Keystone was recently chosen to supply Brick Slip Feature Lintels for Whyte Gates, a private dwelling of substantial character.
Ascent Building Ltd was specified to deliver the craftsmanship necessary to construct the intricate design utilising the highest quality building materials.
The detailed brickwork specified around the openings would require a great deal of skilled labour and brick cutting onsite if constructed using traditional methods. This would have been a time-consuming task and required a high level of accuracy to ensure consistency across the site.
Keystone was approached for the provision of Brick Slip Feature Lintels. The modern building technique accommodated the traditional character of the property, providing effective one-piece solutions for each decorative brick detail.
Keyslip Brick Feature Lintels offered an offsite solution to achieve the decorative elements of the dwelling’s exterior façade. The level of quality control which could be achieved with these products was a major advantage for the architect as all the brick cutting and bonding took place in a controlled environment, free from wet weather, extreme temperature and excessive dust.
Manufactured bespoke, these brick feature components included a 2.4m span Corbelled Arch, defining the porch entrance to the property. This single piece unit saved developer, Ascent Building, significant installation time.
Keystone collected a consignment of brick being used on site. The brick feature units were delivered to site with bricks bonded, ready for installation and final pointing. This ensured that the products blended seamlessly with the surrounding brickwork. Ascent Building was able to deliver the intricate design utilising the highest quality building materials, thanks to Keyslip Brick Feature Lintels from Keystone Lintels.
