For the developer of this townhouse complex in Welkom, Free State, it was imperative that the access roads had to be different from the usual grey run-of-the-mill paving. For a start, the surface had to be immediately striking and attractive. It must also be practical, traffic-friendly and hard-wearing. The choice was a variety of Technicrete Concor Trojan pavers, whose random-shaped bevelled edges certainly presented a contrasting alternative to “run-of-the-mill” pavers.
Adding additional visual appeal was the inclusion of Technicrete’s newly developed small mini-Concor Trojan slab, in an autumn blend, which was used to striking effect for the main surface of the access roads and parking areas. The combination of slab, square and mini-sized pavers required special paving skills, and for this reason Technicrete advisers were on hand during much of the paving process.
In the opinion of the highly satisfied developer, the success of the project speaks for itself. All ten cluster homes in this small up-market complex have been sold.
