Commercial Resin Bound Gravel Surfacing Case Study

This week, our team visited Preston to complete an installation of resin bound gravel for Jaguar Land Rover. They were looking to have the surfacing installed to create a walkway around the perimeter of their car showroom.

The paving specification creates a decorative and porous finish which aids drainage and helps to prevent flooding. It’s popular for domestic driveways and commercial projects like this one. You will often find it in parks, visitor centres, outdoor attractions and many other places.

Installing the Paving

We began by mixing the chosen coloured stone with resin on-site in our mixer. The client decided to have the beige colour as they felt it would suit the design they wanted. This is a popular colour of stone which we have installed on many previous projects. It’s commonly chosen for decorative outdoor pathways and domestic drives.

Once the mixture was fully combined, we began laying it out onto the desired area around the outside of the showroom. The surfacing was laid onto a prepared sub-base, ensuring a smooth and even finish. Our installers poured the stones and resin onto the base and hand trowelled it to achieve the correct depth. They worked through the whole area a small bit at a time until the whole walkway as covered.

After this part of the process is complete, the flooring needs to be left to cure and set properly. We would advise waiting 24 hours before walking or driving vehicles over this type of surface. We also offer this product for domestic driveways, visit this post to find more driveway ideas.

Finished Commercial Resin Bound Stone

The end result at JLR in Preston was an attractive and functional walkway which the client was very happy with. See a video of the work being completed here:

They also left a reference detailing their thoughts on the project as a whole:

‘Just writing to say what a marvellous job your operative did laying the resin-bound paving at JLR Preston.

We hadn’t used this product before so were a bit nervous about ensuring it met the exacting standard that we knew JLR would require.

We shouldn’t have worried as the final result was perfect.

On our next JLR we wouldn’t hesitate to contact you again.’ – Nick Bell
