Tobermore’s fabulous Fusion block paving has been specified for the new West Rhyl Green Space in North Wales which has saw the area revitalised with a new urban park and surrounding greenery.
The £1.5 million green space forms a focal point as part of the £23 million regeneration of Rhyl and acts as a multifunctional neighbourhood park, incorporating hard and soft landscaping, street furniture and lighting.
The plans were created by Capita Symonds and Brenig Construction was appointed in September 2014 by Denbighshire County Council to carry out the removal of the existing properties and brownfield site to make way for the new urban park.
Effectively, rental tenants were re-homed within the West Rhyl area and historic properties or those located within conservation areas have been transformed into family homes.
The construction was completed over a period of 26 weeks and Urban Vision was responsible for the landscape design on site which features hard landscaping from Tobermore.
A large expanse of Fusion block paving in the smaller size of 100x100x80mm has been installed on the regeneration scheme in a mixed colour pattern of Silver, Mid Grey and Graphite.
Fusion offers unique aesthetic appeal with its sparkling granite aggregate surface layer that produces a modern look similar to natural granite. The product is manufactured in a great variety of sizes and colours that offers endless design options.
Carol Evans, Manager of the West Rhyl Housing Improvement Project, is very hopeful for the future of West Rhyl following the redevelopment; “The biggest impact the plans will have will be changing people’s perception of West Rhyl. We want to see private sector development come into the area and it’s only through a radical approach that we were ever going to achieve that.”
