RTU delivers the perfect finish at Skainos



RTU delivers the perfect finish at Skainos!

The specialist product range offered by ready mix building expert, RTU, has helped deliver the perfect finish at the award-winning Skainos project in Belfast. Recently named as the RICS Northern Ireland Project of the Year, this remarkable project, promoted by Belfast City Mission, houses a wide range of community groups, offices, apartments and other activities in a building of impeccable sustainability credentials.

The striking internal and external design has been enhanced thanks to two specialist solutions provided by RTU - the new Exposa® decoartive concrete and a ready to use coloured mortar that retains the building's resonance with the area's industrial past.  Exposa® is particularly impressive. Installed in the community allotment area that will see fruit and vegetables grown in planters by community volunteers and local children, amongst others, meant that a durable finish was required. Yet, in keeping with the striking design of Skainos, it also had to be attractive. Exposa® offers the perfect balance of providing a hard wearing, slip resistant finish combined with being aesthetically pleasing. Exposa® offers a natural aggregate finish with the durability and structural integrity of concrete but with a wide variety of rich colours and textures to match the project.

Internally, the versatility of the RTU range was to the fore with the company supplying a coloured mortar to create a natural, rustic look to the brick work in the reception areas, in the church and externally. Skainos is just one example of how RTU is capable of meeting exacting architectural needs while also delivering practical solutions for contractors. But with over two decades of experience in producing high quality, ready to use mortar and plaster as well as ready mixed concrete and screed it is clear why RTU is arguably Northern Ireland's first choice provider for most leading architects and builders.
