Case Study - Chartres Labyrinth

St Andrew Church, Longton
The church had some funding to transform a  wasteland area within the Church grounds. It was  decided to use this opportunity to try and introduce  a new focal point for year round community events  and to provide an outdoor area for Sunday school.  The symbolic design of the Chartres Labyrinth was  chosen and consultation with the contractor of how  to implement within budget began. 

PietraPave was initially considered as an option  because the intricacy of the design could be met  using a natural stone. The speed of installation keeps  labour costs to a minimum something other solutions  couldn’t provide. The design process continued and  following the selection of the colours and final finish  of the stone the 6.2m diameter Labyrinth went  into production. 

On arrival to site the ground was prepared ready  to receive the PietraPave mats. The crates all  carefully labelled so the design can very easily be  reconstructed directly onto the ground. The first mat  was ceremoniously laid at 12.30pm, with the final  mat laid before 5pm the same afternoon. Over 30m²  of setts laid with tremendous accuracy to a bespoke  design in only four and a half hours. 

Following completion the revitalised area has been  welcomed by all attracting a lot of attention from the  congregation of the church and wider community,  even the local media is showing an interest. 

PietraPave has provided a complete  solution, from the early design stages on  the drawing board all the way through  to installation on the ground, something  that has been built to last.
