Our team at HMS regularly support projects at English Heritage, National Trust, listed building and privately owned historic properties throughout the UK. Recent examples include ongoing maintenance at Chatsworth House in Derbyshire in collaboration with S Brown Paving, the Chantry Bridge for Wakefield Council, and an ancient monument listed viaduct in Kings Mill, Mansfield, which dates back to 1817.
Our resin bound and resin bonded paving solutions are aesthetically in keeping with historic sites, despite their formulation being derived from a very much more modern and contemporary processes and chemistry. For instance, the HMS Decra®Stone resin bonded treatment combines specialist low odour binders, finished with completely natural washed and graded aggregates, for a soft natural finish. A huge range of colours are available to blend and compliment the surrounding areas, plus the surface has increased slip resistance and increased life expectancy of the underlying surface.
With the appearance of a small-sized natural gravel surface, but with the added benefit of almost zero maintenance and stone migration, our resin bonded product is specified for use on areas open to the public and traffic as well as private renovations and restorations of historic property projects alike. The lack of loose stones also prevents trailing stones inside or to adjoining gardens, and makes an excellent consistent surface for those using mobility equipment.
Our natural aggregates are sourced from the UK, Europe and wider afield to ensure we offer the most comprehensive selection to suit any scheme. Although more modern in appearance, our Decra®Set resin bound paving can also prove useful as a discreet and porous finish to reduce problems with flooding or water without the need for invasive or unsightly drainage.
HMS resin paving systems can be seen at numerous other high profile historic and heritage sites across the UK, such as New Walk in Leicester, the National Memorial Arboretum in Alrewas, public parks, open houses, museums and green spaces.
