Forticrete has been awarded a £300,000 contract by award winning builder of exclusive homes, Millgate Homes, to supply its high performance cast stone blocks in its Portland colour for the construction of Sundridge Park, a new multi-million pound development of luxury properties near Bromley in Kent. Forticrete was awarded the contract thanks to its unrivalled availability of high quality Cast Stone, coupled with its ability to produce fully bespoke items to match the architect’s vision.
Millgate's latest development will recreate the regency splendour of this prestigious location, following the refurbishment of The Coach Houses, a Grade II listed former stables building dating back to 1803 and Sundridge Park Mansion, a beautiful Grade I Listed mansion house. The new site will comprise three detached homes, 13 three-storey townhouses and 25 two and three bedroom, three-storey apartments.
Forticrete structural items including decorative window heads have also been specified to further enhance the quality, character and aesthetic appeal of the luxury homes. To ensure delivery of its Cast Stone in full and on time, Forticrete is to appoint a Contract Manager to maintain a constant line of communication with both Forticrete internally and merchant, Brickability.
Jonathan Cranley, Director at Millgate Homes, commented: "To ensure the required inspiring finish, we wanted a readily available, cost effective cast stone in a semi-dry format capable of providing a uniform, elegant finish across each of the site's luxury homes.
"Forticrete Cast Stone provides the ideal solution. Not only does it offer strength comparable to C35 concrete, but it promises a clean sharp edge to the developments' decorative components comparable with the aesthetic of Portland stone. In addition, thanks to Forticrete's superior manufacturing process, they’re able to guarantee the manufacture and delivery of a significant volume of high quality cast stone components in such a short timescale."
