Wetcast Feature - Sunbury on Thames

Thursday, 12 January 2017 09:15:44 Europe/London

Sunbury on Thames

abbey artstone, wetcast

In 2014 we commenced production of Wet-cast and GRC units for a large site of almost 200 units.

The site, owned by Crest Nicholson is set amid landscaped open spaces, moments away from the majestic River Thames. Situated in Lower Sunbury, Park Avenue has a combination of stunning 2 & 3 bedroom apartments and spacious 3,4 & 5 bedroom executive homes.

It is unusual for a site of this size to use Wet-cast over Semidry as lead times are usually an issue however after some careful planning between GB Construction and our production planning team deliveries ran in sequence to site as requested.

Planners had specified feature Artstone to almost every window along with cornice and band course detailing making each house individual and aesthetically pleasing.

GRC Units (cornice and door canopies) were designed by our in-house CAD team and colour matched to suit the Artstone by our paint specialists.

The photos shown have been taken during the installation process.

To discuss current lead times please call the office on 01535 610964, the CAD team can also help with technical queries.

GRC Portico's - 7 Years on!

Thursday, 5 January 2017 10:05:46 Europe/London

GRC Portico - An alternative to pre- cast portico's

Back in 2009 we supplied a bespoke portico to a customer in Surrey, we were very happy to receive the below photo showing the portico looking as good as new 7 years on! 

If your thinking of improving the look of your house, a portico may prove a sound investment. 

Our post fix design stresses very little demand on the structures to which it is attached and is finished with a specialised paint which mimics natural stone, without a plastic effect. 

Units can be designed specifically to suit your requirements but we do have a wide range of beam and column combinations allowing a quick lead time

If your thinking of using a portico to enhance the look of your house or meet a planning specification please do call the office on 01535 610964, we look forward to hearing from you!
