Gate and gate house: Can be viewed to be a part of the boundary wall. Depending on the requirements and use of the building and hence the compound, the gate will differ in size, specification. In busy buildings with heavy vehicle traffic, an electronically opened gate will work better than a manually opened gate. Further, it is usually better to have a small pedestrian gate aside the main gate.
Drives, parkings and pavements: These are usually hard surfaces like tarmac or paving blocks. They provide access and circulation within the compound. Pavements are good for training pedestrians on what routes to follow inside the compound. This will prevent trampling of areas like landscaped lawns.
Driveway paving is quite popular in the UK. It provides a heard-wearing surface for front gardens so you can park your cars, and also improves the outside appearance of a home. People will see the driveway first as they approach, so the better your driveway the bigger the impression! (You could also enhance this further with security gates and brick walls, but that’s for another article.
When it comes to design, a concrete block building can be shaped and moulded into practically anything your architect can come up with. Concrete blocks are an extremely flexible building material and their strength means you can practically build anything you can imagine, from a single floor to multiple story homes and add all sorts of accents, including pillars, arches and more.
