Brighter outlook with Parex

The new MET OFFICE HPC (High Performance Computer) complex at Exeter Science Park, Devon, features high quality hard landscaped surroundings recently completed using a Parex mortar system for bedding, bonding and jointing.

Three products from the Parex BS7533-compliant Streetscape range have been combined in a system for the natural stone paving scheme at the centre which will house part of the new Met Office ‘supercomputer’.

Parex materials were specified as part of a design & build value engineering programme.

Some 1,700 square metres of external paving have been used to create a highly visual frontage to the new centre which is due to become fully operational. The Parex system was specified by main external work contractor Dancourt, of Bristol, Avon, for the scheme which features Marshall’s granite paving. Main Contractor was Wilmott Dixon South West.
