Crosbie Towers is a new development of apartments from AKP Construction in Troon, South Ayrshire. The hard landscaping was a critical factor in achieving the traditional style envisioned for the premises whilst also meeting essential SuDS (sustainable drainage systems) requirements. Tobermore says that it helped the contractor meet both these objectives, with its long-standing landscape designer Beth Moore providing a design service for AKP Construction.
Moore created a design consisting of Tobermore’s Tegula Trio, a block paving product with an antique appearance, and Textured Flags, a slab product with a natural, granular surface.
This was combined with Hydropave Shannon Duo, a permeable paving product, to meet the SuDS requirements on site. “The beauty of Tobermore’s permeable paving product is that these products are manufactured with the same aesthetics as the nonpermeable product equivalent so style is never compromised,” Tobermore explains.
Tobermore’s Kerbstone, with a tumbled finish, was also included to complete the traditional hard landscaping theme.www.tobermore.co.uk
