<< Case Studies
CRL Facades recently installed a glass fibre mesh reinforced render system, applied to interior and exterior walls to the new build ‘K2’ Crawley Leisure Centre.

Scope of Works:

  • Installation of an external wall insulation (EWI) system with a rendered finish on curved metsec walls – 400m2
  • Installation of render below DPC level – 200m2
  • Installation of a render finish on internal blockwork walls  - 1193m2

The curved walls, a feature of the main entrance, were initially constructed of steelwork and cement particle board (Metsec), before being finished using a 100mm thick insulated polystyrene board, rasped to the curvature of the building, prior to the application of a render and a final textured coating in a distinctive deep blue colour. The render system, applied to both the blockwork and the steel frame construction, continued past the curved entrance, both inside and outside the building. To provide additional physical protection at ground level an armourmat was incorporated into the render finish.

This was a technically difficult project requiring close quality control to achieve the high standards of finish. Several visits to site were required to comply with the main contractor’s program and the overall time to completion was 18 weeks.

Client:
Crawley Borough Council

Project Value:
£110,000.00
