and public art features. It has re-introduced a more traditional feel that enhances the setting of its historic buildings. 20th century paving patterns that once characterised the street scene and re-laid porphyry setts both formed part of the new improvements.
Councillor Helen Weltman said: “We are using high quality materials that will stand the test of time and that we hope will set the quality standard for future enhancements of the town centre.”
Ultrascape Flowpoint was specified for use on the scheme due to its suitability for irregular joints and professional results that provide a construction life in excess of 40 years, as it meets and exceeds the requirements of BS 7533.
Due to the product’s rapid setting performance, paving grouted with Flowpoint can be opened to pedestrians in just 1 hour and vehicular traffic after only 4 hours, minimising disruption.
The product is suitable for almost all paving types, including yorkstone, granite and porphory which were all used on this scheme. It is fast and efficient to apply leaving a perfect, stain free finish. Ideal for wide or narrow joints, Flowpoint can accommodate widths of 5-50mm and depths of up to 200mm in a single pass. It is therefore, just as equally suited to irregular granite setts as it is to large profile stone paving.
In addition, Flowpoint is also available in ECO, offering all the regular benefits of the grout but containing 20% recycled material, significantly reducing the consumption of virgin aggregates – a must if seeking BREEAM or CEEQUAL accreditation.
