Problem: Blackpool Zoo has recently undergone a major refurbishment and redevelopment programme converting four large brick hangars into a new entrance information centre cafe gift shop nursery and elephant house.
The external facade of the building was constructed from old engineering brickworks and the Zoo wanted to update and brighten the external appearance.
Solution: Gables offered a high performance polymer-modified render system with excellent adhesion to the hard engineering brickwork. This was over-coated with a compatible 15 year BBA certified weatherproof protective coating.
The coating has strong elastomeric properties resistant to cracking and flaking which will ensure that despite the harsh elements of the Fylde coastline the buildings will look pristine for at least the 15 year guaranteed lifespan.
Gables' Management Team provided a high quality service delivering the project both on time and on budget.
