UltraScape is the ‘Quay’ to success

UltraScape’s BS 7533 Mortar Paving System has been used as part of the £80 million redevelopment of Baron’s Quay in Northwich town centre.

Twenty-six acres of land adjacent to the current town centre has been developed to include a 7 screen cinema, restaurants, bars, retail units, 900 car park spaces, bicycle racks and the latest in electric car charging technology.

Broadway Malyan, the global architecture, urbanism and design practice overseeing this exciting development and main contractor Balfour Beatty, specified and used UltraScape’s BS 753 Mortar Paving System for a range of hard landscaping across Baron’s Quay.

UltraScape’s BS 7533 compliant Mortar Paving System comprises of Pro-Bed HS fine bedding mortar, Pro-Prime slurry primer and Flowpoint rapid set flowable grout.

Pro-Bed HS is a fine bedding mortar formulated to meet and exceed the strict requirements set out in the British Standard. Available in 3 sizes, 25kg, 30 tonne silos and 1 tonne bulk bags – the latter of which was used on this project – Pro-Bed HS provides you with the perfect amount of material for all project sizes.

Pre-blended for ease of use, Pro-Bed HS can be laid from 10mm – 75mm, is shrinkage compensated and can be opened to foot traffic in just 12 hours, allowing contractors to move on to the next part of the project quickly.

Formulated to provide an exceptional bond between your paving element and Pro-Bed HS, Pro-Prime slurry primer eliminates costly failures caused by general wear and tear and heavy load bearing.

Ideal for large scale projects, Flowpoint rapid set flowable grout is available in three varieties and two colours – Charcoal and Natural Grey – the second of which was used to  grout the chosen pavers across Baron’s Quay.

With an initial set after just 15 minutes and a walk on time of one hour, it is unsurprising that Flowpoint has become synonymous with fast application, cost-effective and robust jointing.

Projects incorporating BS 7533 compliant materials benefit from a reduction in failures and considerable whole life cost savings. Every product in UltraScape#s Mortar Paving System has been independently tested by an UKAS accredited laboratory to assess their performance capabilities. This method removes the uncertainty of site batched mortars and offers a minimum construction life of 40 years.
