Wetherby Building Systems: Cole Gardens, Hounslow

  • 12 Jun 2023

Cole Gardens, in Hounslow, was previously five, three blocks of flats. However, the clever erection of an upward extension to create an extra fourth floor ensures a sizable transformation.

The additional floor with hipped roof will provide 12 two-bedroom units. A fantastic solution in helping to ease the housing shortage, especially in cities.


The specification

Main Contractor, United Living managed the construction and application of the Wetherby system, comprising 60mm – 160mm Stone Wool Insulation and Real Clay Brick Slips.

The client set out to achieve a seamless look to the building, without changing the full façade. Brick slips in colour 764 Grey Multi Waterstruck were the best match to blend in with the existing façade. 

Four Seasons Premium Silicone Render features to create band details to match the floors below.
