Housing development gains stunning new courtyard

Project: London Gateway, Thurrock, Essex

Seabrooke Rise is a council housing development built on the site of a disused car park, and part of Thurrock Council’s plan to build affordable new homes over the next five years.

SureSet was specified for the outside areas around the ground floor apartments, its communal courtyard, footpaths, steps and tree pit.

For the pedestrian and landscaped areas, the project included 572m² of Almond and 179m² of Golden Pearl which we laid in December 2015, an additional 537m² of Almond and 36m² of Golden Pearl in February 2016 and was completed in March 2016 with the installation of a 15m² Almond tree pit complete with our sub-base SureCell®.

The designer Bell Phillips Architects created roofs and balconies that would maximise the flow of natural light into the apartments and the external area to encourage community living. Seabrooke Rise now has a light, bright open feeling that our resin bound Almond and Golden Pearl permeable paving perfectly complements.
