Case Study

Project: Sizewell B Nuclear Power Station
Sizewell B Nuclear Power Station
Client: EDF Energy
Contractor: Essex Dev. & Const. Ltd.
Paver Type: Standard Flag Paving (600×600)
Area: 400m2
Resiblock Product: Resiblock Envirofix
Date: March 2013

The Site

Sizewell B Nuclear Power Station located on the East Anglia Coast was built between 1988 & 1995 and is the UK’s newest. It is capable of supplying over 2.5m homes, equivalent to the domestic needs of the counties of Suffolk & Norfolk. Around 1,000 people are employed at the station and the extended secure staff entrance incorporated new permeable paving.

The Challenge

The project consultants Parsons Brinkerhoff were concerned about aggregate joint loss from cleaning regimes and the penetration of ladies heels (potential tripping hazard).

The Solution:

Resiblock were able to resolve these issues and post a consultation phase they were incorporated into the design specification. Envirofix is a solvent free aggregate binder that will not adversely impede the water flow. In addition it will seal the paver units thus providing long-term stain protection.

The Benefits:
