Whether it is a residential estate or a commercial park, style conformity plays an important role in the success of such developments. The choice of paving plays a role, not only for appearance purposes, but also for future maintenance planning. These were the key factors when the owner of a house in a small residential complex in Herbert Baker Street, Groenkloof, Pretoria, decided to demolish and revamp their home after 15 years.
Maxi Pave, the contractors for the owner’s house rebuild, contracted Technicrete to supply 1500m2 of Conleaf Autumn 60mm pavers and 150m2 of Bond Brick Autumn 55mm pavers for the parking and driveway areas of the refurbished property. Managing Director of Maxi Pave, Leon Veldsman said “Technicrete’s Conleaf and Bond Brick pavers are aesthetically very pleasing and the longevity of the products make them ideal for this residence. Technicrete supplied the original paving to this small complex many years ago, but after seeing the Conleaf design and colour installed at one of the residence, the owners decided to re-pave the driveways and entrances in the same manner of the other three units as well”.
The Conleaf paver introduces gentle curves into paving, creating attractive patterns, pleasing lines and durability. This block is available in all standard colours such as Autumn, Terracotta, Grey, Plum, Slate and Tan and is suitable for domestic driveways, municipal parking areas, pedestrian pavements, pathways and commercial developments. The larger 80mm thickness can be installed at petrol station forecourts, industrial and factory roads and suburban streets.
Technicrete’s Bond Brick is a traditional paver that is not only economical but durable. It is also available in various colours and thicknesses and is mainly applied to parking areas, pathways, commercial and domestic surfaces.
