Sometimes you don't feel the benefit of Design team meetings until you see the finished results. Passed this project last week that we supplied Fab-Lite brick slip chimneys to Linden Homes and could see lots of key elements that we discussed incorporated and looking good.
Blue sky in London yesterday so took the opportunity to get a few snaps of the Great Scotland Yard Hotel project we have been supplying precast brick features on.
The traditional details above and below the windows on the new facade really work well and blend perfectly with the surrounding buildings. The Main Contractor Galliard Homes used FLB Dark Multis from Mickelmersh Brick as the main facing area with Charnwood Hampshire Reds and Colliers Red Handmade for our feature brick areas. The Brick aprons below the windows and the Flat Gauged/Bullseye/Oriel arches above and around the windows were all formed using dovetail cut bricks pre-cast into concrete panels and delivered ready for installation as single piece components.
Great to be involved in such a historic landmark building being regenerated and using all our skills to create traditional looking features with modern Off-Site production methods.
More images to follow when the scaffolding is removed from the other elevations.
