Ahead of the Olympic Sailing Events Alpha Antique, Omega and Beta block paving were installed across the Olympic Sailing Village in Portland, Dorset to provide robust and eye-catching paving both during and after the Games.

The combination of hard-wearing functionality and rich aesthetics mean that the paving and kerbing solutions supplied by Brett Landscaping for the 2012 Games will continue to benefit residents and complement the surrounding environment for many years
to come. “Brett Landscaping has worked on many varied and exciting projects, but there are few we are a prouder of as being a supplier of paving and kerbing (Olympic venues) to the London 2012 Games,” confirms Andrew Gill, Marketing Manager at Brett Landscaping. “The benefits are two-fold: firstly, in terms of assisting vehicular and pedestrian traffic both to as well as within venues during the Games and secondly, by supporting the long-term regeneration of these areas with solutions that will remain highly useful and attractive for many years to come” he adds. “We are delighted we will always have an association with these historic Games, which brought so much joy and inspiration to so many
people across the World in 2012″.

The colour, texture and size options offered by these blocks provide a wide array of design possibilities. Concrete Block Paving also allows for integrated navigation, hazard warning and zoning information. By using variations in colour, texture and size, concrete block paving can mark parking spaces and pathways, vehicle access routes and loading zones. The range also includes integrated and complementary edging and kerbing options to achieve a consistent, high-quality finish.
