Project: Yarrow Building, Hotel Road
Client: East Kent College
Project size: 1500m2
Product: Dortmund Dark Multi and Dragfaced Square Edged Blue Pavers
Design & Build Contractor: Benning Brothers 

Set on the Broadstairs campus of East Kent College, construction has now come to a close on extension works to an existing road at the college site, which was required to take place in the curtilage of a listed building.

The work was part of the £10 million project, which included the construction of a state-of-the-art hotel and hospitality training centre within the college’s Yarrow Building, providing the perfect learning environment for skills linked to event management, hospitality, travel and tourism.

The project utilised Wienerberger’s Penter Dortmund Dark Multi and Dragfaced Square Edged Blue pavers, as a clay paving product was required in lieu of concrete to give the finish and longevity the client required, in accordance with planning requirements and ensuring that the colour and design of the road complimented and maintained the character of the building.

The £300,000 Yarrow Training Hotel Road project required the installation of a high performing road extension that would enhance the overall feel of the refurbished listed building, making it the focal point of the college campus.

The road now extends beyond the hotel on campus, through to the nursery on the site, allowing for additional parking and drop off points at the college.

Nick Rudham, National Sales Manager – Paving at Wienerberger, commented:

“We are delighted to have been involved with the work on the Broadstairs campus of East Kent College."

"The heritage of the site, along with being tasked to work on a project where we were required to extend the look and feel of a listed building made this a truly exciting project. Now it’s complete, we’re extremely pleased with how our products have ensured that the colour and design of the road perfectly compliments and maintains the character of the building.”

“The overall redevelopment of the area, which included the construction of a state-of-the-art hotel and hospitality training centre is great news for the college and we’re thrilled that our work on the high performing road extension has enhanced the overall feel of the refurbished listed building, making it the focal point of the college campus."

"It truly was a great project to be involved with, and we’re very happy with the outcome of the work.”
