Retailers, Keshco Ltd, owners of a local convenience store in Broad Street, Whittlesey decided it was time to bring the ground floor exterior and shop front of the 100-year-old building up to date. The existing tired and dated exterior was given a complete facelift by replacing the shop frontage with an attractive contemporary design.
Eurobrick supplied 54sq m of its 17mm thick X-Clad system and Light Sandstone Europoint mortar. X-Clad is the ideal system for this type of project as it can be retro installed directly to existing masonry. The ribbed horizontal profile on the X-Clad panels help to align the brick slips making brick courses easy to form and speeds up the installation process. The brick slips used for this renovation project were sourced separately by the client, ensuring that the new design complemented the traditional aspects of the existing building.
When asked about the experience and thoughts on the project; Anish Keshwara, director of Keshco said that he was very pleased with the technical assistance and support provided by Eurobrick from first contact,
‘James was excellent. It was my first time using the system and he guided me through the whole process’.
The retailer has received positive feedback from customers who have complimented the new, smart store front.
