Ultrascape products from the Instarmac Group plc have been used at the new Bristol Civil Justice Centre, a bespoke building designed to meet the needs of HMCS in delivering civil justice.
The New Civil Justice Centre has been built to a high specification taking into account sustainability and the environment both internally and externally. As a busy building it will be subject to heavy use and must withstand this without undue deterioration or excessive maintenance.
The building entrance is prominent in the street and will be one of the busiest areas. The landscape architect., Gillespies, needed to ensure they specified long term durable products to secure the external landscaping of the centre, whilst preserving and enhancing the character and appearance of the conservation area.
Gillespies, specified the Ultrascape range of products after a visit to discuss a truly environmental and sustainable approach. A demonstration with Instarmac
’s Site Support Team was arranged prior to work commencing, to show the contractors how well the range of products perform, enabling application at a 1 in 20 fall.
Products from the Ultrascape range used were EP-R9 – epoxy resin mortar
, Pro-Bed HS – fine bedding concrete (in bulk supply), Pro-Prime – cementitious slurry primer
, and Flowpoint ECO – rapid setting flowable grout containing 20% recycled glass. EP-R9 played a vital role in the development of the exterior paving. Due to its rapid strength gain, exceptional bond strength and durability it was used to secure the step units around the perimeter and protect them against vandalism. All products aided the sub-contractor, Blakedown Landscapes, to complete the 800m² of sandstone paving
