Norwich’s new City Academy will consist of a steel central spine, floor and roof panels with cross-laminated timber external walls. A back to back crescent design will give a view out across the school fields and will be finished using an innovative blend of mortar from CPI EuroMix.
It was decided that the gently curved external walls required a reliable supply of mortar and also the main academy walls needed mortar coloured to compliment the yellow brickwork. The stone faced wings of the building called for a contrasting coloured mortar. These aesthetics were achieved by using black for the stone faced areas and yellow for the remaining brickwork.
The intended mortar is being produced in portable mixing stations with a mixing capacity of 35 tonnes of dry mortar. When connected to water and power supplies the mixer produces a perfect blend of mortar and colour
Whatever the scale of a project it is crucial to ensure that the company used is highly professional and qualified to carry out whatever work is undertaken. There is a huge advantage in choosing a building company that specialises in more than one area as this gives a hassle free process and ensures that work flows seamlessly. It is also wise to check that a firm has the relevant certification and are members of organisations such as the Guild of Master Craftsmen.
Testimonials and reviews are also useful in helping to choose a reputable building contractor.
