Addagrip Are The Brains Behind Science Park Surfacing


Addagrip’s Addastone epoxy resin has been used to provide an aesthetically pleasing external surface for the Exemplar Building, Highfields Automotive and Engineering Centre and surrounding pathways at the Highfields Science Park development in Nottingham. Nottingham Industrial Flooring Ltd (NIFL) installed 850m2 of 1-3mm Autumn Gold Addastone to the site as an attractive surfacing to complement the strong, modern design of the surrounding buildings. The project also used 250m2 of 20mm Autumn Gold Addaset to protect the tarmacadam substrate in areas of high vehicular traffic and to provide a slip-resistant surface for pedestrians along graded walkways.

The installations were carried out for Blueprint, a joint venture between the East Midlands Development Agency, The Homes and Communities Agency and Aviva Investors’ Igloo Regeneration Fund, a public and private sector partnership that specialises in regeneration projects in the East Midlands.

Commenting on the project Paul Scott from NIFL said, “The surfacing for this project needed to be a more attractive alternative to tarmacadam to complement the unusual aesthetics of the buildings. NIFL is extremely pleased with the finished result”. He continued, “After seeing the results of the Addagrip products on this private development, Nottingham City Council also specified Addaset for the University Boulevard and all pathways situated in the Nottingham Science and Technology Park situated opposite the private regeneration site.”

A total of 2,500m2 of Autumn Gold aggregate bonded using Addagrip epoxy resin was used to provide a durable, hard wearing and low maintenance surface that is also highly aesthetically pleasing.

The Addastone resin bonded system and Addaset resin bound system combine a choice of natural and recycled aggregates with resin to provide a low maintenance and hard wearing surface with the soft appearance of natural stone. Both Addastone and Addaset can be used for a range of applications from gardens, domestic drives and pathways to parks, monuments and heritage sites.
