We are very proud of our good customer relations and work closely with clients to provide the services they need and to meet their exact surfacing requirements on time and within budget.

Footways are a much-observed part of the urban and rural environment and must be properly constructed and well maintained to ensure they are serviceable and safe for regular use over long periods of time.

When choosing materials for path, footway and drive design it is sensible to choose the right sub-base and the most appropriate surface materials, and here our expert knowledge can be put to good use.

Sub-bases must be firm and stable to cope with heavy daily use yet they must leave pores large enough to allow good drainage. Choosing the right sub-base material is essential.

Unbound surfaces, while cheaper, can deteriorate quickly with heavy use or poor weather while users such as cyclists will generally prefer a smoother bound surface.

Smoothness, usability and weathering factors should also be evaluated in the light of appearance, durability and maintenance implications when designing and building a footpath, cycle track or driveway.

Asphalt is increasingly favoured as a footway material as the smooth surface texture avoids the tripping hazards and cracking that is a feature of modular paving units like flags and slabs, although the latter, when laid correctly and expertly, can provide many years of use.

Unbound surfaces, however, can also be durable if a well-graded and tightly compacted aggregate is used in construction and when a good drainage scheme is implemented as well.

Paths and footway come in all sorts flavours. Some have a thin layer of bitumen emulation sprayed over base layers, and a surface dressing of stone chipping can create a very stable and long-lasting facility.

Clark & Kent has the expertise and experience to implement extensive footpath schemes from design to maintenance incorporating sustainable drainage systems that ensure efficient use and a long life.
