Deepfields, Cheshire

Keim Mineral Paints Ltd

The outer walls were constructed using blockwork and then rendered using KEIM Universal Render, which is an extremely flexible render system, negating the needs for expansion joints which would look unsightly on the impressive building. The render was then painted using KEIM Soldalit which combines durability with breathability, ensuring the system will last for many years. The swimming pools ceilings were also plastered using KEIM Universal Render but the fine version for a smooth finish, and decorated with KEIM Soldalit to give a high performance finish in such a humid environment.

Fassatherm Chosen for Retirement Village

Fassa UK Ltd

The system chosen for the ground floor of a new Richmond Villages retirement complex in Aston on Trent was Fassatherm® Classic using 50mm thick EPS panels with A96, a cement based adhesive and base coat. Basecoll® was used to glue and smooth off the perimeter panels below the damp proof course. Cuts were made into the EPS insulation to make it resemble ashlar. On the first floor, KI 7, a fibre reinforced lime and cement base coat was applied direct to masonry blockwork. A coat of RX 561 rustic acrylic siloxane finish coat render was applied to the whole facade.

Rathbone Market – Phase 2 - Lignacite’s Roman Bricks are available in a range of colours, textures and finishes, offering a contemporary and flexible module for Architects and Designers.

Lignacite Ltd

Phase 2 of Canning Town’s Rathbone Market redevelopment comprises 165 homes, 12,000 sqft retail space, a community building and two public squares, one forms the centre piece and permanent home for Rathbone Market, and the other a landscaped entrance to the existing subway beneath the Newham Way. CZWG Architects chose to use Lignacite’s Roman Brick, a much tougher cladding material of polished concrete blockwork for the ground floor areas. The Roman Brick provided inherent strength and a smooth tactile surface at the point at which people would come into close contact with the building.

Rendered facades chosen by Premier Inn and Beefeater

SAS Europe Ltd

A coastal getaway and a 12-floor monolith, both from Premier Inn needed durable and low maintainance facades. See how the UK's largest Premier Inn at Gatwick Airport's North Terminal keeps guests warm with ProRend EIFS external wall insulation over blockwork. The new build timber frame Premier Inn in Weymouth chose a different solution - the coastal hotel is protected by ProWall rainscreen cladding for a durable finish in an exposed location. ProWall rainscreen cladding and ProRend EIFS acheived a great finish and durable rendered facades for two very different builds.

Fielding Meadow, Ratby

H+H UK Ltd

The 36 homes on the Cawrey Homes’ Fielding Meadow development are built to level 4 of the Code for Sustainable Homes, using a ‘fabric first’ approach, with H+H aircrete blockwork, coupled with different renewable technologies. Air Source Heat Pumps deliver hot water and heating to underfloor pipework on the ground floors and radiators on first floors. Fabric heat losses are reduced by highly insulated ground floors, 200mm wide filled wall cavities and ‘green’ (sedum) roofs. Roof fins provide passive ventilation to reduce overheating in summer, solar PV panels generate electricity and energy efficient appliances are included in every home.
