This joint venture between Peel Holdings Ltd, Artisan Holdings Ltd. and New East Manchester Regeneration consisted of 400 apartments and 5,574 sq m of commercial space. The project reaffirmed commitment to rejuvenate the eastern area of the city. Outsualtion Rail insulated render was specified by the project architect Arconia to meet NHBC's requirements for new build apartments over a a lightweight steel frame (SFS) wall system. The EWI system, complete with a moisture drainage plane, was installed over the sheathed SFS to deal with any incidental moisture that may find its way to the rear of the cladding. 60mm Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) was specified in conjunction with insulation within the SFS to achieve a 0.20 W/m2K u-value. China White and Terracotta colours in PMRB Sandpebble were used to compliment adjacent cladding and landscaping on the project. Completed 2008.

Refurbishment of this housing association block left a post-tensioned concrete frame structure. Due to the limited load capabilities of the structure a lightweight cladding solution was required. Dryvit's Outsulation external wall insulation (EWI) system was specified over a lightweight blockwork infill. The PMRB Sandpebble Fine and Custom Brick finishes in conjunction with ashlar grooving in the system and a new roof structure gave the building a well deserved face lift. Area: 1200m2. Completed 1998.
