doors to the public. London based landscape architecture practice, Macfarlane & Associates, was provided with the task of designing an attractive landscape for the £30 million facility which was designed by Penoyre & Prasad and the construction was managed by Balfour Beatty. Tobermore was on hand with a block paving solution for Macfarlane & Associates that would enhance the aesthetics of the new hospital and provide sustainability. The sourcing of suitable hard landscaping materials was a hugely important task in meeting the schemes objectives. The Tobermore South East Sales team pre-


sented Macfarlane & Associates with a variety of paving options that could comple- ment the project. Founding Principal at Macfarlane & Associates, Glen Macfarlane, noted that the contemporary granite aggre-

he stunning new Queen Elizabeth II (QEII) Hospital in Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire, has opened its

occasional vehicular overrun.” The Tobermore products also suited Marfarlane & Associates concept design for the grounds. Macfarlane & Associates additionally

Accessible eco home makes a statement in colour

After Steve Hudson was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, he and his wife Barbara searched for a wheelchair friendly property. Eventually, the couple found a rural property for demolition to make room for a new, purpose-designed home. As part of a raft of eco friendly features, Steve and Barbara specified Earthborn paints throughout. Barbara said: “The Earthborn colour palette is fabulous and it inspired us to use around 15 different shades.” Steve added: “The painters were very impressed with Earthborn’s covering power. The texture was quite a talking point with them.” Aside from the aesthetics of Earthborn paints, their formulation benefits Barbara’s health. She developed skin allergies a few years ago and wanted a paint that would not trigger them off. Earthborn paints are made without oils or acrylics, so they are virtually VOC free. That means there are none of the strong smells associated with oil based paints and they do not give off any toxic emissions, so are much better for the health of building occupants as well as the environment.
