Trademark Paving is installing decorative concrete and paving around the new Christchurch Outpatients Building, which is part of the health precinct at St Andrew’s triangle (bordered by Tuam Street, Antigua Street, and Oxford Terrace) directly opposite Christchurch Hospital.
This commercial project calls on a range of Trademark Paving's skillsets. Our scope of works includes:
- installing two colours of exposed and honed decorative concrete for trafficable public footpaths, seismic building skirts, and a 150m² forecourt plaza
- installing basalt and granite paving stones on a rigid mortar base (about 285m²)
- installing honed large format concrete pavers to form a public footpath (about 87m²)
- supplying and installing more than 200 lineal metres of metal retaining edge angle iron.
The paving is designed to flow seamlessly from adjacent and nearby sites, which Trademark Paving is also working on. The same materials and colours are being used across three projects.
To help the designers decide what finish they wanted on the decorative concrete, Trademark created a series of 1.5 x 1.5m² sample panels with different surfaces including brushed, sponge, honed (50 grit), exposed, roller, and coving trowel. The designers inspected the samples and then Fulton Hogan conducted a pendulum slip-test to measure the slip resistance of the selected honed surface to confirm that the finish would be safe for public use.
To date, Trademark Paving has installed exposed decorative concrete, 150 x 150 x 80 granite setts, and 150 x 300 x 80 basalt paving blocks.
