Technicrete Trojan Squares for Broadlands Estate Residence

Upmarket residential estates like Broadlands Estate in Polokwane require residents to ensure that any additions or refurbishments done to their properties conform to the high- existing standards. Aesthetics and finishes have to reflect the lifestyle that owners have invested in, and Technicrete paving is considered to be the leading choice when it comes to paving at the estate.

Technicrete’s Trojan paving, well known for its durability and appearance, was recently used at a Broadlands Estate residence for the driveway, house perimeter and carport areas. The home owner chose the Trojan design after looking at the quality of the Technicrete brick product that was installed at a neighbouring residence in 2016.

Andre Buitendach, Owner of Adri Projects said “The random shaped edge bevels of the Technicrete Trojan Autumn coloured 60mm square paving has given an aesthetically smart final finish to the driveway and other paved areas. We installed 1200 m2 of the Trojan squares, which we had to install in batches due to time availability of the client”.

“We appreciated the fact that Technicrete understood our predicament with delivery of product to the estate. The estate’s Body Corporate does not allow vehicles over eight tonnes on the property. Technicrete salvaged the situation by supplying all the paving we required in more lightweight delivery vehicles in a series of shuttles to and from the estate” said Buitendach.

“Technicrete’s Trojan squares and slab formations are ideally suited to residential applications as well as municipal parking areas and pedestrian walkways due to their durability and lifespan. So, we were pleased to have been contracted for further paving installation work at Broadlands Estate. The finish of the paving on this residence, and the previous five projects, is very elegant and befitting of this upmarket estate, and offers owners a long lifespan due to the innate quality of the product” said Peter Hilton, Sales Representative for Technicrete ISG in Polokwane.

Technicrete’s Keystone paving was installed at five private residences at Broadlands Estate in 2016.


Technicrete ISG is part of the Infrastructure Specialist Group which also comprises Rocla and Ocon Brick.
