Reading-based Barton Willmore, a planning and design consultancy, has created an interactive presentation space for employees and visitors in its new Head Office using British Gypsum’s Thistle Magnetic Plaster.

Jason Silcox, managing director at Ideal M&E, the principal contractors, said: “To give Barton Willmore the space it required, we needed innovative interior design solutions that could open up the entire office as a blank canvas for creativity, rather than limiting the company to just a computer or small noticeboard. Thistle Magnetic Plaster gave the client precisely what was required.”         

The magnetic plaster, from British Gypsum’s ‘Rooms Made For You’ range, is a finish coat plaster specially designed to attract magnets. It provides a smooth, high-quality finish that blends seamlessly with other surfaces and can be decorated as standard without any loss of magnetic effect.

Darren Hopkins at H&L Ceilings said: “We were able to apply the new plaster in exactly the same way as a standard product, with no fuss or mess. This kept the time we spent plastering the rooms to a minimum, helping us to deliver the quality finish we expect from our work and meet the tight six-week timeframe required by Ideal M&E and Barton Willmore.”
