Guernsey college gets a resin bound makeover

resin bound transformation for college
A historic college located on the beautiful island of Guernsey has undergone a stunning resin bound transformation with the help of Permeable Driveway Solutions. Elizabeth College, a renowned institution founded in 1563 by Queen Elizabeth I, has received a modern surfacing makeover, which saw its public spaces upgraded with contemporary resin bound pathways and recreational areas that add both character and charm for both students and visitors alike. David Fitton from Permeable Driveway Solutions said: "Creating a durable and aesthetically pleasing resin bound surfacing for Elizabeth College was a rewarding experience that showcased our commitment to high quality. “We’re really happy with how paths and recreational spaces turned out - it's been transformed from outdated space into something that's both beautiful and functional. Moreover, the modern solution looks stunning on historical properties such as this one, preserving the original beauty of the site." resin path for a college in guernsey The project was part of the bigger college expansion programme and saw 127 square metres of the surface installed in Purity blend, a mix of amber colours and warm sand tones as well as silver speckles to give a dazzling colour, matching a wide range of properties. The new surface not only complements the historic buildings of the college but also offers additional benefits including water permeability, slip-resistance and low maintenance. The porous resin bound paths allow the water to drain naturally into the ground leaving the surface puddle-free. An extra layer of crushed glass also ensures the surface remains slip-resistant, making it a great solution for high-footfall areas like schools or colleges. Thanks to the way resin bound systems are installed, the surfaces are easily maintained and don’t require de-weeding, leaving the surface looking nice and tidy just like the first day installed. The materials for the project were supplied by The Resin Mill - one of the leading resin bound suppliers in the country. The Resin Mill is boasting not only outstanding customer service and next-day nationwide delivery but also the strongest resin bound UV system available. Its materials have been used for domestic and commercial projects including global fast-food chains and famous historic sites across the UK.
