Type of works: supply of weber.therem XM and weber.plast TF.
Situated in the inner ring road of the city, adjacent to the retail quarter, this Travelodge building had to fit in with the other large commercial buildings in the vicinity of the site. Externally the building is clad in weber.therm XM, a lightweight, high performance external wall insulation system incorporating thin-coat polymer render and mesh-cloth reinforcement. The weber.plast TF acrylic-based composite decorative finish was used. weber.plast TF has an even textured finish and is available in a wide range of colours.
weber.therm XM extends the life of existing buildings by keeping the old structure warm and stable, as well as facilitating the decoration of facades, in this example the Terracotta panels mark the new pedestrian route below the building.
