How Techo-Bloc Delivered 
Custom Designs in Trying Times

In an effort to improve the overall experience of travelers headed to and from Martha’s Vineyard, the Steamship Authority is currently undergoing a major reconstruction project. This includes the addition of two new piers for pedestrian launches, both of which need a unique hardscaping design that is both attractive to tourists and resistant to the harsh northern climate.

When Jeff Hartwell and his crew at United Stone and Site Inc. began working on the project, they didn’t anticipate the challenges they would face. But we’re proud to say that Techo-Bloc went above and beyond to offer a custom solution and exceptional support.

Inspiring Students through Innovative Hardscaping Solutions

West Island College Montreal is a private, independent high school in Canada that houses both a French school and an English school in the same innovative facility.

In early 2020, they saw an opportunity to revitalize the open-air space in the heart of their campus and turn it into a functionally-chic courtyard where students could socialize and study.

Contractor Matthew Elliott and his company Groupe North Stone were hired for this challenging renovation, and Elliott advocated for Techo-Bloc’s pavers to be used due to their character, quality, consistency and exceptional value.

Choosing Solutions for Stormwater Management in a Luxury Setting

The selection of interlocking and permeable pavements for a high-end waterfront property in a densely-populated urban area result in a distinctive look that not only meets all design requirements, but also reduces winter maintenance and life-cycle costs.

 

Incorporating Design Standards in Paving Solutions for Outdoor Spaces

The United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has offices around the country, but the location in Arlington, VA, near the nation’s capital, features the DEA’s museum and Visitors Center. The project incorporates a very specific color palette to enhance the appeal of the DEA Museum and the surrounding outdoor space. The design features a pattern requiring multiple paver lengths, so color matching and consistency was essential to its success.
