Architects designing a large-scale Retirement Living Plus development for McCarthy & Stone in Poole have included a range of exterior systems from Knauf.

The Knauf ThroughWall System, Knauf AQUAPANEL Exterior Ceiling System and Knauf External Wall Insulation (EWI) Systems have been implemented across the site, which provides 60 one and two-bedroom apartments as part of an owner-occupied Retirement Living Plus (Extra Care) development.

McCarthy & Stone Technical Manager for the Horizons project, Garry Whitham, said: “The scheme was discussed with Knauf at the early conception stage and a fully detailed specification was developed, taking into account the location and exposure of the site.”

McCarthy & Stone adopted a ThroughWall Solution which comprises of Knauf Internal Plasterboard, Knauf Mineral Wool Insulation, Knauf Steel Frame System (SFS), Knauf AQUAPANEL and Knauf PIR Insulation. Designed as an infill panel system only, it allows for a range of exterior finishes.
