When requiring bespoke chimneys, nobody does it better than Fab-Lite. The large brick faced steel framed stacks we had supplied last year were now in place on the roof. We tried to get in to get some better shots but apparently security has been extremely tight since it was alleged Mr Clapton was looking for a London base to strum on his guitar.
The brick corbel detail worked well and great that these could be supported directly off the roof without having a chimney breast running right through the centre of the block losing valuable floor space.
With blue skies in London yesterday we took the opportunity to get a few snaps of the Great Scotland Yard Hotel project which 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 Multi's 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.
It was great to be involved in such an historic landmark building being regenerated and using all our skills to create traditional looking features with modern off-site production methods.
