Enquire about this Case Study

This mixed use development now provides an early years education unit with external play space and 43 self-contained residential units.

The Porotherm clay block walling system was chosen due to its speed of construction and the fact that the site was being built during the winter months. The innovative 'zero plus' adhesive used in the system meant that the site could continue operating in conditions that would have stopped other sites.

"Considering the cold and wet weather we all encountered in the winter months of 2012/2013 the innovative use of Porotherm allowed us the build when others stood still. The technical support from your end allowed us to proceed with confidence."
Fintan Harte, Project Manager, Ardmore Construction
