Tobermore’s Hydropave Pedesta permeable paving has been installed at the new £10 million joint Robins & Day Peugeot and Citroen Retail Group dealership that has recently opened in Chingford.
The contract was awarded to MCS Group Ltd and is the first new build scheme to accommodate these two high profile brands in one place.
Completed in November 2015, the dealership is looking fantastic. The site houses two eight-car showrooms for new vehicles, external space for 65 used cars and a brand new 13 bay workshop with MOT facilities and the latest state of the art equipment.
Solid Construction was appointed to carry out the groundworks which have been designed with a SUDS solution from Tobermore.
Tobermore’s Hydropave Pedesta permeable paving was specified by Motor Design Group to combat potential flooding issues on site.
Hydropave Pedesta is manufactured with spacers around the edges so that when installed, rainfall can infiltrate naturally into the ground via a small 6mm gap created by the spacers on each block. This feature in the design also serves to remove pollution carried on impermeable surfaces which is then flushed into the underlying pavement layers where it is filtered, trapped, and normally degrades over time.
The beauty of the product is that it is produced with the aesthetics of the standard Pedesta product equivalent, ensuring that style is not compromised.
Hydropave Pedesta in the muted colour of Charcoal was selected for the scheme, creating an understated, modern look. This hard landscape design is the perfect accompaniment to the contemporary new showrooms.
