The leading flooring manufacturer was asked to help out when resin-bound gravel landscaping was needed at the Universitys Stratford campus, where a £16.5 million redevelopment scheme is transforming the facilities available in the run-up to London 2012.
Flowcrete approved contractor, Phoenix Specialist Flooring Contracts Ltd, were already on site when Mansell Construction Services Limited, the main contractor for the UEL development, asked if they could provide an external surface to match existing gravel walkways.
Phoenix recommended Flowcretes Naturewalk and 1,180 square metres of the impact and abrasion resistant system consisting of natural gravel scattered over a clear resin seal were installed at the university.
Flowcrete Naturewalk reduces foot noise, and its anti-slip finish stays looking good in all weathers.
Allan Potter, Sales Manager at Phoenix Specialist Flooring, said: When the main contractor asked if we could extend the existing outdoor floor, we suggested the Flowcrete product, as it could be matched easily and was competitively priced.
The job went well and the client is very pleased with the Naturewalk surface.
Alan Dean, sales director of Flowcrete, said: Naturewalk looks superb and provides a protective coating capable of standing up to the movement of visitors, and all the general wear and tear you would expect at such a busy location.
