MPG has used British Gypsum plaster  to provide a premium quality finish in a series of luxury apartments at the prestigious new build development of The Tower, One St George Wharf, Vauxhall, London.

One of the most sought after apartment buildings in central London, The Tower at Vauxhall boasts high specification properties with 360 degree views around the city. The Tower, which is owned by property developer, St George South London, is one of the company’s flagship developments.

Due to the building’s completely glazed façade, which allows continuous sunlight throughout the day, a smooth plaster solution was needed in the lounge, kitchen, bedroom and corridor areas of the apartments to avoid the casting of unflattering shadows in the intense light.

In line with the high-end specification of the apartments, British Gypsum Thistle Multi-Finish was applied as a skim coat to the British Gypsum GypWall drylining systems to achieve a smooth, hardwearing finish.

Michael Gavin, from MPG Group, said: “Thistle Multi-Finish was a joy to work with. The product gave such a smooth finish which really showed each apartment off to its full potential, and we would definitely recommend it for similar jobs. It was so easy to use and was great for touching up small areas.”

The versatile final coat plaster performs well on all suction backgrounds and is ideal for use as a skim coat on board substrates. Its workability and ease of application also make it suitable for intricate jobs, as it blends evenly with the surface to minimise imperfections.

Ross Faragher, Managing Director at St George PLC, said: “Creating a curtain wall building was ambitious and required a lot of specialist materials but we are really pleased with the finished result. Thistle Multi-Finish not only created a great finish, but also provided a high quality, durable base for interior decoration.”
