Paving the way for success at the Commonwealth Games

TOBERMORE, a Northern Ireland-based paving manufacturer, have supplied £350,000 of products to the Emirates Arena in Glasgow.

This venue forms one of the most versatile structures of its kind in Europe and is scheduled to play host to the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
As well as accommodating competitions, the facility will aid the development of the next generation of Scottish athletes and offers state of the art facilities for the community.
The complex hosts numerous sports halls, four outdoor five-a-side pitches and a 6500 spectator capacity.


The Emirates Arena also holds Scotland’s first indoor Velodrome.
The architecture was designed by Scottish firm, 3D Reid. Sir Robert McAlpine worked as the main contractor. Fellow Scottish construction company, Land Engineering, acted as Sub-Contractor.
Tobermore paving products were specified to provide the beautiful pristine finish around the arena. The groundworks consist of a combination of rich block paving designs including Sienna Duo in Sandstone and Graphite. The textured surface of Tobermore’s Sienna range exposes sparkling granite aggregates which provide a distinctive appearance. The paving scheme also features Tobermore’s Hydropave Sienna Duo in Silver and Graphite and Hydropave in Natural, Bracken and Charcoal. The incorporation of the Hydropave paving range ensures long term sustainability for the external landscape.
