Market Square, Kettering

The award for paving in 2010 has been made for the reconstruction of Market Place, Kettering.

The scheme has been designed to remove traffic from the traditional market area. The reconstruction uses local materials such as ironstone, as well as granite and York Stone paving. The lighting and fountains create an attractive area for the community to enjoy.

The Master, Tom Barton, with award judge, Mike Cottell, travelled to Kettering on 13 August 2010 to present the certificates. At the ceremony, the Master said that the Paviors Company was delighted to make awards to the client, designer and contractor for the excellent repaving of the Market Place. He congratulated all involved in this project which he considered a major success story. The scheme aims to remove traffic and create an attractive area for the people of Kettering to relax and enjoy concerts and events, and to meet their friends. Good quality materials are used in an imaginative design that adds to the enjoyment of the renovated Market Place.
