County Contractors who won the landscaping development
project of the hotel redevelopment chose to use the UltraScape
Mortar Paving Products Pro-Bed HS Fine Bedding Concrete, Pro-
Prime Slurry Primer and Flowpoint Rapid Setting Flowable Grout
as they were able to step up to the demands of the hotel’s multi-million pound project, providing a range of durable, aesthetically pleasing products to help the majestic townhouse hotel achieve the superior finish it required to the front of the house driveway.
Small sections of the main 350m² driveway were closed off over
time enabling CJ Cook Surfacing Groundworks, (domestic sub
contractors) to lay the new cobbled driveway. UltraScape Pro-
Bed HS was used to bed the cobbles, as it had been specifically
formulated to meet and exceed the strict demands of BS 7533.
Pro-Prime was used in conjuction with Pro-Bed HS to provide a
more durable bond between the stones’ surface and the bedding
mortar promoting an adhesion of greater than 2N/mm².
Flowpoint was used for the joint throughout the driveway.
Flowpoint again is formulated to meet demands of BS 7533 for
rigid construction where a fl uid consistency and early traffi cking
are essential. It is able to reach a bond strength of >1.5N/mm2 and
compressive strength of 49.6N/mm² which exceed the
requirements of BS 7533. It can be opened to foot traffi c within 1
hour and vehicular traffic in 4 hours.
With the help of UltraScape, the Marriottt Hotel has achieved
modern elegance externally as well as internally. Contractors & the
hotel management are extremely pleased with the performance of
the products, with all areas completed on time with durability and
