Increasingly architects, designers and developers are bringing exciting artistic features to building exteriors. Colour and texture play a prominent role, and one of the most popular trends is to create an ‘aged industrial’ look but, importantly, one that is bright, fresh and clean.

Eurobrick were first to introduce brick slip cladding to the UK over 30 years ago and during this time have continuously strived to develop their systems and products in line with customer requirements.

Widely specified for its fire resistance and all round stability in the cladding build-up to apartment blocks as well as a render backer and sheathing board, IPP’s highly versatile Magply boards have been employed by a regional developer as a fireproof sarking board beneath traditional thatched roofing for a development in a beautiful Dorset village. .

Powdertech Corby’s eye-catching finish, Evolution™ ‘Sandstorm’, has captured exactly the right aspect for a new £24m apartment block in Liverpool’s Baltic Triangle quarter, south of the city centre.

The one activity that has seen most of us through lockdown is walking. We’ve all become more familiar with our neighbourhoods as we have wandered around the local streets on a weekly basis (daily for those who are more energetic) for almost a year.

A combination of wall and roofing membranes from Glidevale Protect has been specified and installed on a new build social housing scheme built by Countryside Properties PLC, working in partnership with the affordable housing provider, emh group.

Roofing and cladding fastening systems specialist EJOT UK has developed a new mechanical fastener solution to help installers save time and money when installing flat roofing with tapered insulation.

Back in 2012 Powdertech Corby coated hundreds of wayfinding and information signs, and car park meter surrounds, for six Anglian Water reservoirs in the midland region.
