Attractive and sustainable college refurbishment

Project: Coulsdon College refurbishment
Client: Wilmot Dixon
Main contractor: Royland Ltd

Product: Texitone Eco Natural
Size: 1,900 m2


Coulsdon Sixth Form College completed a major redevelopment of their teaching facility. As part of the development, the college repaved the areas around the main building using premium Texitone ECO paving from Brett Landscaping. The inclusion of natural slate aggregate in Texitone ECO gives an attractive aesthetic – as well as excellent environmental credentials.

The College can now offer far more extensive resources to its students and its environmental impact has been assessed to BREEAM ‘Very Good’ which will ensure that it considers its long term impact on the environment.

The focus on sustainability has continued with the specification of Brett Texitone ECO paving which has minimum 65% recycled content as well as a Green Guide A rating. When combined with the BES 6001 Responsible Sourcing ‘Very good’ certification held by Brett Landscaping this adds significantly to the overall BREEAM rating of the project.

In total 1,900m2 of Brett Texitone ECO paving in Chrcoal was supplied to the project in order to provide an attractive approach to the main entrance of the college.

College Principal, David Goodlet recently said, “It has been great to see students in the new building. I have never experienced so many students spontaneously approaching me, all of them to say how much they like their new surroundings. It is still early days but students are already benefiting from using the facilities that have been purpose designed for them”.
