The Rock, Bury

The Rock in Bury is the only major retail scheme to launch in the UK in 2010. Situated in the centre of Bury, it is set to bring national retail and restaurant outlets to a modern 620,000 square foot development. The London office of architects BDP worked in close partnership with the manufacturer of Crystalpave to come up with the colourful paving ribbon feature that has become a trade mark of this project. A full working sample of colours was provided for the client and from this a selection of 7 different colours was chosen. The ribbon is manufactured as a paving block using Tturra resin and 85% recycled glass. The exposed glass finish adds vibrant colour and sparkle to the main paving areas.
