Penzance Promenade

SLP Colourtone were contracted by Cormac to provide integral colour for a selection of areas along Penzance Promenade in Cornwall. We provided consultation for the design and finishing of the concrete and worked with the Architects at Mei-Loci to colour match to the existing promenade as well as designing a selection of bespoke colours for the new areas.

Midnight and Cornish Sand

As part of the Penzance Promenade project, we created a bespoke Cornish Sand colour to match the natural tones of the sand and stone found in the local area, it features here alongside our Midnight shade. The contrasting bands of colour form the back drop for the beautifully sculpted Barrell Pebble Seats which can be found along this stretch of the promenade.

Penzance Pink

As part of the revitalisation of Penzance Promenade, the original storm damaged pink paving slabs were replaced with a new structural concrete surface. We colour matched the original pink paving slabs to design a bespoke Penzance Pink colour for the project. The impact of the colour here is complemented  with the etched pattern and exposed aggregate finish which was created by Che Paul Concrete Design.

Footprints in Cornish Sand

As you stroll along Penzance Promenade you will notice various shallow etchings in the surface of the concrete depicting the heritage of the promenade and the local area. Against the backdrop of our bespoke Cornish Sand colour you will find an array of dancing feet designed as a reminder of the original bandstand which historically stood on the Prom.

Blackpool Sea Defences

SLP Colourtone were contracted by Birse & Blackpool Council to provide integral colour and consultation for the concrete design and finishing of the multi-million-pound renewal of the sea defences between Blackpool’s North and South Piers.  We are very proud to have been a part of the design and implementation of this flood defence scheme which won the Brunel Medal from the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) for its innovative design and construction technique.

Fylde Coast

We colour matched to the local sand and stone found along the Fylde coast to create our bespoke colour Fylde Buff, this enabled the precast and flatwork concrete elements of the design to blend seamlessly into their environment.

For the exposed aggregate concrete two different retarders were used to achieve different depths of etch, this provided contrast and made the promenade more aesthetically pleasing. All the exposed aggregate was acid etched to clean the concrete and help ensure a uniform finish. 

Cleveleys Sparkle

During the consultancy period of this project, one of the architect's remits was that some of the concrete in the precast elements should sparkle to look like the sun bouncing off the sea. We arose to the challenge and worked in collaberation with other contractors to formulate a concrete mix design and source the raw materials to provide a concrete which did just that. Our Fylde Buff and Night White integral colours were used together to provide a contrasting base for this unique sparkling concrete.

Fairhaven Sea Defence

SLP Colourtone was contracted by VolkerStevin and Moore Concrete Products to supply our integral Fylde Buff colour. We reformulated the colour to match Moore’s Concrete Products mix design which was used for the precast elements of the project.
For the exposed aggregate concrete, a surface retarder was used to achieve the required finish.

De Monfort University

SLP Colourtone were contracted by and worked closely with Aggregate Industries to achieve the desired colour and finish for this project at DeMonfort University in Leicester. We provided Aggregate Industries with the Ivory colour pigment for their Artevia range of integral coloured concrete and we also supplied the surface retarder, one of our popular finishing products.

The Hope Statue

SLP Colourtone were approached by the artist Steuart Padwick to design a bespoke colour for The Hope Sculpture in Cunigar Park, Glasgow. This sculpture is the UK’s first cement free concrete superstructure achieving a 75% reduction in CO2 and it acts as a beacon of hope for mental health awareness. We were contracted by Aggregate Industries and London Concrete to colour match and provide an integral colour to match the beach stones found along the Caithness coast.

The Dogs Trust

SLP Colourtone were happy to supply Aggregate Industries with the blue integral colour for their Artevia range to be used at the Dogs Trust wash in Darlington.  After years of remedial work, such as painting and patching, Dogs Trust were looking for a more permanent solution to colour this area, the idea was to eliminate the need for any remedial work and create a low maintenance area.
