An exclusive riverside development in London, by Durkan, has been completed with the use of BAL adhesives throughout. The River Gardens at Royal Greenwich commands spectacular views over London and the Thames, with a range of one, two and three-bedroom apartments on offer.
The latest completed phase comprises 131 luxury apartments, all of which were tiled by WRS Contracts, the award-winning Essex-based tiling contractor. It fixed 600 x 300 multi finish full-body porcelain tiles on both floors and walls. As underfloor heating is used throughout the development, the floors were first levelled with BAL Rapidbase. Both floors and walls were fixed using BAL Supercover Rapidset.
The main communal area also has underfloor heating and was prepared for tiling with BAL Rapidbase. It was then tiled with three different sizes of porcelain tile from 1200 x 600 to 100 x 600 using BAL Single Part Flexible. This adhesive was also used for fixing the low level granite tiles to external walls. With this part of the River Gardens development being called Granite Apartments, this was a key part of the fixing project.
Tristan Sharp, WRS Contracts managing director, said, “With the contract being a fast track project. We needed products that offered high levels of consistency and performance. We are always comfortable using BAL products, because we know from years of experience that nothing beats them. We worked closely with Mark Dove, our local BAL area sales manager, from the very beginning of our involvement in this project. His constant support and advice was a great help in ensuring that the materials we wanted to use would be specified. Our client supported the use of the BAL products whole-heartedly and the 25 year guarantee that BAL offer has been passed on.
