GeoPave Resin Bound Case Study - Chelsea Royal Hospital
The Royal Hospital is located in the Chelsea district of central London, now the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. The hospital was commissioned and founded in 1682 by King Charles II for soldiers who were unfit for further duty due to injury or old age. The picturesque building was designed by Sir Christopher Wren, his inspiration was the “Hôpital des Invalides” in Paris. It has become the home of the Chelsea Pensioners, veterans of war and is a monumental part of London. The historical building is as breathtaking today as it was on its completion in 1682.
Figure Court, one of the oldest and renowned areas of the Royal Hospital takes its name from the golden statue of King Charles II being located at its heart. This prestigious area required a new surface that would enhance the elegant backdrop, have low maintenance requirements and be suitable for disabled access. The pensioners found the existing gravel footpaths difficult to negotiate.
To give a visually pleasing and durable surface, Cirencester Civil Engineering recommended using GeoPave; a resin bound aggregate surfacing system manufactured by Adbruf. GeoPave is a two part polyurethane hybrid resin binder system which was combined with a blend of selected aggregates and installed to give a highly attractive, smooth finish. GeoPave is environmentally friendly and is ideal for wheelchair access, a requirement of Norland Managed Services.
