The three tower blocks that dominate the area were saved from demolition and are currently undergoing refurbishment.
Priestman Point was the first of the blocks to have been thermally and aesthetically transformed using a Wetherby Insulated Render System.
The structural engineer insisted the slabs of 100 and 200mm Mineral Wool be securely anchored all the way back to the reinforced concrete frame and to enable this specialist 370mm fixings were incorporated into the design.
Basecoat, primer and a 1.5mm silicone texture were applied to the face of the insulation to provide a clean, weatherproof finish.
