We raise the standard when building you a driveway! What you see on top will look fabulous thanks to the tremendous designs we have in our range, the quality of blocks themselves, the detailing and, of course, the attention we take from design to construction.
But what you do not see is equally important – in fact, probably more so. Enormous care goes into the design, preparation and construction of the foundations for your driveway. Building it properly means that it will be able to handle surface and storm water in line with the planning regulations. Ensuring that the base and sub-base are strong enough, level enough and properly compacted to our own rigidly laid down standards means a driveway that is more stable, stronger and less prone to subsidence, even after years of use.
Every member of our team of advisers, designers and installers is dedicated to ensuring that your driveway exceeds every requirement and expectation.
The new legislation that has been introduced to tackle the issues of flooding and other environmental concerns mean you may need planning permission for some situations and types of new driveway and will always need to ensure that surface water can drain away efficiently without contributing to flood risks.
As leaders in the field, we confront this issue in two ways that each take into account the type of soil you have and the design of your drive: namely by constructing you an efficient soakaway that is big enough to cope with your surface water, even in a heavy storm, or by using our remarkable new Polock permeable blocks that, in line with SUDS, allow rainwater to pass straight into the prepared sub-surface below, reducing the risk of flooding.
