Safety Surfacing at youth mental health charity
The TP Group was approached by H&R Stroods Contracts Ltd to assist with surfacing works inside the £9.6 million development of the St Aubyn Centre in Colchester, Essex.
Officially opened in 2012, the centre is a child and adolescent mental health facility boasting a modern and welcoming atmosphere. Despite the fine standards of the facilities, the communal outdoor spaces were showing signs of wear after several years of use and the Essex Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust were eager to carry out a colourful revamp.
In order to cause minimum disruption to the day-to-day running of the centre, our operatives worked within set time frames as quietly as possible. Using vibrant shades of purple and turquoise, we installed Rubber Safety Surfacing throughout. Not only does this material require minimal maintenance, it also eliminates the risk of aggregates becoming loose and provides excellent shock absorbency in case of slips or falls.
Our Surfacing & Coatings team exhibited their expertise, following the curving borders provided by the existing paving. All parties involved were thrilled with the finished result.
