Industry leading dry mortar from CPI EuroMix has met the aesthetic requirements of the architect and is key to some intricate and visually stunning brickwork at the award-winning Silchester housing development in West London.
Designed by Haworth Tompkins Architects and adjacent to Latimer Road Tube Station, the Silchester development features 112 new homes, community spaces and retail facilities. Winner of the Urban Regeneration Project of the Year Award at the 2018 Brick Awards, the impressive and skillfully detailed brick facades bring a new face to this residential area.
The exceptional craftsmanship and extensive brickwork detailing was down to the specialist skills of the brickwork contractor RI Works working with CPI EuroMix, who supplied a constant quantity of natural mortar to meet the client’s exacting specification.
For the efficient production and delivery of dry mortar, CPI EuroMix provided the mortar for the brickwork in two of its large silo mixing stations. The silo mixing stations mean that operators can produce the exact amount of material required, ensuring a stop to unnecessary waste.
Capable of holding up to 35 tonnes of dry mortar, the silo mixing station is delivered to site where it is plugged into water and power. As required, at the simple touch of a button, the silo produces a perfectly mixed mortar. As well as maintaining mix and colours, the system also minimises waste, helping to reduce the environmental impact of projects during construction.
CPI EuroMix produces a wide range of mortars which are available in an extensive range of standard and bespoke colours. Its mortars are accredited to BS EN ISO 9001:2000, the industry standard accreditation for quality control. Able to offer high grade mortar alongside its exact premixing silo mixing stations, CPI EuroMix ensures that projects benefit from quality mortars with high bond and compressive strength, durability and colour.
With the company’s innovative approach to creating efficient methods of material delivery, whilst minimising waste, CPI EuroMix ensured this stunning new development remained on track for completion.
