The challenge

Millions of pounds of funding was secured to renovate a Grade II listed lido in Pontypridd. The lido, which had remained derelict since 1991, was given a new lease of life after the local authority clinched the funding required to restore it back to its former glory. As part of the scheme, the existing derelict buildings would be renovated and the Lido bathing area remodeled into three heated pools. The restoration included external covered showers, heated changing facilities and a learning and historical interpretation centre. Tarmac’s client needed a coloured product that was highly durable, easy to place and maintain, available in a range of colours and, most important of all, capable of retaining its colour and beauty.



Our solution

Tarmac’s solution was to offer the client TOPTINT COLOUR concrete due to it being as simple to lay as conventional concrete and available in an array of colours, patterns and textures. TOPTINT COLOUR contains an integral colour pigment which is UV stable meaning that the colour will not degrade from natural sunlight. Also, because a liquid pigment is used the colour is evenly mixed throughout the concrete. As TOPTINT COLOUR is integral to the mix it is a long lasting and frost-resistant solution, requiring little on-going maintenance and therefore making it a more sustainable long term solution.



Results and benefits

200m3 of TOPTINT COLOUR was supplied to this project in total - a product that was highly durable, easy to lay and came in a wide range of colours and finishes. This met all of the customer’s needs and requirements for the project.
