WHEN ONLY THE BEST WILL DO
Collaborating with some of the best names in the construction industry, Lancashire-based DCM Surfaces is working on a prestigious private development in the Ribble Valley
When it came to completing the driveways at five exclusive, new-build properties in Wiswell, Westbridge Developments turned to DCM Surfaces and their premier decorative Bound Gravel system. Renowned for its hard-wearing properties, SUDS compliant porosity and aesthetically pleasing good looks, Bound Gravel is the ideal surface for driveways, carparks and pathways.
Available in a range of colours, Bound Gravel is applied to a macadam surface using your choice of gravel aggregate, mixed onsite with a polyurethane resin and hand trowelled and screeded to a perfect finish.
Choosing Brittany Bronze as the colour to co-ordinate with the stone used in the construction of the properties in Wiswell, DCM’s Bound Gravel driveway surface reflects the premium quality build of this prestigious new development.
DCM, which is known in the industry for quality installations nationwide, uses only the best materials that are meticulously sourced from the UK and Europe. Their clients include developers, private clients, architects and contractors such as Morgan Sindall, Taylor Wimpey, Ardmore, Willmott Dixon and Redrow. They recently completed the prestigious Riverwalk in London, opposite the MI5 building, using the Bound Gravel system.
At the private, gated Wiswell development, Bound Gravel has proved to be the perfect surface of choice for these elegant country homes. David Knowles, of Westbridge Developments, says: “DCM Surfaces recently laid specialist surfaces to the drives at our development in Wiswell and they were a thoroughly efficient and well organised company – the main thing was the finished product, which was excellent.”
DCM Surfaces was established 25 years ago and deliver a range of surfaces throughout the UK. As well as Bound Gravel, DCM’s product range includes, Wet Pour safety surfacing, Rubber Mulch, Bonded and Self-Binding Gravel and Artificial Grass. They also install sport surfaces, athletics tracks, artificial football pitches and MUGAs. Closer to home, DCM provided the polymeric surface for the MUGA at Whalley playing fields.
As part of DCM’s continued drive for excellence, the company have multiple highly skilled and trained teams of installers who are able to deliver a consistent, high quality finish. Their uniforms, fleet of liveried vans and state-of-the-art equipment reflect their smart and strong work ethic, while at the DCM headquarters in Leyland, the immaculate 15,000ft warehouse (bottom right) enables them to work flexibly and deliver materials throughout the UK efficiently and on time.
Managing Director, Steve Roby says: “I believe it’s all about quality. Doing it right, setting the standard in reliability and performance, and thinking about what we do from start to finish. It’s also about being knowledgeable in our products and attentive during our installations and very importantly, being competitive. This isn’t just rhetoric – it’s a fact. It’s what I believe in and it is the benchmark to the business ethos of DCM.”
