About us


Andrew Connor founder of Connor Specialist Paving Ltd and sole innovator of the TAC-GRID Tactile MMA resin system is a well-known and respected contractor, previously working in site management for Tarmac and Aggregate Industries for several years and with over 35 years’ experience in the civils and groundworks construction industry. Working on prototypes for 10 years the final TAC-GRID design was complete in 2015.

The tooling to make the grids was designed and made using recycled plastics, the system is then installed using MMA Resin with a robust QA system also designed by Andrew. We had the support of Blackpool Borough Council who were the first to install TAC-GRID in 2015 and in the most prominent of location outside the iconic Blackpool Tower.


With the intention that all members of society should have the confidence and freedom to navigate independently around all shared spaces, Andrew developed the tactile solution to eradicate trip and slip hazards at pedestrian crossings.

We value our excellent reputation and take great pride in getting the job done to our clients’ satisfaction, within the allotted timescales and with Health and Safety at the core of everything we do.


We hold valid supervisory and site management health and safety qualifications plus RAMS and CHAS. All our personnel are trained and hold valid CSCS SMST cards and are covered by Streetworks Act qualifications. All our personnel receive comprehensive training and are accredited to install the TAC-GRID tactile system.

We are proud to be members of LCRIG and were awarded a grant from the Steve Berry Innovation Fund/LCRIG for the building of our Highways Dashboard software.
