Case Study

Regeneration of Bridgend

Forest Pennant commercial paving & copings

Transformation of town centre

Bridgend County Borough Council completed a rolling regeneration programme to renew and improve the streets and footways throughout the town centre. They wanted to achieve a more natural look, one akin to a more traditional paved area, and minimise their carbon footprint of the scheme by selecting a local stone. The team from the council visited Bixslade Stoneworks & Barnhill Quarry as part of their investigation into Pennant quarries; and felt that Forest of Dean could deliver a good, reputable product and meet the delivery schedule.

Forest Pennant Paving, Setts & Copings

We supplied 4000 sq.m of Forest Pennant commercial paving and around 1000 sq.m of Forest Pennant setts, fluted drainage channels and copings, in our mixed colour Forest Pennant sandstone. This scheme also features some of our lilac Forest Pennant sandstone in the mixed colour blend.

The paving was supplied in three gauge widths; 300mm, 450mm and 600mm in random lengths.

The Company offered a good, reputable product along with sustainable business methods, knowledge and expertise
