The Cartcraigs high-rise project located in the heart of Southside Glasgow was a rewarding project to be involved with allowing real transformation and change in several key areas. In collaboration with MAST Architects and our approved installer PWM, we designed a façade solution that not only significantly improved the thermal performance of the building, but transformed Cartcraigs aesthetically creating a modern, fit-for-purpose living space. After numerous design meetings taking into consideration client requirements, budgets, and timeframes, our industry proven K Systems M Silicone EWI system was selected for the Cartcraigs project. Alongside the Mineral Wool Insulation based system, our high-performance Silicone Thin Coat render, Silicone TC15, was used as the finish. A complete revamp which has given the building a new lease of life and delivered safe, modern and energy efficient homes for the residents. The Cartcraigs project won the 'Refurbishment EWI – Render Finish High Rise' category at the 2022 INCA awards.
