Description
For a new circular sports pavilion for Radley College in Abingdon, architects JBKS designed the building with a distinctly horizontal emphasis. However, this was nearly destroyed by the requirement to introduce vertical movement joints to the brickwork of the ground floor walls. Due to its circular design, these needed to be at 6 metre intervals. Limetec demonstrated that by using Limetec® hydraulic lime mortar, the integrity of the design could be rescued. Due to its dexterity to accommodate slight movements in the building caused by settlement or thermal shock without cracking, hydraulic lime mortar reduces the need for expansion joints. In addition, Limetec® hydraulic lime mortar has many desirable environmental benefits, enabling to create an elegant and sustainable building.
