Tobermore Aid ‘dramatic transformation’ at University of Lincoln
Tobermore, the world class paving and walling manufacturer, have supplied a selection of fabulous Fusion block paving for the breath-taking new landscaped area at the University of Lincoln. With more than £150 million currently invested in the University of Lincoln and having the first building at the University opened by the Queen in 1996, The Times Good University Guide has described it as ‘the most dramatic transformation of a University in recent times.’
There are plans for major redevelopment at the widely respected education facility which will extend over the next decade. The amazing redevelopment plan by Allies and Morrison will benefit both the University and the city; extending access between the open campus and high street for residents. New units will cover a variety of uses, from student accommodation and academic buildings to offices, restaurants and retail buildings, plus car parking and the potential for a new hotel. The plans have the potential to accommodate up to an estimated 4,500 more students. Both Kier and Lindum Group have been involved in the construction of this redevelopment plan.
Laid by Flexi Dig Ltd, Tobermore’s beautiful Fusion block paving in Silver, Mid Grey and Graphite has been incorporated on the grounds. This sparkling colour combination has achieved a truly unique and modern look for the grounds at the widely respected education facility. Tobermore’s Fusion products create instant style and sophistication with their natural granite appearance and exposed aggregate surface, and are the ideal accompaniment to a contemporary style commercial build.
Established in 1942, Tobermore supply a wide range of block paving, paving flags, kerbing and walling products to the commercial and private markets throughout the UK and Ireland. In recent years, Tobermore have provided hard landscaping products to a vast number of schools, academies and university campuses, and the University of Lincoln is undoubtedly one of the most visually attractive projects from a landscaping perspective.
