Clearstone resin bound – clearly ‘the business’ with Martin Joyce Limited

Meeting tight deadlines and adhering to environmental and Health and Safety regulations are crucial for groundworks contractors Martin Joyce. They needed a reliable company to take responsibility for both the quality of the finished resin bound paving and the process.

‘Clearstone Paving Limited makes the process so easy. They make sure the risk assessment happens and they talk to the client to explain the installation process. Clearstone craftsmen are very professional,’ says Martin Joyce Contracts Manager Nigel Clark. With Constructionline and SSIP accreditation, Clearstone craftsmen ensure the installation of Clearstone resin bound is as smooth as the surface itself.

‘At Woodcote School in Coulsdon there were difficult time constraints to install pathways for the start of term but Clearstone met the deadlines,’ says Nigel. Clearstone installed 273m2 of natural Birch aggregate in under three days to ensure a flying start for the children at Woodcote School.

Due to its sustainable credentials, sleek good looks and ability to create sharp angles and lush curves, resin bound is often specified on drawings for projects ranging from new build housing to schools. Its porosity means no standing water, SUDS compliancy and accessibility to a wide community: it is buggy, vehicle, pedestrian and wheelchair friendly.

Which is why Martin Joyce keep choosing Clearstone resin bound in a range of settings such as White Gates, Esher – a prestigious Berkeley Homes development of 4-bedroomed executive Edwardian style homes. Here 253m2 of resin bound in Bronze Trio enhanced these elegant state-of-the art residences whilst providing practical paving and driveways for all users.

‘We hit it off with Clearstone: it’s a good company to work with; they give us what we want!’ says Nigel Clark. Martin Joyce Limited knows that Clearstone professionals work alongside the many contractors on site so that everyone gets their work completed safely and without hassle.

‘You know you’re doing something right if the client doesn’t even notice you’re there until the job’s done!’ says Clearstone Operations Director Spencer Kennard.

‘We used Clearstone for our first resin bound installation and if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it! I would definitely recommend Clearstone to other contractors,’ says Nigel Clark, Martin Joyce Contracts Manager.
