IMG_5981 s[5]Hanson Formpave’s block and permeable paving has been specified by David Wilson Homes for its new £350m development, The Racecourse Newbury. 

Formpave is providing 8,000 square metres of Golden Brindle and Charcoal block paving as well as Red Brindle permeable paving incorporating its Aquaflow Sustainable Urban Drainage System (SUDS).

David Wilson Homes specified Formpave’s SUDS system to meet sustainable criteria under the Code for Sustainable Homes and BREEAM.

Commercial manager, Gary Williams, said: “We have provided paving solutions to David Wilson Homes on a range of developments and are committed to offering a solution to suit any project’s criteria.”

David Wilson Homes’ project manager, Daniel Pavely, said: “Formpave offers a large range of paving options and colours which meant they were able to provide the perfect paving to complement the new homes and the surrounding area.”

The project is a joint venture by David Wilson Homes Southern and Newbury Racecourse and is expected to take up to 10 years to complete. Regeneration of the 106 year old site will include improvements to the racing, hospitality, conference and events facilities, and provide up to 1,500 new homes.
