Mathew Haslam

Founding Director

Mathew has always looked for the materials to use in the 'macro' and advising the optimum material choice to suit function at every scale. This has been underpinned by a thorough understanding of the materials' technical properties that can fulfil their use and performance for any given project. Within the 'macro' there also has to be the 'micro' to create an artistic attraction by everyone involved. Mathew also encourages innovation, in both concept design and production, sanctioning the investment in incredible craftsmen and women and unique state-of-the-art machinery that can produce 'unseen before' treatments, embellishments and results.

Mathews mantra is “of course we can do that!”

A famous quote from Muhammed Ali: “Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.”

By way of an update as of September 2022 Mathew is pleased to announce that having served as Managing Director for 28 years, he has stepped into the role of Founding Director and appointed Alex Warren as the new Managing Director of the Hardscape Group. Having served as Operations Director for 20 years, his involvement throughout the business and broad skill set, makes him the perfect choice to lead the Group into a new era, while continuing to embody the energy and passion Mathew has instilled in every aspect of the business for decades.
