SureSet case study: Hertford College

SureSet

SureSet Approved Installer Lockwood Landscapes Ltd put the perfect finishing touch to one of Hertford College’s oldest buildings, the Old Hall in September.

With an extensive internal refurbishment of the Old Hall complete, it was time to turn attention to the Old Buildings Quadrangle (OB Quad); a pretty communal external area.

The challenge with this project was to marry modern conveniences such as permeability, low-maintenance and durability with the traditional look of the beautiful building.

Specialising in hard and soft landscaping, and with more than 15 years’ experience designing and installing landscapes within the educational sector, Lockwood Landscapes was more than qualified to fulfil this brief.

It installed a 450m² resin bound pathway around the OB Quad; the Norwegian Pearl sitting in perfect harmony with the historic Old Hall.

Skilfully installed, this SureSet footpath delivers a durable, accessible, low-maintenance surface that, with a little care, will last as long as 25 years.

Located on Catte Street, Hertford College is part of the University of Oxford and is where the ‘first years’ live. While the history of Hertford College can be traced back to the 1280’s, the present college dates from 1874.

Project features:

  • Application: pedestrian area
  • Area: 450m²
  • Base: free draining stone with crack reduction membrane
  • Colour: 6mm Norwegian Pearl
  • Depth: 18mm
  • Edges: aluminium
  • Installed: September 2017
