Patio Benches

I'm installing a patio/landscape at our local library and they are having me set the new benches as well. This is the bench:


They chose this style because they match the new city benches that were recently installed nearby. The city benches, though, are bolted to concrete pads and the library wants to do the same.

I'm using Cambridge Ledgestone XL pavers. Will they be sufficient to drill into and bolt the benches, or should i pour small pads under each set of feet and lay the pavers (and possibly base material) over that and drill through the pavers to the pads?

And they have to big, deep pass that won't let the bench move when a big kid is climbing on the back.

When I did my eagle project I had to anchor the benches to the patio, the local fastenal suggested we use drop anchors and also epoxy them into the bricks as well.

If you go to any local fastenal type of store they should be able to get you what you need,

Yep, this. We did this at a hospital. Footings under the pavers & sand. Then long anchors with glue in each hole to stabilize them.
