CED Stone Inspiring Beautiful Landscapes

Denny Town Centre, Scotland

Project year: 2016
Posted: 10 May, 2021

CED 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.

This 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.

The 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.

One 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.
