Permeable Paving: Click here to view our range

Permeable paving is an eco-friendly, sustainable and durable solution for protecting your commercial area from flooding or pooling water, by providing a sustainable water drainage system. Our permeable paving allows water to soak through the surface, releasing it into the ground. In recent years, poor water management has led to flooding of businesses, which can now be avoided.

Our Brett concrete permeable paving has been designed to achieve a high permeability, while enhancing the structural integrity of the surface. With modular paving blocks and an interlocking spacer nib, there is the correct joint spacing for efficient water flow. This works for projects big or small. Our three sustainable permeable paving collections have a range of integrated accessories and products, including kerbs, chippings and circles.

For specialised solutions when it comes to kerb applications, our range of Trief and Kassel kerbs are a major advance in road safety and public transport access. Kassel kerbs offer a solution for bus docking, providing a reduced gap between the pavement and bus platform. Creating a safer and easier environment for public transport access, Kassel kerbs can provide wheelchair and pushchair access, and are British standard compliant.

With 160mm and 180mm standard Kassel kerbs available, alongside a new slimline 140mm offering, the profile of the kerb can minimise tyre wear. There is also a slimline version, providing a retro-fit application for integrating the product into existing kerb configurations to minimise time and cost. Our Kassel Diamond paving provides an additional option for LED ground lighting to be installed for enhanced bus stop safety.

Introducing Invicta Block Paving, the brand-new innovative product Brett Landcaping

April 2022

While certain landscaping trends may come and go, one certainty is that longevity and performance will always be valued highly within the commercial sector. Block paving products that can pair these functional attributes with a unique aesthetic are not common, yet Brett’s Invicta Block Paving Range has managed just that for a variety of commercial applications.
High Performance Functionality

As well as seeking the right aesthetic and design, specifiers require hard-wearing functionality that will be geared for the future; particularly concerning streetscapes and other urban environments. Brett’s Invicta Block Paving features a pioneering AggTech surface layer to create a high-performance product, suitable for pedestrian and commercial traffic. Using a combination of specially sourced aggregates, the unique AggTech surface layer is as durable as it is attractive, being perfect for various commercial applications.

Versatility and Scope

Premium quality block paving that can accommodate a range of different sizes will always be highly sought after, offering increased scope for different commercial developments. Versatility is a particularly important factor when considering the design of more ambitious projects, including those in retail spaces, plazas, tech parks or other innovative commercial landscapes.

Along with asymmetrical designs becoming more prevalent in forward thinking commercial sectors, it helps to have added flexibility with your hard materials. Invicta Block Paving products offer a range of new plan sizes, empowering architects to meet a wider scope of requirements – especially amongst diverse streetscapes.
A Unique Aesthetic

Of course, it goes without saying that specifiers want to choose paving products that not only have first-class performance, but also first-class aesthetics. No matter their specific field, specifiers and architects alike want to build urban environments that will uplift people and stand the test of time, leaving a lasting legacy for their work. Although many urban designs continue to be influenced by clean, minimalistic motifs, it is still worth considering special materials that have a unique design aesthetic amongst the sea of grey.

For example, the premium aggregate composition found in Brett’s AggTech gives paving a unique and contemporary finish, with a subtle sparkle that distinguishes it from other concrete block paving products. Complimenting this, the gentler wash process used on Invicta Block Paving exposes the aggregate in a softer way, allowing the natural materials to really shine through, while also remaining colour fastness. The colour composition of the paving itself is still bold and distinctive though, thanks to its higher pigment ratio and premium aggregates. Altogether, these qualities offer exciting opportunities to accentuate certain design features of an installation.

Sustainability

As well as the qualities mentioned above, another future consideration for block paving is the ability to accommodate sustainable drainage systems, with urban flooding still being a significant issue that demands attention. Permeable paving has increasingly been lauded as a cost-effective method of attenuating and filtering surface water, and is available amongst various Brett paving products. The Invicta Block Paving Range also includes a permeable solution, with the Invicta Flow option; this features a unique nib design for even more efficient, sustainable drainage.

For architects and specifiers looking to create vibrant outdoor spaces that will inspire people and uplift an area’s surroundings, Brett’s Invicta Paving Range will help you achieve your design aspirations. What’s more, you can do so knowing that your product has the technology and sustainability credentials to leave a real lasting legacy.

Brett Landscaping - Seasonal Winter Advice for Public Spaces

March 2022

Delivering high performance paving installations that will last the winter is a crucial part of creating spaces that offer the best for the public. With retail, leisure and office space making up most of our cities, having the right paving that combines functionality with aesthetics is the key to long-lasting commercial space that meets the demands of modern day life.

At Brett Landscaping we’re able to assist those working in the commercial sector deliver paving styles that uplift a diverse array of streetscapes and public spaces, particularly when it comes to the considerations surrounding winter weather conditions.

What to consider when designing public spaces

From colour and finish to practicalities, there are a lot of things to think about when choosing a paving product for a commercial project. Being able to provide both functionality and aesthetics can be incredibly important for a space that will be used to attract customers and footfall to a particular area.

Longevity

Paving styles for public spaces must be created with longevity in mind, particularly when it comes to the winter months. With many public spaces being used frequently and by large numbers of people and vehicles, it’s important that paving options are available to deliver added durability.

Paving installations created with this in mind may benefit from a design that’s easier to maintain in the long run, which reduces disruption to the public with less need to repair and renovate.

Practicality

Public spaces need to be highly accessible, simple to navigate and have a natural and seamless design in order for people to use the area with ease. Commercial spaces should be designed with safety in mind too, offering a high level of functionality even in wet and cold conditions.

Qualities like slip-resistance and frost-resistance should be carefully considered if public spaces are to be utilised to their full potential all year round.

Aesthetics

General appearance and aesthetics are just as important as functionality when it comes to public spaces, as any space used by the local community should be presentable and tidy. This builds a good impression of the area and ensures all who use it have a positive experience.

However, the aesthetics also refers to the colour and finish of the paving. The choice of colour can have a great impact on the finished look. Considering warming and welcoming colours, such as autumnal shades of golden yellow or orange, can work all year round for a timeless design.

Achieving a paving design that is both functional and attractive

With those attributes in mind, our Invicta paving is a strong choice for commercial applications, particularly in regards to the winter weather, with good technical attributes that don’t compromise on the aesthetics. Invicta is created using an AggTech surface layer for high performance, offering a solution that is hard wearing but attractive. This is particularly important during wet weather, allowing for a paving design that can withstand the elements. Its suitability for pedestrian and commercial traffic means it can meet a diverse range of requirements, without creating safety hazards.

The subtle sparkle of Invicta paving distinguishes it from other concrete block paving products, with a higher pigment ratio. What’s more, Invicta is available in a permeable solution in order to accommodate sustainable drainage systems for an even more efficient design throughout the year.

For an alternative choice, Lugano paving can also offer the technical performance needed for urban design projects. Designed with a varying texture and the look and feel of natural granite, Lugano comes with a high level of slip resistance to ensure its suitability for commercial areas. Having paving that is slip-resistant is of paramount importance for the winter months, when paving can typically become more slippery due to wet and cold weather. In an area where there may be high foot traffic, such as commercial spaces, being able to protect pedestrians through a suitable design of paving can make a huge difference to the overall functionality and safety.

This style also comes in a permeable paving solution, with a unique nib design and traditional paving colours of both light and dark grey.
