6/2016 – Mixing it up with block colours

In order to build a new addition to the Cariboo Chilcotin Child Development Centre, Williams Lake, British Columbia, Canada, that included the Cariboo Autism Centre in 2014, an old retaining wall needed to be torn down, moved back and replaced. The new wall colours created the maximum space required for the extra building “foot print” on the property.

Says Cindy, Administrative Assistant, Cariboo Chilcotin Child Development Centre Association: “Fred Ball, from Blocks R Us submitted a quote to the project’s General Contractor, Sprucelee Construction, which was accepted.

The quote included the use of Terracforce products that were used not only for the retaining wall but a wheelchair accessible entry into the Cariboo Autism Centre, a stand-alone, house like structure used to provide behaviour interventional services and supports to children on the Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and their families.”

Terraforce products have proven to be durable and decorative and the products have added value to the green space that surrounds both the addition and the Cariboo Autism Centre.”

Of particular interest is the wonderful use of block colours on site, with alternating 4×4 Multi Step blocks in charcoal and terracotta, and charcoal caps on the terracotta L18 rock face blocks. Please note that not all Terraforce product suppliers offer colour options, and that these will also vary from region to region. It is advised to contact your closest supplier for information on their products.
