Bicester Village, one of the UK’s major outlet shopping villages, has recently undergone a major extension. The work has added additional shopping space and car parking, and Cembrit PB has been used as a render-backer on the exterior facades of the extension.
Bicester Village receives visitors from across the world and the major works to extend the development began in August 2016. Set for completion in January 2016, the building work will add an extra twenty eight shops and over 500 parking spaces. Stockford Construction of Thame, Oxfordshire has a reputation for being one of the UK’s leading specialists in external render system installation working in close collaboration with internationally-renowned material manufacturers.
Stockford installed 800m² of Cembrit PB to the steel frame structure and encapsulated it with the stunning MonoTherm TXF system manufactured and supplied by Monocouche Render Systems Ltd to achieve the decorative weather proof finish you see today at the premises.
Anthony Gordon, Operations Director at Stockford, said "We were delighted with the performance of Cembrit’s PB board as it gave us a good, stable base for our external treatment." “The impressive dimensional stability and low water absorption ensured there was no expansion and contraction, so the project went very smoothly. We and the client are delighted with the results.”
