Aesthetic Excellence – Category 7 – BEAUTY FOR LIFE (10+ Years)
Project: Longlands Country Estate
We are privileged to have been appointed as the concrete block suppliers to this prestigious estate in Stellenbosch over 10 years ago. The pavers, having withstood an incredible amount of vehicular traffic, show absolutely no signs of degradation, hence our reason for entering the ‘Beauty for Life category.

Project: Hermanus Market Square
A number of products from C.E.L. Paving Products’ wet cast range were specified and supplied for this project. The pavers have since withstood extremely heavy traffic loads in the form of both vehicular and pedestrian foot traffic which the entire precinct has endured. The pavers, supplied and laid over 13 years ago, are still looking good. Have a look at the video to see the full entry. – https://youtu.be/lJtLCZq1oww
Project: SAPS Forensic Science Laboratory

Engineering Excellence – Category 6 – Product Innovation
This is the first time we have entered the category for product innovation and are excited to receive feedback on our Shimmerstone entry. This innovative product is based on the concept of light refracting off glass chips, in a paver!
The refraction of light is the bending of light as the light passes from air to a glass surface, making it visible to the naked eye. Shimmerstone exhibits excellent refractive qualities which allows for the paver to be visible during the day with sunlight and at night with vehicle head lights.
