Newark Market Square
The medieval market square in Newark still holds open air markets and other public functions at least 6 days a week.
Requires frequent mechanical machine cleaning and there are all different types of delivery vehicles and traffic.
The pointing of the joints had been an ongoing concern and all types of mortar had been used and trialled unsuccessfully.
The Council identified GftK mortars from NCC Streetscape to overcome all of the problems. A C Moore Construction Ltd used the GftK mortar to grout the newly laid area of Porphyry setts. This enabled this area to be grouted up within one day (as opposed to several days with conventional materials).
The Council then instructed A C Moore Construction Ltd to regrout the whole of the previously laid market area paving, replacing any damaged setts, and overlaying the cracked and broken out areas of existing cement grout.
