Summit Landscapes – Block Paved Microsoft Plaza

Commercial Block Paving Plaza

This was a large commercial block paving job Summit Landscapes completed on behalf of Microsoft, on Station Road in Cambridge City centre. The wide, public space in the middle of a built-up area has heavy footfall from pedestrians using the area as a cut-through between buildings and people who use the benches in the open, sunny area to eat on their lunch break.

The entire plaza spanned 550m² and was block paved with 80mm Sandstone blocks in a Herringbone formation. Three trees were also installed within the area, as well as four contemporary stone ‘zig-zag’ benches.
