High performance monocouche render by Saint-Gobain Weber has been used on a stylish contemporary development by Gloucester-based Cotswold Homes. The collection of five three-storey homes at Horizon, Clevedon, command views of the sea and Britain’s only Grade 1 listed pier.
Cotswold Homes bought the land with planning permission in place for the 1500 sq ft properties in Lea Grove Road, a traditional streetscape of Victorian properties. Designs were modified by Cotswold’s own management team to ensure the homes of steel frame construction gained maximum light and internal space.
Mark Pickthall of M P Plastering, Burnham-on-Sea, Bristol, carried out the work for Cotswold Homes: “The Horizon properties were designed with crisp, contemporary lines so weber.pral M in Chalk was selected to complement this minimalist style which blends perfectly with the surrounding landscape. weber.pral M is hardwearing and very low maintenance which is ideal in this area of high exposure close to the sea.”
weber.pral M is BBA approved and offers the multiple benefits of pump application and through-colour One Coat Technology which are recognised for their contribution to minimising programme works. By reducing the drying time by as much as 50%, when compared with a traditional two-coat system, on-site labour is dramatically reduced contributing to project efficiencies and faster completion.
weber.pral M, a ready mixed, cementitious render is manufactured from carefully selected raw materials at facilities in Bedfordshire, Shropshire and Ireland where quality and consistency is achieved. It requires only the addition of clean water on site and is formulated for efficient spray application over large areas by render pump. It can be used on most suitably prepared brick and blockwork and offers a variety of ways to achieve distinct, architectural features.
