Our high-performance products were utilised to revamp this tired and failing façade. The coming together of technology provided a professional, unique finish.
Specified by architects, Bickerdike Allen, our external wall insulation was chosen for a refurbishment at Norway Wharf in Limehouse, east London. This residential building required a new façade due to the failing existing system and the Basic 1 and Basic 4 systems were identified as being the perfect solution. The system enabled the project to remain in keeping with existing planning consent.
In total, 1200sq metres of our product was used in the scheme for the clients, Galliard Homes. The combination of the Basic 1 and Basic 4 systems allowed the architect to create interest to the building’s façade by having different textures in different areas, creating a more attractive and modern finish. We colourmatched the brick slips from a colour swatch provided by the architect and specially manufactured these for this project.
alsecco provided excellent design and technical support throughout the project and their expertise was vital when ensuring the correct insulation levels were maintained when combining the existing structure and the new façade
The combination of our FS system using Basic 1 and Basic 4 is approved by the NHBC, which was an advantage to this project, especially as the original system had failed. Working with an existing building can be challenging, but our systems are specifically designed with that in mind and ensure a professional finish.
Our Basic 1 system is a high-performance, thin coat render system, which has an excellent range of textures, colours and finishes. The Basic 4 system is conversely a thick coat render system that can be faced with brick slips as in this project or architectural ceramic tiles. Both systems are water-repellent, enable a consistent finish and have excellent weathering and durability characteristics.
