Streetscape mortars at Ebrington

Larsen Streetscape Case Study

Ebrington Square in Derry/Londonderry opened in February 2012. The site includes a new public square and multi-purpose shared spaces for culture, arts, leisure and tourism.

Larsen provided SIAC with silo-mixed bedding mortar and jointing mortars to aid installation of the paving in line with the programme.

 

 

Larsen and SIAC monitored material consumption closely and co-ordinated stock deliveries, plant maintenance and quality control checks.

The urban regeneration schemes at the Peace Bridge and Ebrington Square have achieved two Irish Planning Institute National Awards.
