PietraPave played a starring role in the construction of a new film studio’s leisure and tourist facilities – with the installation of 3,800m2 of PietraPave (Rosso fan detail setts and Arnhem) completed in just 90 days.
The natural stone paving was laid at Wuxi Film Studio, a new ‘movie city’ in China that features world-class film production facilities as well as an entertainment, retail and dining districts.
Installation of the high-quality, flame-finished setts, each made up of hand cut stone segments pre-fixed to a mesh base, across an area equivalent to six tennis courts, was completed in 90 days. Using an alternative paving solution would have added at least a further 30 days to the installation – substantially increasing labour costs and delaying subsequent construction works.
These cost- and time-saving qualities are what make PietraPave so appealing to major refurbishment and new build projects in the UK – delivering a wide range of long-lasting paving solutions tailored to meet the design requirements of each site and client in a fraction of the time and expense of other stone products.
