Case Study

University of Bristol, Fry Building

Forest Pennant paving & walling

Stunning outdoor landscape for Historic Campus

The Fry Building is a Grade II listed building in the heart of Bristol University's Clifton Campus. It has been transformed into a world-class facility for mathematics teaching and research. The refurbishment also included extensive landscaping; it had to be in keeping with the original architecture of the building and accommodate high volumes of footfall throughout the year. Forest Pennant was the ideal choice of material and we supplied paving, copings, steps & treads and random walling.

Forest Pennant was chosen as a local, natural material and the paving was laid in the form of a mathematical equation outside the entrance to the main plaza. The natural stone random walling and stone steps were in keeping with the original building. Forest Pennant's commercial paving products are highly durable and hard wearing, which can endure high levels of footfall. The landscape design provides a fitting complement to the high quality aesthetic of the renovation.
