QE Paving was formed by two friends, Doug Escott & Padre Quigley. Both partners had experience of block paving whilst working for Dunlop Semtex and had been to Germany for specialist training. Seeing an opportunity to develop this expertise into a business they set up QE Paving in 1978.

Block paving was new and so work was limited within the South Wales area. This resulted in contracts being won mainly in London where block paving was established furthering the expertise within QE Paving.

By the time the 80's arrived the company had grown and had established itself as a well-known and trusted company able to complete contracts within the time scale and to the highest standards, satisfying contractors and resulting in the 1 st of our many awards.

Into the 90's and the company had become one of the largest in the UK, covering southern England and all of Wales, directly complying all staff with every employee being trained to the same high standard.

Here are just a few of our well known contracts;

•  Blue Water Shopping Outlet Kent.

•  Millennium Dome London (O2 Arena).

•  Portsmouth Ferry Port.

•  Southampton Container Terminal.

•  Bristol City Centre.

•  Wales Largest Ever Paving Contract 56,000 m 2 .

•  Millennium Centre Cardiff Bay (Award Winning).

•  Assembly Offices Cardiff & Merthyr Tydfil.

•  Fishguard Ferry Port


At present QE Paving has four teams, all of whom are trained to our award winning standards. Every employee starts by working as a labourer and is progressed through the required training only if they demonstrate the potential, the appropriate attitude and work ethic.

All have CSCS Cards with NVQ level 2 and 60% of our workforce have CCNSG cards for work in locations such as power stations/chemical plants etc. We also have SMSTS site supervisor qualifications.

We can offer pricing for all types of paving, labour and plant or supply. Also we can offer pricing for all kerb and final ground prep.

Some main contractors like us to install all kerbing and then carry out the final ground prep before we undertake the paving, this ensures that the whole of the work is carried out to QE Paving's high standards which is reassuring for contractors.

QE paving do not sub-contract any work, providing QE standards at every stage of the job, standard that are industry recognised as the best and 2 nd to none.
