A new build house in Cambridgeshire required surfacing for a large driveway.

The asphalt base for resin bound paving had already been laid during the build, but the contractor they were going to use had unfortunately gone out of business.

With the base already prepared, SureSet were contracted to install the resin bound surface. There was also an ACO channel drain running along the middle of the driveway and a large, and very ugly, square manhole cover right outside the front door.

The SureSet Solution

For the square manhole directly outside the front door SureSet formed (with aluminium edging) a ring around the outside of the actual drain as well as one around the outside of the cover. This was infilled with resin bound paving leaving holes for the manhole keys, ensuring access when required.

SureSet cut channels around the perimeter of the asphalt base, alongside the ACO drain and around the water meter. This was to ensure that the resin bound surface met all edges in an aesthetically pleasing way, whilst leaving the correct depth for the SureSet to be installed.

This new Sterling driveway is the perfect finishing touch to their new house, and the colour complements the house beautifully.

The manhole cover outside the front door is hardly noticeable having been covered with SureSet while remaining accessible. A channel alongside the ACO and around the water drain in order to lay SureSet as close as possible ensures a smooth finish.

There is a SureSet solution for everything…
