Residential Development, The Central
The Central is a new build residential development in West Hampstead. The project was built in three phases and comprises two blocks of 1, 2 & 3 bed apartments and three town houses. The buildings were constructed using timber frame construction with insulation built into the frame and required a contemporary brick finish.
As no insulation was needed, we suggested using our thinnest 17mm thick X-Clad system. We supplied over 2000m² of X-Clad with specially imported Roeben Pearl White slips, and our approved installer ML Brickwork Southern Ltd carried out the installation. The brickwork was finished with our white Europoint mortar to create a clean whitewash effect.
During installation, there was very limited space for storing materials on site, so we supplied the cladding in staged instalments as required by the contractor.
The buildings have an overall mixed exterior finish, which has created a bright, distinctive and striking contemporary look.
