Designed by RMA Architects, our Ecomin 300 system was the perfect choice given its excellent weathering and durability, plus its high fire resistance.
Our external wall insulation was specified for this private apartment block development by St James Homes, which is situated in Lewisham, east London. It has been designed by RMA Architects and consists of around 120 apartments over six floors.
It was the first time our Ecomin 300 system had been used by the client, but it enabled them to achieve the finish for this new build development that was required. The fire properties of this system have been rigorously tested and further tests were carried out at the BRE in relation to this project. The system offers a great degree of impact resistance, plus higher levels of reinforcement and durability. It also offers a high degree of thermal insulation thanks to its mineral wool core. This helps residents to keep their energy bills down and improves the sustainability of the apartments.
Glass balustrades create a sense of light and openness, while copper cladding and different render colours add interest to the building. The rendered brickwork walls are further enhanced with the use of coloured aluminium panels.
