Knauf Marmorit, leaders in render and façade systems has totally reformed the look of The Tower, Salcombe in Devon.

Le Page Architects was appointed to remodel and renovate the historic fabric of the Grade II listed house. The former look-out tower and dwelling marks the gateway to the Salcombe Conservation area, and has spectacular views across the Kingsbridge estuary.

The design proposed an extensive refurbishment, harmonising the existing structure to provide a foil and backdrop to the historical element.

Richard Brown Plastering Contractors was specified for the application of Knauf Marmorit’s products. Richard Brown of the firm, commented, “Knauf Marmorit’s products are great. I’ve used them for many years and will continue to do so, no other products have managed to exceed my expectations like Marmorit has.”

Used as an adhesive for Knauf Marmorit’s Warm Wall Basis system, Knauf Marmorit’s SM700 PRO was specified for the prestigious project, a multipurpose render for concrete, brickwork, existing render and approved carrier boards. This genuine multi-functional render can be used in a large range of applications. Developed with special textile fibres, the render combines high adhesion and strength with the ability to repair existing cracked surfaces. Basis, which is part of the Warm Wall range, is an economic solution that significantly reduces energy costs and heat loss through the external façade, in a cost-effective way. Knauf Marmorit’s Warm Wall Basis systems are supplied in square edge expanded polystyrene and can be supplied in a variety of thickness and thermal performances.

SM700 PRO is a genuine multi-functional render that can be used in a large range of applications. Knauf Marmorit are members of INCA, the Insulated Render and Cladding Association.
