Denny Town Centre, Scotland
Project year: 2016
Posted: 10 May, 2021
supplied the external granite items to the circa £5.0m regeneration
of Denny Town Centre project for Falkirk Council. We worked closely
with our customer J W Grant to ensure that the very complex material
requirements were taken off correctly and we produced upwards of 100
separate production drawings for the granite order.
is a cleverly designed regeneration project with some very
interesting features which look good and give a nice fresh feel to
the Town Centre. There is a new sense of optimism and belief in the
area and the upgraded space is helping encourage other businesses to
locate to the town.
majority of the Chinese granite we supplied was for our popular,
medium-grained Zhang Pu OC grey colour from South-East China. The
supply included for a substantial quantity of paving, including
radial paving, which forms “eye-catching” feature circles on the
main concourse. There were also 2 separate areas of steps with
visibility inserts. The steps are mostly 350mm wide x 150mm deep and
one set are straight and one set radius. Due to the project design,
there was very little possibility of any sideways or height
adjustment on-site, so tolerances had to be very tight to ensure the
steps fitted together successfully.
of the most interesting features on the project and certainly, the
most complex are the areas of radius corduroy paving. There are over
250 pieces in 50 different sizes all interlinked and again the
tolerances needed to be perfect to allow correct fit. Other items
supplied included, silver-grey kerbs, red granite corduroy paving and
medium blue-grey granite setts.
