LIDL HEAD OFFICE

Resin Bound Surface
Supermarket chain LIDL required a SUDs compliant surface to improve the visual appearance of their head office

The LIDL supermarket chain’s corporate offices were in need of a new surface to surround the exteriorThe extensive project included mixing traditional concrete sections with Resin Bound providing interesting contrast.

TvHE CHALLENGE

LIDL Head Office mixed traditional concrete sections with resin bound to create distinct areas and visual breaks. These were installed early and meant that DekorGrip was installed being installed around existing architecture. The project also required quick project installation to ensure walkways were kept closed for the minimum time possible.

PROJECT GOALS

  • Compliment surrounding architecture and improve the visual appearance
  • A permeable surface that is SUDs compliant
  • Minimise road closure

THE REQUIREMENTS

Both the client and landscape architect decided that DekorGrip Resin Bound surfacing would be the preferred surface. DekorGrip Resin Bound combined slip resistance, visual contrast and a hardwearing surface.  The surface is suitable for pedestrian and traffic requirements and it provided a look that complimented the surrounding architecture.

THE SOLUTION

A 6mm graded, Cornfield, DekorGrip Resin Bound surfacing system was an ideal fit for the LIDL Head Office, offering the hard wearing nature that would be required for a highly used entrance area. This would be installed through a large part of the site, at a depth of 16mm to ensure that the surface could withstand the high traffic and constant use.

With DekorGrip’s Resin Bound system chosen, Meon worked with LIDL to find a blend that suited the area. Meon gave guidance on blends and provided sample blend swatches (request your sample here).

LIDL chose a cornfield aggregate blend and Meon gave guidance and support throughout the project to overcome any challenges and ensure the contractor could deliver a great surface with minimal disruption to traffic and walkway users.
