Tobermore Plank Paving Specified for New Hotel in Birmingham City Centre

Architect, Building Design Group, was seeking a modern exterior for the Park Regis Hotel, a deluxe new hotel located in the heart of Birmingham's City Centre, and Tobermore provided a means of achieving this with Manhattan, a linear plank paving product with a contemporary appearance.

Manhattan is manufactured with a granite aggregate surface layer that produces a sparkling look similar to natural granite. The slender product shape is unique to the Tobermore range, and produces a lengthening or widening effect to any area in which it is laid.

Building Design Group specified the product in the colours of Silver, Mid Grey, Graphite and Sandstone which have created a vibrant look.

The architect brought a subtle touch of traditional style into the landscape design with Tegula Trio, a paving product with an antique appearance, in the soft colour of Slate. Mayfair Step Flags were also incorporated into the design as the most appropriate step product to complement the surrounding paved landscape.

The hospitality scheme was managed by Colmore Tang and was completed in early 2016.
