Trophy Gates at Hampton Court Palace
There are few locations more prestigious than the Trophy Gates that stand before Hampton Court Palace, so you can imagine how excited everybody at The TP Group was when our client, CWO Construction, invited us to lay surfaces there.
It was vital that we select a colour blend in keeping with the period architecture of this Grade I listed palace and that we avoided disturbing the steady stream of visitors that flock to this historic site in their thousands each day.
With careful planning, we were able to lay 400m2 of Addagrip’s Addastone product without limiting tourist or staff access to the site. Suspended in a buff-coloured resin along with Brittany Bronze aggregates, the Resin Bound Gravel looks bright against the dark brickwork of the palace walls.
Even the notoriously hard to please Henry VIII would have been pleased, were he around to see the results. Though we’ve had no royal seal of approval, our equally eminent clients are delighted with the work.
