Perfect Edge Finishing for a Prestigious Residential Development with Schluter

  • 11 Apr 2019

Schlüter-Systems has provided a range of trims and movement joints to guarantee a damage-free finish for the tiled walls and floors of Landmark Place, a high-end residential project.

The 280,193 square foot Barratt Homes development has an enviable position on the north bank of the River Thames, near the iconic Tower Bridge, and boasts 165 one-bed suites, one, two and three bed apartments and penthouses across 10 storeys.

It replaces Sugar Quay, a 1970s office building built for Tate and Lyle, which was purchased by CPC Group back in 2012.

The project was a Foster + Partners scheme delivered by Broadway Malyan. A six-year process has resulted in stunning surroundings for those who are lucky enough to have secured a residence, and Schlüter-Systems’ products provide subtle and stylish support throughout various formats of matte and polished porcelain (297 x 297mm, 597 x 597mm, 1197 x 1197mm) and 600 x 600mm marble.

For the kitchen and living space, the task was to prevent the build-up of tension and resultant cracks within tiled coverings.

Schlüter provided 7550 square metres of its uncoupling membrane Schlüter®-DITRA 25, in addition to over 400 metres’ combined length of the 10mm-wide PVC movement joint Schlüter®-DILEX-BWB and the 5mm-wide equivalent Schlüter®-DILEX-BWS, both in brilliant white.

The combination of these two products forms a complete system to guard an installation against damage from movement.

Installed between the tile and the substrate to accommodate the differentials of movement in the tile and substrate, DITRA 25 has become a tile installation staple, having amassed decades of proven use worldwide.

DILEX-BWS and -BWB divide a tile covering into appropriately sized fields for the relief of tension and are available in a variety of popular tones, making them as inconspicuous as possible within an installation.

AREA: Flooring Thresholds

ACTION: Handling transitions between material/tile changes

Transition profiles Schlüter®-SCHIENE and Schlüter®-RENO-T in brushed stainless steel were used to neatly handle changes in the covering material. SCHIENE was used for finishing in areas where tile abutted carpet and the T-shaped RENO-T provided a neat bridge between adjacent tiled areas.

AREA: Bathroom Niches and External Corners

ACTION: Protecting edges of wall tiling/providing feature finishing

Wall profile Schlüter®-JOLLY-MC was used on the niches and external wall corners within all the porcelain bathrooms of the project. Consisting of brass with a plating of chrome, this stand-out finishing trim combines premium durability with a particularly high-shine finish.

AREA: Stair Core (‘Back of House’ Stairs)

ACTION: Finishing stair edges

Schlüter®-TREP-G, a brushed stainless steel stair nosing with an adhered non-slip insert, was used to finish and enhance the safety of the marble-effect porcelain tiled stair core. The white insert selected not only provides slip resistance, but also creates a good contrast with the dark porcelain tile for enhanced user friendliness.

Joshua Gallagher, Project Manager at Marmi Limited, commented: “We find that Schlüter offers a great range of profile depths, so you can always find the right sized trim for job.

“This was of huge benefit at Landmark Place, as there were so many different expanses of tile and material transitions to handle.

“Whenever we order Schlüter products, we always find them to be of the highest quality”, continues Joshua, “Our teams enjoy installing them and never have any problems doing so.”

For Landmark Place, Schlüter-Systems’ extensive range of profile solutions provided the icing on the cake.
