Hard Landscape and Urban Design

Guidance in this section demonstrates techniques and best practice for using precast concrete paving to create vibrant and accessible external spaces for sustainable communities.

With precast concrete paving and kerbs, distinct, modular units and designed variations in colour, texture and shape break up areas giving visual interest and a human scale not possible with monotonous, formless materials such as asphalt. They all exhibit the same slip resistance and many other characteristics, ensuring consistency, safety and accessibility for all users across the whole surface whichever combinations of products are used.

Interpave manufacturers have completely transformed precast concrete paving with a palette of designs, colours and textures offering a visual richness and huge design choice atypical of mass production – and with a quality suitable for the very best in current urban design, whether traditional or modern.
