Bringing buildings back to life with Eurobrick

Housing Wed, Nov 7, 2018 9:58 AM

There are many older buildings around the UK that just need a little care and attention, and a touch of creativity, to bring them back to life.

Eurobrick has been leading the brick slip cladding sector for nearly 30 years and has extensive experience of supplying its systems to redevelopment projects that aim to rejuvenate these older properties.

Federated House on London Road in Dorking is a prime example of how a little creativity, along with the right building products, can give a run down office block a new lease of life.

Formerly a 6-storey office, planning permission was granted to change the use of the building to residential apartments. It has now been converted into a striking development with a total of 71 new one and two bedroom apartments.

The dated building was given a complete facelift with a mixed finish of Eurobrick and Trespa cladding. Approximately 550m² of our 17mm X-Clad was installed and finished with a red multi stock brick and Sandstone colour Europoint mortar.

X-Clad is an external wall insulation (EWI) brick slip cladding system that is suitable for both new build and retrofit projects and includes the option to add different thicknesses of insulation to help meet the U-Value targets of a project while maintaining a lightweight, slim profile.

With a wide variety of brick slips available, and the flexibility to use alongside other finishes, any number of traditional or contemporary finishes can be achieved.

The cladding installation was completed last year by LB&F Ltd for Skillmaster Ltd and the building is almost unrecognisable from its former design with a distinctive, contemporary new look.

Over recent years, the market for brick slips has grown significantly and there is now a large selection of slips available, from traditional characterful styles to smooth, crisp edged contemporary ones. Eurobrick’s brick slip ranges allow for most design aspirations and palettes.

Brick slip cladding is versatile and durable. It will weather and age in the same way as conventional brickwork, requiring little to no maintenance. Eurobrick’s systems are BBA certified and they also offer a 25 year product guarantee.
