Charlton House surface elegance
Charlton House is a majestic Jacobean building in Charlton, south-east London.
Originally a residence for nobility associated with the Stuart Royal Family, it later served as a wartime hospital, a museum and library. It is now a community centre. The TP Group was asked by Volker Highways to undertake Spray Tar and Chipping resurfacing works to the 1512m2 of the entrance roadway in the Spring of 2011.
When dealing with a site of such elegance and historical significance, great care is required to ensure that works do justice to their surroundings. We laid a hot-applied K1-70 product along with 6mm Somersham aggregates in a bright colour, which beautifully complements the brickwork of the building.
The finished works have transformed the view on the approach to the property. Our client is thrilled with the overall impact that the new surface has had on the site’s aesthetic – and we are too!
