UltraScape paves the way at City of Culture

UltraScape are delighted, and proud, to have been involved in the redevelopment of Coventry City Centre – the City of Culture 2021.


In preparation for the official opening of the City of Culture 2021, Coventry City Centre has undergone a huge redevelopment of public realm works.

The Challenge

Highland Edgar Driver, the architects working on this exciting redevelopment, created beautiful designs, which included multiple water features located outside the Bull Yard and within the shopping precinct.

To bring the architects vision to life, contractors Eurovia, required a bedding mortar that would make light work of installing the Portuguese Granite and Italian Porohyry paving, supplied by BBS Natural Stone, in and around the many water features.

The Solution

To install the eye-catching circular design, Eurovia used resi-bed epoxy bedding, bonding and repair mortar from paving specialists, UltraScape.

UltraScape resi-bed is a two-part high strength epoxy resin mortar and primer system, especially suitable for bedding granite setts, paving elements up to recess covers, tree grids and coping stones, as well as concrete repair for areas subject to heavy wear and tear.

Once cured, UltraScape resi-bed is entirely waterproof and chemical resistant, making it ideal for use in projects, such as this one, where water features are due to be installed. It has an exceptionally high bond strength and the ability to withstand higher flexural strain than traditional sand and cement mortars.


Coventry City Centre began its year of Culture in May 2021 much to the delight of its residents. For a whole year, Coventry will celebrate their city with events, music, dance, theatre and large-scale spectacles – all perfectly complemented with beautifully laid paving.
