Picspave Textured and Coloured Concrete supplied to Durrell

Published Tue 08th Feb 2022

Picspave was specified for the recent paving refurbishment project adjacent to Les Augrès Manor, the 17th century manor house which sits in a site of medieval origin, within the grounds of Durrell in Jersey.

Since 1963, the Manor House has been home to the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust. The new paving featured an area of approximately 150m2 of Picspave Caesar Stone pattern imprinted concrete, which used a high strength structural concrete mix from Ronez, designed to be coloured and textured by imprinting the surface to replicate large slabs of natural stone. The coloured, durable and easily maintained surface complements the natural stone of Les Augrès Manor.

The collaboration between Jersey Zoo, Ronez, PICS, and local contractor Premier Landscape and Concrete Services, created a new area of functional and natural looking stone pathway, with a cleverly hand crafted drainage gully incorporated into the concrete surface by the local team of Picspave experts.

Picspave is a 150mm thick slab of concrete used widely to handle large traffic volumes across Zoos, Theme Parks and highly trafficked vehicle and pedestrian areas where longevity and simple maintenance are called for, and minimising the risk of trips and falls, which can be an issue with block paving or paving slabs as they move over time.
